The Police Anti-Human-Trafficking Team attached to the Delta State Police Command, Asaba on Tuesday uncovered human trafficking training home in Umuagu Quarters in Asaba.

They also picked up six women alleged to have been prepared for a journey to Ghana.

The Police Commissioner in the State disclosed that the sponsor of the training ground, one Madam Ejiro was nowhere to be found when the police team stormed the place.

He said: “the police team acted on intelligence gathering to uncover the training home which has been in existence for the past six months; we burst open the door that was closed for unsuspecting passersby in Umuagu Quarters and we saw array of women of different tribes being prepared for a trip to Ghana, unfortunately, the sponsor of the place had escaped”.

The Police boss, who said the arrested women would help for further investigation, however, assured Deltans of Police willingness to eradicate all forms of crimes in the state.

It was gathered that the training base was recently opened by the said Ejiro who hails from Oghara Community, and had been in Ghana over the years until recently she moved into Asaba to assemble desperate women willing to travel out for greener pasture.

Sources said at the training home, the women are allegedly taught the rudiments of making more money through sexual intercourse with sex hungry Ghanaians and white men who come to do business in Ghana.

One of the arrested victims, Christiana Odigie from Benin City, Edo State who spoke to our correspondent said: “the monarch in Benin had placed a curse on trafficking, and I have no job doing, so somebody introduced me to Madam Ajiro in Asaba, she had not taken any money from me, she promised to take me to Ghana before the police arrested us”.
