Ghana: Four Nigerian Women In Court For Human Trafficking

Four Nigerian women, arrested for trafficking 46 girls into Ghana to engage in prostitution, will be put before court today.

The girls, who were deceived they would be working in restaurants, say they have been forced to spend months in prostitution.

They were rescued by anti-human trafficking unit of the Ghanian Police following a tip-off by a Christian worker.

The girls are currently being counseled by the department of social welfare before they are integrated into their families in Nigeria.

The search is on for more offenders.

Police will liaise with the Social Welfare Department to counsel the victims and help them rediscover themselves, whilst efforts are made to reunite them with their families.

Deputy Minister for Women and Children Affairs Hajia Hawawu Gariba Boya has admitted Ghana is fast becoming noted as a destination for human trafficking.

She, however, maintains that Ghana was collaborating with other countries to reverse the situation.
