An 18-year-old human trafficking victim, Deborah, allegedly lured into prostitution, has revealed that she used to sleep with more than seven men every day at Wagbas Hotel, located in the Ajah area of Lagos.
Deborah said she was tricked into prostitution by two lovers, Ikechukwu Egbulefu and 26-year-old Vera John, who operate the Wagbas Hotel, after promising to help her get decent jobs.
It was gathered that when she got sick and tired of the lifestyle, she confronted John and begged her to return her home. John allegedly gave her N2,000 for transport from Lagos State to Akwa- Ibom State.
Deborah said: “I was tired of the whole thing. Men slept with me every day. Each of those men paid N2,500 after having sex with me”
“Whenever they pay, I hand the money over to Aunt Vera. When Vera noticed that I was tired of the game, she started threatening me. Vera and Ikechukwu said that I must make N30,000 every day and give to them. Yes, N30,000 was my target.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, said that the command received information that Egbulefu and John were involved in human trafficking.
The couple has been arrested.
