A woman, Hajiya Ladi Dahiru, 60, has been arrested by the police for trafficking persons in Kazaure local government area of Jigawa state. The police claimed to have intercepted her trafficking some girls, aged between 9 and 13 years, to Kaduna, among whom 12 were rescued. Jigawa Police Commissioner, Usman Abubakar Tilli, said Dahiru tricked the girls’ parents into releasing them to her on the pretext that she would send them to school. He added that there was no way Dahiru would take care of the girls since she herself lives in two rooms and a parlour in Kaduna, and sells firewood and food stuff for a living. Tilli said investigation is ongoing.
