According to him, “Some were arrested within Benin as a result of petitions from parents of the victims. Most of them were being trafficked to Europe through different routes.

“Some were brought back from Lagos, Kano and different parts of Nigeria. Conviction takes a lot. But for the period under review, we have convicted three.”

Odita disclosed that most of the victims were teenagers aged 13 and 19 and have all been reunited with their families. He said the Zonal Command rescued over 2,000 victims and convicted 50 persons in Edo and Delta, since its inception in 2004.

He disclosed that many human traffickers had shifted their routes to rural areas due to the heavy security presence in the metropolis. He added that the agency would continue to monitor their movements. 

He advised parents and guardians not to be tempted by financial gains to subject their children and wards to inhuman treatments, adding that the current recession should not encourage slavery.

“Parents should stop encouraging their children to be trafficked. They should also be careful and keep an eye on their kids. Recession should not encourage slavery. Recession is everywhere,” he added.
