Operatives of the Nigeria Police, Delta Police Command, have rescued five underage girls allegedly being used as sex slaves in a brothel in Delta State.

This is just as the command had also arrested 10 suspected female prostitutes and 10 males during the sting operation in the brothel.

The underage girls and the other 20 suspects were rounded up on Good Friday, April 15 at about midnight at Fagoma Hotel, located at Aragba in Otokutu in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, during the parade of the suspects on Wednesday, said the underage girls were allegedly trafficked from Rivers State by one Joy who’s now on the run.

He said they were allegedly kept in the hotel by the owners – Edwin Etareri and his wife, Mrs Grace Etariri – who are now in police custody.

“Investigations revealed that one Joy ‘f’ surname unknown now at large, trafficked the underage girls from Rivers State and took them to Patani where they were forced into taking an oath before they were brought to Otu-Jeremi and harbored by one Edwin Etareri, the owner of the said brothel and his wife, one Mrs Grace Etariri currently in custody,” he disclosed.

He gave the names of the underage girls being allegedly reduced to sex slaves to include: Happiness, 13; Esther Godspower, 21; Angel John, 22; Miracle Bishop, 19; and Happiness Isreal, 19.

DSP Edafe further disclosed that the suspects were picked up from the brothel following a tip-off by a concerned resident of the state, adding that further investigations were ongoing.
