The Nigerian Immigration Service says it has arrested a suspected human trafficker with five female victims en route Niger Republic to Europe.
The Comptroller General, NIS, Mr Muhammad Babandede, disclosed this in a statement by the Service Public Relations Officer, Mr Sunday James, on Saturday in Abuja.

He added that the arrest was made by the operatives at Kongolam border, Katsina State.

Babandede reiterated that the days of crossing national frontiers without proper documentation and melting into border communities was over, as the Special Border Corps and regular border control officers were on their toes 24/7.

He said that the SBC and regular border control officers were patrolling with the aim of enforcing adequate border security and control, while human mobility was regulated in line with the Federal Government’s directive.

The CG congratulated the team at Kongolam for being at alert to their duty and operating a watertight system which ensured the apprehension of the suspected human trafficker.

He said their dedication was due to the various training, operational exercises and drills that they had been exposed to.

“I want to commend the Katsina Command for making it difficult for traffickers and human smugglers to pass through the border,” he said.

Babandede said the suspect and the five female victims had been handed over to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, Kano Zonal office, for further necessary action in line with NIS mandate.
