Police parade two ‘human traffickers’ in Sokoto
Two suspects have been paraded by the Sokoto State Police Command for their alleged involvement in human trafficking and other related offences.

Speaking to reporters in Sokoto, the state's police commissioner, Muhammad Gumel, claimed one of the suspects was apprehended at the border town with a victim he was attempting to smuggle to Libya via the Niger Republic.

The CP reported that the suspect's companion was taken into custody at a well-known hotel in the Sokoto metropolis.

He declared that the two suspects would be looked into to determine their level of involvement in a human trafficking ring that was making the Sokoto axis a main conduit.

The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) officials in Sokoto last year freed over 22 people from alleged human traffickers.

In a related development, members of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Sokoto have detained five people accused of being involved in kidnappings in Sokoto and neighbouring states.
