Chioma Sabina Abaraonye, a Nigerian who for over five years has been trafficking teenage girls into Ghana and forcing them into prostitution has been arrested by the Ghana Immigration Service.
The suspect under the guise of securing them jobs as sales girls in a multi-million non-existent mall and a boutique she owns in the Northern Regional Capital of Tamale, transport them into Ghana and thereafter introduce them into the new trade.
The sex trafficking victims were reportedly forced to undergo a blood ritual, ordered to pay GH¢ 8000 each to her and also given a daily target of at least GH¢100 upon arriving Ghana
“Each night we have to bring at least 100 cedis, otherwise, they will beat us” says one of the victims.
Another victim revealed she sleeps with 10 men a night to meet her daily target.
“If not you won’t know peace. When we came, the madam and her Ghanaian accomplice called Sof took our blood, fingernails, and pubic hair. And told us that now that they have those things from us, if anyone reveals the secret, they will make the person Mad.” the victim said.
However defending herself, Chioma Sabina Abaraonye who has been transferred to Accra for further interrogations and possible repatriation said the young girls begged her for help and that was all she did.
“They said they wanted help, so I brought them. And because of the transport and accommodation and food so me charging them is it a big deal”, Chioma asked.
Ghanaian authorities are reportedly doubling efforts to arrest her accomplice said to be on the run.
