A Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, sentenced 25- year old man, Eric David, to seven years imprisonment for human trafficking.

The convict was arrested on the allegation of trafficking a 19 year old girl to Mali for prostitution.

Investigations revealed that after he had trafficked the victim to Mali, he returned to Nigeria to recruit more girls.

However, in the process, the victim was able to contact her sister, Juliet, who pretended to also be interested in travelling to Mali. When she contacted Eric and he agreed to come pick her, the suspect was nabbed.

  1. that’s how they will be catching all of you
    It’s supposed to be life imprisonment with hard labour

  2. Good for him. If the law will be catching up with them like this, we will at least have peace in this country.

  3. Nemesis has caught up with him,who knows how long he has been doing this….now he has met his doom

  4. Good he was caught and punished. Who knows how many girls he could have destroyed through trafficking. Good job by our security agencies and keep up the good work to reduce crime in this country because is too much.

  5. Smart sister! And serves him right. Hopefully, all others like him will end up this way, or worse even.

  6. People are still engaging in this dirty act of human trafficking.his jailed term should have be 35years

  7. Only seven years? That’s small, at least 15 years, that’s how they go about looking for lives to destroy.

  8. Who knows how many girls he could have destroyed through trafficking. Good job by our security agencies and keep up the good work to reduce crime in this country because is too much.

  9. That suit him better, assuming he was successful, he will be raising showder up, “Big boy” God don catch, shame to you,

  10. But hope they will allow him serve at least that 7 years so he would have learnt his lessons and change for better.

  11. Good job by our security agencies and keep up the good work to reduce crime in this country because is too much.

  12. Very bad of you mr man, at least your partners will be on the run now. Let him face the full wrath of the offence.

  13. 7yes to me is too small a time to reach him a lesson he won’t forget in a hurry. They should make human trafficking 30yrs jail term so that the heads of the people still planning to engage in this will be alright

  14. 7 years is too short, he deserves 77years since he wants to waste d years of dose girls he shud rot In jail

  15. Seven years imprisonment is not enough jail time for his crime. Efforts should be added to recover the trafficked girl.

  16. May it never be well with people like this. He should spend the rest of his life in jail. 7 is nothing.

  17. End time,how can a boy of dis age be dis heartless…hmmmm am scared
    I don’t know what dis world is turning into

  18. That is a good one coming from our judiciary. Hope the man will learn life in hard way while in prison

  19. That serves him right we still have other people that are fond of this useless act the brainstorm the girls before taking them to do useless job over there, even though the seven years is small

  20. Seven years is a small sentence. He should have been sentenced to life imprisonment wit hard labour. That would have served as a lesson to all

  21. Justice must prevail…Nemesis has caught up with him,who knows how long he has been doing this….now he has met his doom

  22. Wicked man…Thank God for the wisdom of the girl’s elder sister. He’ll learn his lessons in jail.

  23. When you see them with big cars and ask what’s the source, they will say na God oo, unknownly to people this is their job

  24. That guy is too young for this,the love of money is the root of all evil,what about the girl hope she has return safe??

  25. This jail term give to Eric is too small. One can who traffic a girl to Mali for prostitution need to be jailed for 10yrs and above

  26. What a life! Now 7years of your life will just go down without any progress hmmmm paying the price indeed its well
