Two women, Osunabi Fatimoh and Olayinka Eniola were on Wednesday convicted and sentenced to 24 months imprisonment, by a Lagos Federal High Court, for human trafficking.

Justice Hadizat Rabiu-Shagari gave the two women the jail term on two out of the three counts charge of conspiracy and trafficking in person made against them by the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and Other Related Matters (NAPTIP).

In convicting and sentencing the two women who are residents of No.5 Itun-Oloja Street Poka, Epe, and 6 Odoroga Street, Odoragusin-Epe, Lagos State, Justice Rabiu-Shagari held that the prosecution had successfully proved the charges against them beyond every reasonable doubt.

 The judge also held that the two convicted women were unable to controvert all prosecution’s evidence, adding that they also admitted committing the offences in their confessional statements.

 Justice Rabiu-Shagari, after sentencing the convicts, held that the period of their jail-term starts from December 7, 2022.

The convicts’ journey to prison began sometime in 2016 when they were brought before the court on three counts charge.

During the convicts’ trial, NAPTIP’s lawyer, Mrs. Becky Jibo, called two witnesses, the victim of the crime, Yilu Motunrayo, who was trafficked to Libya, for prostitution, and the investigation officer, who both testified against the convicts.
