A Badagry magistrates’ court in Lagos State on Thursday ordered that a 39-year-old man, Johnson Saanu, be remanded in a correction centre over alleged human trafficking and breach of public peace.
The Magistrate, Fadahunsi Adefioye, gave the order pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and adjourned to April 25.
Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP Clement Okuoimose, told the court that the suspect promised one Rebecca Mohammed (18) and one other lady jobs in Libya, knowing same to be false.
The prosecutor said that the suspect conducted himself in a manner likely to cause breach of public peace by sending the ladies to Libya without the consent of their parents.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Sections 276 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. (NAN).
