A Nigerian businesswoman has been remanded into police custody for human trafficking.

She is facing trial in Ghana for allegedly bringing girls from Nigeria to engage in prostitution.

The suspect, Blessing Atia is reported to have collected the victims’ panties, pubic and armpit hair and threatened them that if they refused to work for her they would go mad.

After bringing them to Ghana, the suspect demanded 4,000 Ghana cedis each from the victims, which she said would be used to defray the cost she incurred in transporting them to Ghana.

Blessing Atia is facing four counts of human trafficking, and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

An Accra Circuit court, presided over by Mrs Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye, has remanded Blessing into Police custody to reappear on September 18.

The Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) C.K Abadamlora, told the court that one of the victims was unemployed, with another being a hairdresser. 

The accused person resides at Kata Hostel in Accra.

DSP Abadamlora said in June, this year, Blessing travelled to Nigeria and met two of the victims in a salon and during a conversation, Blessing promised to bring them to Ghana to be engaged as sales girls in her boutique.

According to DSP Abadamlora, Blessing also promised to pay them GH¢400.00 each monthly.

On June 15, this year, the victim arrived in Ghana and they were hosted by Blessing at the Kata Hostel for two days.

The prosecution said Blessing took the victims to Bigot, a spot near Lapaz, and forced them into prostitution and they made GH¢600.00 each for her.

On August 30, this year, Blessing informed the auntie of the two other victims that she needed them to run her boutique in Ghana.

She, therefore, paid their transportation and they joined her at Kata Hostel, where she lived.

The prosecution said the accused person collected the victims’ panties, pubic and armpit hair and threatened that if they refused to work for her they would go mad.

In addition Blessing demanded GH¢4,000.00 as the cost she had incurred before she would allow them to go back to Nigeria.

The victims, after engaging in prostitution for some time, realised they could no longer continue with the act and demand to go to Nigeria but Blessing refused.

On August 30, this year, two of them informed a police officer about their ordeal and Blessing was arrested at Kaneshie in Accra.

According to the prosecutor, two other victims were also rescued at the Kata Hostel.

Prosecution said the victim’s panties, pubic and armpit hair, eight pieces of condom and two personal lubricants were retrieved from Blessing.
