Baatsona police have rescued 10 Nigerians from their traffickers at Coastal Estates, Spintex Road, Accra Ghana.

In a police report cited by Ghana’s JoyNews, an SOS call to the police was said to have been sent on Tuesday, July 6, at about 4 pm.

Giving more details, the report indicated that the police followed up on the information to the scene and discovered that a Nigerian, Amas Ekhosuehi, 24, and five “Nigerian accomplices” had lured the young men into Ghana through the closed borders to engage them in cyber fraud activities.

The young men who looked pale and malnourished had several marks of assault on their backs, the Ghanaian medium reports.

The victims claimed they were lured in batches to Ghana to seek greener pastures; however, they were camped in a house and prevented from going out but physically abused each time they requested food or failed to swindle unsuspecting victims to send money.

The five other suspects gave their names as Apostle Sunday, 27 from Akwaibom State; Monday Echeh, 25 from Edo State; Aboki O.C., 21 from Edo State; Patrick Odez, 26 from Cross River State; and Henry Ochuko, 26, from Edo State.

Their victims, aged between 21 and 24, hail from Edo, Imo, and Nasarawa States. Among them are Andrew Musah, 24; and Amaborgwo Josiah, 24, both from Nasarawa State.

The suspects are currently in custody being processed for court.

Meanwhile, the police also retrieved 14 laptops from the house. Ghana Immigration Service and Human Trafficking Unit are involved in the investigations.
