Justice Hassan held: “The prosecution has been able to establish the charges against the defendant. “I have also listened to the plea of allocators made by the defendant’s counsel, though, she did not say much.

“The offences that the defendant is charged with are very serious offences, consequently, I hereby sentenced you, Yesiru Onajobi to 10 years imprisonment on each count without the option of fine.

“The terms of imprisonment are to run concurrently. However, the period spent in custody shall be deducted from the jail terms”.

Onajobi was arraigned by the National Agency for Prohibition and Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), on July 18, 2013.

The offences, according to NAPTIP, contravened Sections 13 (1) and 18 (a) of the Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition) Law Enforcement Act 2003.
