The suspects are Mrs. Doncas Adefowoke, Mrs.Oyetunji Ebunoluwa, Miss Adefowoke Toyin, and Miss Boluwatife Soremi.

Among the suspects are two prophetesses who confessed to having converged more than 30 persons in preparation for the same mission before the arrest.

Addressing journalists in his office in Ado Ekiti, the commandant of the Amotekun corps, Mr. Joel Komolafe, noted that the suspects were arrested after a tip-off by some citizens.

He confirmed that preliminary investigation revealed that the suspects, who have formed a cartel, had finalized arrangements to ferry the two victims to Libya without the consent of their parents.

According to him, the suspects were already on their way to hand over the victims to agents who will sell them as slaves to Libya before the command was able to track them.
