The victims, in search of greener pastures, arrive only for their travel documents and belongings to be seized.
A total of 20 victims including three young women detained in the suspects’ house were rescued during a police operation on Saturday January 9, 20
Prior to that, a male victim escaped a few days ago and narrated his predicament to the Muslim leadership through a French interpreter at a Koforidua Zongo.
The police were later informed which led to the arrest of the three suspects who are currently in police custody.
