Pictured! Man Bags 4Years Jail Term For Trafficking 9 Children To Sudan



Federal High Court in Damaturu, Yobe State, has sentenced a 57-year-old man, Shuaibu Salihu, to four years’ imprisonment for trafficking nine underage children to Sudan.

Punch correspondent learnt that Salihu, a native of Farantama village in the Albasu Local Government Area of Kano State, was arraigned by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons on two counts of procuring underage children for trafficking to Sudan.

The anti-trafficking agency said on Monday that the act was contrary to Section 26 (2) of the Trafficking in Person (Prohibition) Enforcement and Administration Act 2015.


Punch correspondent gathered that Salihu, who was a trader, was nabbed by officials of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Yobe State Command, in Damaturu in 2017, while he and the victims were trying to cross the Geidam/Niger Republic border.

It was learnt that Salihu was later handed over to NAPTIP for further investigation and prosecution.

In a release by the Head, Press and Public Relations, Stella Nezan, the judge, Justice Hamma Dashi, sentenced him to four years’ imprisonment without an option of fine.
