TRAFFICKING CRIME: Two Nigerian Brothers Jailed in South Africa

The two brothers kept the women captive in a flat in Arcadia, from where they had to work as prostitutes.
An investigation revealed that these men were based in South Africa before they were jailed. This was on Tuesday, by a Gauteng judge in Pretoria for human trafficking offenses.
According to a South African newspaper, the convicts, who ran a brothel in Pretoria, are Obioma Benjamin Abba (32) and Chinedu Justine Obasi (38). The convicts were sentenced to 12 years and 18 years respectively.
Judge Tolmay said that a life sentence was mandatory in such cases if there were no litigators during proceedings.
The judge explained that the two brothers were first-time offenders and had spent more than two years awaiting a trial. The judge further said that two women who worked as prostitutes for the accused were exposed to a lot of trauma. Said judge noted that they were in the sex trade and got hooked on drugs when they were recruited.
Earlier, two prostitutes told the court of their experience on the streets while their captors kept them hooked on drugs for the deal.
