4 He quoted Waziri-Azi as directing an increased surveillance and round-the-clock monitoring of another suspect in the case, popularly known as Zuma.
Zuma was said to be the facilitator behind the recruitment and transportation of trafficked victims to Ghana.
6 He stated that Zuma was released on bail after two weeks at NAPTIP’s detention facility to assist it to trace Nkiru and her victims.
7 He added that during interrogation, Zuma admitted that Nkiru approached him at a shopping mall in Nnewi and requested for a girl that could work in her bar in Ghana.
8 It was the request that prompted the recruitment of the victim.
9 The victim was said to have travelled with her three-month-old baby and nothing had been heard about them ever since.
10 Adekoye stated that Waziri-Azi assured the community and other stakeholders that NAPTIP would rescue the victim and her son.
11 He quoted her as saying that NAPTIP would not hesitate to revoke the bail granted to Zuma in the event of a breach of the terms of the bail.
