41-year-old Nigerian jailed five years for human trafficking

Favour Blessing, a 41-year-old Nigerian living in Tamale, was given a five-year prison sentence by a Tamale circuit court for participating in forced prostitution and human trafficking.

The accused begged to the court for mercy before the judge, his Lordship, Alexander Oworae, delivered the verdict.

The judge, however, rejected her request to enter a plea because she believed the punishment would dissuade others from engaging in human trafficking.

She was then given a five-year prison term by him.
