Officials of the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS, have arrested and detained 13 teenage Chinese prostitutes on a raid of their base on Emina Crescent, off Toyin Street, Ikeja, Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, following a tip off.
More than 40 teenage girls were brought into the country and camped in an apartment for Nigerian politicians, business executives and expatriates to hire for sex at the cost of between $1,000 and $2,500. The cartel was run by Chinese couple named Sun and Yin Li.
They’ve been operating for a while and a source in the know said the business was booming and the couple were in the process of importing more girls before they were raided. Only 13 girls were picked from the apartment.
The Chinese couple, along with some other girls, managed to escape from the apartment and have now gone hiding.
NIS spokesman, Joachim Olumba, confirmed the arrest and said the girls are in their custody.
He also said that “We are on the trail of the kingpin of the sex ring. After investigations, the girls will either be deported or handed over to their embassy here in Nigeria for appropriate action.”
