Dafe Sejebor, the former Group General Manager (GGM) of the National Petroleum Investment Management Services (NAPIMS), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has been arrested by the Huston Police Department in a sting operation

He was arrested alongside 46 other people over alleged involvement in human trafficking. 27 of whom were females, 20 were males. Eight were confirmed victims and eight were charged with human-trafficking related offenses.

Houston Police officer, Sgt. John Wall said during a press conference that 22 local, state and federal agencies partnered up for “Operation Tri Point” over the period of March 19-28 to tackle human trafficking in Katy and Fort Bend County.

Sgt. John went on further to state that despite all the arrests, the most rewarding part of the investigation was rescuing two minors, the youngest being 16.

“We are here to help, first and foremost. “We understand the problem of human trafficking. We understand what it does to the victim, how to fix the victim.

“We understand they are scared to come forward, but we are going to do everything in our power to keep them safe, give them the services they need to move forward in life. And, at the end of the day, we hope we can put the trafficker where he belongs, and that’s in prison”, said Wall.

Officials said some suspects faced various other charges, including possession of a controlled substance, prostitution, sexual assault of a child, tampering with evidence, and unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
