Two young girls and eighteen others who were being used as prostitutes have been saved by men from the state police command and officials of the Anambra State Government.
This occurred during a raid of a hotel in Oba community, Idemili South Local Government Area of the state.

The state commissioner for women and social welfare, Ify Obinabo, while speaking on Wednesday, commended the security personnel’s efforts in aiding in the girls’ rescue.
The underage girls were said to be taken to the hospital for medical examination and possible treatment by the ministry.
