In what has been lauded as a strong message to human traffickers and their allies, the Edo State Taskforce Against Human Trafficking (ETAHT) has nabbed a pastor and his accomplice for conniving with a sponsor in Russia to traffic a 22-year-old girl from the state. It was gathered that the prime suspect, one Pastor Marvelous Odalo, who is the General Overseer of Mega Charismatic Fire Ministry, reportedly worked with a ‘madame’ in Russia to traffic the girl. He was arrested following a tip-off from the girl (name withheld), who has since returned from Russia.

She claimed that she and her sister were deceived and fell for the antics of the pastor and his accomplice. Narrating her ordeal, the victim said her problem commenced after she agreed to go to Europe and her madam’s mother took her to the pastor’s church for oath-taking.

He asked me to repeat what he was saying and that if I refuse to pay my madam, something bad will happen to me,” she said. She added: “I was asked to pay $50,000.
