The Director-General of the agency, Prof. Fatima Waziri-Azi, disclosed on Friday that officers of the agency busted the trafficking syndicate on Friday, noting that the suspects are part of the syndicate that specialises in moving young female Nigerians between the ages of 16 and 26 to India for sexual exploitation and possible organ harvesting.
