2018-06-14 06:01

A man and a woman made a brief appearance in the Strand Magistrate’s Court on charges of human trafficking, keeping a brothel, prostitution as well as possession of drugs last Friday, 8 June.

The two, Thandy Godson Oforbuike (41) and Rozelda Ezeka (32), were arrested in the Strand area two weeks ago during a Hawks-led operation by members of the police’s Serious Organised Crime Investigation Unit as well as law enforcement members of the Vice Squad.

The two allegedly kept a 28-year-old woman confined, against her will.

She was rescued by the team and taken to a place of safety for recovery.

Oforbuike and Fezeka are expected back in court on 20 July.
