Two Nigerians have been arrested for alleged human trafficking and four teenagers have been rescued at a house in Randburg, north of Johannesburg.

According to the Police, the young girls, aged between 15 and 18 years have confirmed that they had been raped and forced to take semi-nude photos to be posted on a pornographic website to attract clients.

Just last week a South African woman was rescued from Malaysian sex trafficking syndicate. The 24-year-old woman from Bloemfontein was duped in an internet scam into going to Malaysia.

The teens, three from the Northern Cape and one from Riverlea in Johannesburg, say they were being held in the house against their will.

Luyanda Longwe from the Office of the Member of the Mayoral Committee for Public Safety in the City of Johannesburg says,

“They were forced to wear lingerie and pose for a website that the two suspects were running, a pornographic website.

The two foreign nationals were arrested and taken to the Randburg police station.

The four teenagers were rescued and taken for some social work and therapy after their traumatic event.

The Military place a major role with the SAPS in this particular arrest,” stated Longwe.
