A 30-year-old Nigerian national has been arrested in Johannesburg for human trafficking following the escape of a victim in May this year‚ the South African Police Service (SAPS) said on Thursday.

Two women allegedly lured the victim to a house “under the pretence that they were going to meet one of the ladies' boyfriend. Upon arrival the victim was drugged and forced to wear a miniskirt and was used as a sex slave.

“The Hawks are still hot on the heels of the two ladies who are believed to be the ones used by the main suspect to recruit women to be used as prostitutes.

“The suspect will appear before the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Friday.”
