Officers of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have rescued three teenagers from prostitution in the Itamaga area of Ikorodu, Lagos State.

The girls were rescued at the weekend when a patrol team noticed their suspicious movements within the area.

The girls revealed that they were fleeing the custody of a mistress who brought them from Akwa Ibom to Lagos under the guise of employment.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the victims, Saviour aged 14, Bright aged 13, and Deborah aged 12 (surnames withheld) upon reaching Lagos were locked by their mistress (still at large) in a hotel and starved for days as a means to force them into accepting prostitution.

The Commander RRS, CSP Saheed Olayinka Egbeyemi, has in line with the directive of the commissioner of police Lagos state, CP Abiodun Alabi, transferred the victims to the Gender Unit of the Lagos State Command for further investigation
