'Pimp' who allegedly forced woman 'to take drugs, become a prostitute’ nabbed

The 48-year-old Michael Okene Okeke, an alleged pimp, was arrested by the police, on accusations that he lured a 25-year-old female to Cape Town from Gauteng under untruthful pretenses after the two were familiarized by an acquaintance at an event two months ago. Upon arrival, the young female was supposedly locked up at a house in Brooklyn, near Milnerton, somewhere she was forced to consume drugs and become a prostitute.

A month later, while on the streets, the young female succeeded to alert a passing police automobile of her conditions before she was rescued and taken to a safe place. On Friday, Okeke made a brief attendance before Magistrate Sylvan Africa at the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court where prosecutors specified they had no bail profile on the accused. The Okeke will be back in court on Friday. Although, there is not much information on the victim, Brooklyn is known for prostitution along the main road, with countless of women supposed to have been trafficked to the region and forced to into the sex trade. In March police detained Lebogang Molapo, 33, and Andy Okafor, 34, after they supposedly recruited and transported a 35-year-old females from Johannesburg in Milnerton and attempted to force her into prostitution. 

Days later she was attacked and she was kicked out of the house and she immediately reported the matter to police. According to the Salvation Army’s anti-human trafficking campaign, most sexual trafficking also includes some form of coercion such as kidnapping, threats, intimidation, assault, rape, drugging or other forms of violence.
