Iringe-koko said following a distress call, a combined team of police and other operatives stormed the area and gave the hoodlums a hot chase.

“So, the joint patrol team quickly moved in and chasef them. They ran into one hotel (brothel). And that hotel is a black spot in that area.

“51 of them were apprehended. They are currently being profiled and helping the police with useful information that can give us a breakthrough.”

Asked if some of those arrested may not have been wrongly picked, she said investigation was ongoing, saying, “Anyone found to be innocent will be released, while others will be charged to court.”
