Taxi-drivers protect girl from Nigerian drug-lords
CAUGHT IN THE ACT: Nigerian drug lords in eMalahleni's notorious Jellicoe Street got more than they bargained for when taxi drivers rained down on them after a 20 year old woman accused them of trying drug and kidnap her after luring her with a job. PICTURE BY eyewitness.

She had been promised a job but found the place was a drug den.

A 20-year-old girl got saved from the trap of drug-lords and pimps.

Reports show that the young woman applied for a job from an advert she saw online.

But when she arrived in the area on Wednesday, she said she was fed drugs and refused.

The girl apparently slept over at the drug den but on Thursday morning all hell broke loose when she attempted to escape.
