This is not the first time Otubo's name has been mentioned in sex trafficking. In 2015, a lawyer and human rights activist, Emeka Ugwuonye, had opened her can of worms and exposed her as the brain behind most of the prostitute trafficking syndicate where desperate girls were lured into some Asian cities like Dubai, Malaysia, and China for the purpose of prostitution.
Using his Facebook account to make the exposure, Ugwuonye said Otubo was the Madam behind the sex trafficking, describing her as a human trafficker who sends Nigerian girls into prostitution in Dubai.
According to Ugwuonye, Otubo was in the habit of videotaping the girls in the nude and blackmailing them into prostitution in Dubai.
He also mentioned that she was in the habit of dehumanizing the girls, forcing them to swear to an oath as well as maltreating them if they refused to pay the money she demanded from them or refused to sell themselves.
