Cape Town - Four men accused of trafficking women applied for bail in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, said the National Prosecuting Authority in the Western Cape.

NPA spokesman Eric Ntabazalila said the matter was postponed to July 30 as the residential addresses of three of the accused still needed to be verified.

The accused are Nwafor Emmanuel Jideoffer, Billy Emeka Amune, Ogechukwu Kingsley Mmaduekwe, and Francis Chidiebane Nweke.

One of them testified during the bail application.

He would be cross-examined when proceedings resumed next Tuesday, said Ntabazalila.

The men, all arrested in June, allegedly recruited three women from Johannesburg, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Western Cape, and used them as sex workers.

The State reportedly alleges that the men lived off the money the women made as prostitutes. - Sapa
