The latest comes hot in the wame of a viral video posted on social media by a kin of the missing girls.

In the video, she said that her cousin and six other teenage girls had been lured from their homes by a caucasian male who had promised them lucrative auditions.

“My cousin and six others were lured from their home in the dead of the night by a man in the guise of auditions that would help them make moneu,” Fiona Kenya captioned the viral video.

The United States telephone number that had been used to communicate with the girls had gone off shortly after they went missing.

Its not yet clear whether any suspect has been arrested in connection with the girls’ disappearance amid fears that the girls may have been lured by a trafficker.
