An Army hero has bravely shared her incredible story of survival after being sex-trafficked as a teen.

Amber Causey was just 16 when she was taken in by a manipulative pimp who forced her to sell sex.Army veteran

She was raped hundreds of times and spent a miserable existence sleeping between crack houses and buses just to say warm. Now aged 29, Amber is a celebrated US Army veteran and has completely transformed her life.

A mum-of-two with two master’s degrees, she has devoted her life to ending the child trafficking trade. Amber told how her ordeal began one day when her pimp flirtatiously dropped a note with his number at her feet.

The man, whom she believed was her boyfriend, lavished her with food, new clothes and a phone.

But after a few weeks, he took her to his apartment and ordered her to walk the streets selling sex and threatened to beat her if she rebelled.

Amber, who had already experienced abuse as a child, was forced to sleep with up to ten men-a-day and claims she was “severely beaten” if she made less than $500.

For nine months in 2006 and 2007, Amber survived on a daily allowance of $20 for food and condoms.

The man who trafficked Amber, who she does not wish to name for safety reasons, was not convicted in her case but has served time for battery and drug offences.

Meanwhile Amber, who has a criminal record after being convicted of prostitution in 2006 despite being just 16 at the time, has devoted her life to helping end human trafficking.

She tours high schools educating young people on the topic and hopes to influence policy.

Her aim is to create a world free of sexual exploitation for her daughter Aaliyah, eight, and son Armoni, two.

“I still think about what happened and I live in a different reality because of it. I have PTSD and I’m afraid of the dark.

“But the main thing is I’m scared for my children.

“I want to be able to protect my kids – and other people’s – from the same thing happening to them.”

Why the man in Aso Rock is not Buhari – Ex-APC spokesperson, Abdullahi

Former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, has shared his reasons the Muhammadu Buhari Nigerians voted into power in 2015 is not the same President at Aso Rock today.

Abdullahi, who was part of the mass defection from the ruling party, called on Nigerians to jump out of Buhari’s train, adding that the man presiding over the affairs of the nation today was not the leader Nigerians trooped out enmasse to elect in 2015.

He said this Monday in a chat with Vanguard in reaction to the vote of no confidence passed on President Buhari on Sunday by leaders of the Northern Elders’ Forum.

The Director, Communications and Strategies of the PDP, Presidential Campaign Organisation pointed out that he was not joining the cloning debate, but insisted however, that Buhari had dumped the principles for which he was widely adored.

He said, “Some of us risked our political careers to rally round Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and today we have realised that we are in a one-chance vehicle. But I say that having realized where we are, it is time to get down from that one-chance vehicle.

“The Northern Elders Forum was one of the strongest supporters of Buhari in 2015 but they have now realised that the Buhari we have today is the not the Buhari they voted for in 2015.

“The Buhari most of us risked our political careers for was the Buhari whose memory we carried with us since 1983. That Buhari had zero tolerance for corruption and was a strong -willed leader.

“But the Buhari of today has been receiving corrupt people into his party who are hoping he will give them cover. Today, the position of the Northern Elders Forum has vindicated some of us who saw the wisdom in leaving the party (APC) to join the crusade to rescue Nigeria.”
