Two men from Surrey are facing human trafficking-related charges involving a victim who was trafficked in London and other Ontario cities over a period of approximately three weeks.

The London Police Service has obtained Ontario-wide warrants of arrest for the two men and are seeking help from the public in locating them; one woman also faces charges. 

Elkan Vyizigiro, 22, is also known as ‘Lavish,' while Meaz Nour-Eldin, 22, also goes by ‘Streets.'

Vyizigiro is described as male, Black, 5'6”, 160 lbs, with short black hair in braids and a muscular build. Nour-Eldin is described  as male, Black, 6'1”, 160 lbs, with short black hair and braids. In addition, the description says that he has crooked teeth, a small face, and a thin build. They are both from Surrey, B.C.

London police were contacted on Oct. 20, 2019, by a woman in her 20s who reported being trafficked by two men she met through a female. As a result of the investigation, a London woman, 24, was arrested and charged with trafficking a person by recruiting and procuring/recruiting a person to provide sexual services for consideration. She has been released on bail and is scheduled to reappear in London court on Dec.19.

The woman’s name cannot be released, as it could potentially identify the victim in this matter.

Vyizigiro and Nour-Eldin are jointly charged by warrant of arrest with the following Criminal Code offences:

  • Trafficking in persons by recruiting;
  • Procuring/recruit a person to provide sexual services for consideration;
  • Financial/material benefit/trafficking person over 18;
  • Material benefit from sexual services;
  • Obtain sexual services for consideration; and
  • Two counts of advertising another person’s sexual services.

Vyizigiro is also charged with one additional count of each of the following:

  • Financial/material benefit/trafficking person over 18;
  • Material benefit from sexual services; and
  • Obtain sexual services for consideration.

Nour-Eldin is also charged with assault and uttering threats. In addition, he is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant of arrest for kidnapping and other offences in relation to a separate investigation conducted by police in British Columbia.

Investigators believe there may also be more victims. Police are urging any other victims, or anyone who knows of the whereabouts of the two men, to contact investigators with the Human Trafficking Unit by calling 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Both parties should be considered to be armed and dangerous. If seen, do not approach and call 9-1-1 immediately.
