The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) has received a woman, Omolola Ajayi, who was trafficked to Lebanon.
Julie Oka-Donli, the Director-General of NAPTIP, said her rehabilitation process will commence immediately with a view to putting her back on track.
She said, “ the 23-year-old Omolola Ajayi who was trafficked to Lebanon has safely returned to Nigeria and is being handed over to officers of NAPTIP. I want to sincerely thank @nigimmigration @ToluSadip @Official_NSCDC and all other parties that made this possible.
I want to sincerely thank the Chairman House Committee on Diaspora for her unwavering efforts in bringing Omolola back home safely. We will not give up in the fight against human trafficking.
The victim ‘Ajayi’ had earlier cried out for help in a video that went viral, claiming she was sold into slavery in Lebanon.
The video was seen on many social media platforms where the victim was pleading for help, a situation that pushed the Nigerian Government to act and save her.
