The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP has rescued of 350 Nigerians trafficked to Libya, as well as arrested six traffickers, from January till date.
NAPTIP Zonal Commander in Lagos Aganran Alao announced this on the side lines of a town hall meeting with the theme: “Promoting local opportunities as an alternative to irregular migration” organised by the International Organisation for Migration, IOM.
He added that the agency is committed to ensuring that human trafficking is reduced to the barest minimum and we would ensure that it happens.
Alao announced that NAPTIP had begun a media campaign and community awareness at the grassroots level, because grassroots people were soft targets for traffickers.
The Commander however, called on the public to report suspicious cases of human traffickers and trafficking in their respective communities.
