The Federal Government of Nigeria has promised to do all within its
power to end the trafficking of young vulnerable Nigerians by criminal
elements to Europe for sex slavery and other illicit activities.
This is even as the British Government and the International
Organization for Migration, IOM, pledged to continue to lend their
support to Nigeria in combating the menace.
Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola made this known at an event held at
the British High Commission to commemorate the 2021 International
Day Against Trafficking in Persons.
Aregbesola described trafficking in persons as modern-day slavery
which the government will strive to root out.
He commended the British Government and the IOM for the support and
collaborations which they have rendered in such regard over the years.
