At least five hundred and forty Nigerians are set for deportation from Libya, beginning from today, August 10, an official has said yesterday.
Julie Okah-Donli, Director-General, National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), made this known on Wednesday in Osogbo, at the inauguration of the North-West Zonal Command Office of the agency.
While saying that the deportees would be transported back to Nigeria in three batches of 180 each, the NAPTIP boss added that more than 2,000 Nigerians were deported from various parts of the world from February till date, over various migration offences, including human trafficking.
Mrs. Okah-Doni disclosed that the agency had rescued and supported more than 12,000 victims of human trafficking, and also secured 325 convictions since its inception in 2003.
She decried the rising trend of deportation of Nigerians from different parts of the world, especially in Africa, and described the situation as “frightening”.
Mrs. Okah-Donli, who described human trafficking as a modern day slavery, urged stern measures to end it.
She reaffirmed NAPTIP’s commitment to implementing the Trafficking in Persons(Prohibition) Enforcement and Administration Act of 2015, and declared that there would be no sacred cows.
Mrs. Okah-Donli identified Osun, Ekiti and Ondo among the endemic states in trafficking in persons in Nigeria, saying all hands must be on deck to change the trend.
