Viral Video: I’ll help facilitate the evacuation of the ladies from Lebanon – NAPTIP DG
The Director-General National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Okah-Donli has promised to meet with the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Sadiya Umar Farouq on Monday and work with State Governments to help facilitate the evacuation of the ladies stranded in Lebanon.
She noted that the cost of chartering a flight amid coronavirus-induced lock-downs across the world “is not cheap”.
“When these ones are airlifted, another batch will cry for help,” she said. “The Federal Government can not fund this alone.”
Lebanon is mired in its worst economic crisis in decades, with the downturn sparking soaring inflation and plunging almost half the country’s population into poverty.
However many Nigerians are being trafficked into the country with the promise of good, well-paying jobs.
