Kwara State governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has blasted the increasing trend of human trafficking in Nigeria and has promised to deal with whoever is caught in the act in his state.
Abdulrahman revealed this today in Ilorin in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, reacting to a clip footage which featured one Ms. Ajayi Omolola, a victim of human trafficking in Lebanon.
According to him, it is nothing but slavery and it will not be condoned.
He added that the highest penalty is needed as a deterrent for culprits.
His words, “The governor condemns this development in the strongest terms possible, and has immediately linked up with the security agencies to get to the root of the matter.
“We are glad to announce that three suspects, comprising two Nigerians and the Lebanese referred to in the footage, have been arrested in connection with the case and the suspects are being interrogated.
“Apart from Ms Ajayi, discreet investigations by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), in Kwara State have revealed that there are at least 28 other victims of this horrible trafficking gang.
“The governor is concerned that fellow human beings are engaging in another round of slavery despite the horror and unquantifiable loss of the 20th Century.”
“He also calls for the highest penalty for anyone caught in the activity, no matter their class in the society, to deter others from engaging in it.”
