Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has come out to say that the constant kidnapping in Nigeria calls for concern.

He recently revealed this when the NAPTIP’s Director-General, Hajia Imaan Suleiman-Ibrahim, led members of the management team on a courtesy visit to the State House on Monday.

According to him, he would do anything in his power to ensure National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP receives more support to help rehabilitate victims and prosecute traffickers.

He added that the government has also strengthened social awareness in communities to discourage trafficking and other forms of human rights abuses.

His words, “Human trafficking indeed presents a deadly trend in our society and we need to protect our citizens, especially the vulnerable in our communities. For those who have fallen victims, we must stand up and protect them.”

“The support and collaboration which the NAPTIP has enjoyed from Lagos State Government could be strengthened. Through the Ministry of Woman Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, we have rendered support to NAPTIP in terms of human and material requirements for your zonal office.”
