Nine victims of human trafficking in Jigawa State have been reportedly rescued by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIN).
The victims were rescued on September 2, 2021 while on their way to Libya via the well towed irregular migration path of Niger Republic. Libya is a popular hub for trafficking of Africans to European countries. Six of the victims were female while the remainder were males in their twenties.
The Jigawa State Comptroller of the NIN, Isma’il Abba Aliyu stated that all the victims were from Ekiti, Benue, Oyo, Lagos and Ogun States. He noted that they came individually to Jigawa State were they boarded a vehicle provided by a so called agent called Alhaji Ibrahim Kano.
The victims are to be handed to the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATION.
Mr. Aliyu stated, “Your mother country is far better than what you are assuming to get abroad in form of freedom and expectations”.
