Another Nigerian Lady Rescued From Lebanon By NAPTIP

Julie Oka-Donli Julie Oka-Donli SaharaReporters Media The National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons says it has rescued another Nigerian lady, Mrs Kikelomo Olayide, who was allegedly deceived to Lebanon for employment, according to the News Agency of Nigeria. Lagos State Commander of NAPTIP, Mr Daniel Atokolo, said this at a news conference organised by the agency in Lagos on Tuesday. This is coming weeks after Omolola Ajayi, a Kwara-based 23-year-old single mother trafficked to Lebanon on the pretext of becoming an English teacher, was rescued by the government. Olayide returned to Nigeria at 4:00pm on February 2 and is presently under the agency’s care.

Atokolo said, “NAPTIP responded to Olayide’s husband complaints on January 30 when she was apprehended by the Lebanese, who is resident in Lagos. “NAPTIP immediately mandated the suspect to release Olayide in Lebanon to be moved back to Nigeria. “Olayide is a mother of two and an indigene of Kwara.” Atokolo presenting the fact of the case said that the suspect trafficked the victim under the pretence of employing her as a caregiver to his aged mother in Lebanon. “However, upon the victim’s arrival at Lebanon, she was received by an agent, who also handed her over to a family, where she was exploited as a domestic servant. “The victim also reported that she was sexually harassed while working for the said family,” the NAPTIP Lagos Commander said. According to Atokolo, when Olayide’s husband approached the suspect to return his wife, he was threatened. “The suspect demanded that the victim would only be returned if the victim’s family provides another person to replace her. This is so sad,” the state commander said. Travel News AddThis : Original Author : saharaREPORTERS, NEW YORK Disable advertisements :
