The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) on Friday expressed concerned about some Nigerian girls who are stranded in Lebanon.
The Agency in response to the video in circulation about the girls said it shared the pains of the Nigerian girls who were stranded in Lebanon.
The Agency revealed that since May 2020, through the collaboration of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission and the EU -International Organisation for Migration joint initiative and the Nigerian Embassy in Lebanon repatriated more than 100 victims of forced labour from Lebanon.
The Agency promised to work assiduously with all relevant authorities and partners to locate these girls and ensure that they return safely as soon as possible.
NAPTIP further reiterated its appeal to young Nigerians to beware of people dangling tempting jobs in foreign lands as fake labour agents who were traffickers deployed all kinds of tricks in lurinh their potential victims.
