NAPTIP intercept nine women in Kano en route to Libya


NAPTIP, a Nigerian anti-trafficking organization, saves nine women in Kano who are en route to Libya.

Nine women were caught by security personnel in Kano State while being trafficked out of northern Nigeria and into Libya.

The women were being transported out of Kano State to Libya by the Nigerian anti-human trafficking organization, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking In Persons and other Related Matters (NAPTIP).

The victims, who ranged in age from 19 to 55, were from southern Nigeria, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

Abdullahi Babale, the NAPTIP Zonal Coordinator in Kano, revealed on Tuesday that the Nigerian police helped rescue the victims.

However, Babale reported that two alleged human traffickers had been detained in connection with the investigation.

He claimed that when they were saved, the victims were on their way to Libya to be used as slave labor.

However, the NAPTIP zonal coordinator pointed out that while the victims would go through rehabilitation before being reunited with their individual families, the accused will be charged in court.
