Most trafficking crimes in Nigeria are committed by women – NAPTIP

 he National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) has stated that women carry out majority of the human trafficking and adoption crimes in Nigeria. Fatima Waziri-Azi, director-general of NAPTIP, said this on Thursday, May 25, at a workshop organised for non-governmental organisations in Akwa Ibom, Anambra and Cross River states.Waziri-Azi, represented by Arinze Orakwue, expressed sadness over the large number of women who have been involved in trafficking offences in the Nigeria.The agency has done well and is still doing well, striving to protect all persons against human trafficking and violence against persons through people-centred access to justice and the provision of safe spaces,  Waziri-Azi said. It is sad that most of the human trafficking and adoption crimes reported to the agency are committed by womenThis workshop is aimed at equipping NGOs involved in the fight against human trafficking and teaching them the social dangers of child labour, battery and other domestic crimes.This will help address emerging issues in the trafficking of persons and illegal adoption procedures in the country.We are advocating increased enlightenment, especially at the grassroots, where many people ignorantly give out their children and also where these crimes are mostly committed.  The post Most trafficking crimes in Nigeria are committed by women – NAPTIP appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
