The newly appointed Director-General of the Nigerian National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), has called for intelligence sharing between Nigeria and European countries to combat the menace of human trafficking.

 

Ms. Julie Okah-Donli made the appeal when she received Finland’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms Jirjo Suomela-Chowdhury, who led a team on a visit to Abuja on 24 April 2017.
Ms Okah-Donli explained that for the fight against human trafficking to be won, intelligence -gathering was a basic requirement.
“There must be sustained cooperation, capacity building, surveillance and well as intelligence-sharing as some of the basic ingredients for combating the menace of human trafficking that is presently a global concern. I am also worried over the plights of Nigerian-Europe bound migrants especially on the issues of illegal migrants,” Ms. Okah-Donli said.
RENATE members working with Europe-bound migrants welcome this statement from the NAPTIP, in the belief that there is strength in numbers when fighting to put an end to trafficking and exploitation.
