The new Director General of the Nigerian National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) called for intelligence-sharing between Nigeria and European countries to combat the threat of trafficking in human beings.
Ms. Julie Okah-Donli made the call when she received the Finnish Ambassador to Nigeria, Ms. Jirjo Suomela-Chowdhury, who led a team during a visit to Abuja on April 24, 2017.
Ms. Okah-Donli explained that, in order to combat trafficking in human beings, gathering information was a fundamental requirement.
“Sustained cooperation, capacity building, monitoring and information sharing must be some of the basic ingredients to tackle the threat of human trafficking that is currently a global concern. I am also concerned about the difficulties of migrants related to Europe and Nigeria, especially on the issues of illegal migrants,” said Okah-Donli.
Members of RENATE working with migrants in Europe welcome this statement from NAPTIP in the belief that collaboration and cooperation are essential in the fight against trafficking and exploitation.
