Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), has stated that human traffickers have to be stopped with every legal measure available.

She said this when she paid a visit to the 10 Nigerian girls trafficked to Ghana under the guise of “sales girls”, for prostitution on Monday, June 10.

While addressing the girls in a video she shared on X, she said: “We must declare a war against human trafficking.

“Nigeria cares for you. President Bola Tinubu is so happy that this happening and you can count on all the support. The most important thing is that traffickers have to be stopped. You didn’t come here to do prostitution, they told you you were going to do sales girl, and they lied to you, so you’re not guilty of anything.

“I want to see you in a few years say ‘Honourable do you remember me, now, I’m the governor of Imo State’.”
