Magu warns human traffickers against practice
The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has warned human traffickers to shun the practice and join hands in restoring the good image of the country.
Magu gave the charge, yesterday, through his representative, Deputy Chief Detective Superintendent, Thelma Eke, at the 2019 World Day against Human Trafficking.
The chairman who urged the perpetrators to desist from the act revealed that the commission was working with the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, (NAPTIP), to hunt down the perpetrators residing within and outside the country.
He stressed that the aim of joining the walk was to create awareness for those involved in the act to desist or face the wrath of the law.
“We are watching, and we will come after you if you refuse to stop giving Nigeria a bad image. We are here today to show NAPTIP that they are not alone in this fight and that the EFCC will continue to support NAPTIP in all possible ways, in making sure Nigeria becomes a better place for all of us,” he said.
The Director-General of NAPTIP, Julie Okah-Donli, solicited the support of government at all levels to rid the country of the menace of human trafficking.
