The Director General of the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Dame Julie Okah-Donli, has said that human traffickers now target young footballers in Nigeria on the pretense of helping them to secure teams abroad.

This is even as the anti-human trafficking agency said it has now zoomed it searchlight on online recruitment agencies who assist human traffickers to smuggle their agents into homes of would be victims

Okay-Donli disclosed this in Lagos during the Micro Influencers Dialogue with DG NAPTIP, an interactive forum.

“We are holding consultations with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) as to how to cub this dangerous trend. Nigerian’s young men and women playing football must beware of these criminals. There is no football academy anywhere they are taking you to. Once you fall into their hands, they turn you to sex slave,” she said.

The DG solicited for more volunteers at the Internal Displaced Persons camp in North-East, expressing sadness over some IDPs being trafficked abroad, under the guise to make their lives better.
