NAPTIP partners DHQ in fight against human trafficking

The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the Defence Headquarters have entered into partnership to fight human trafficking in the Nigeria.

The partnership is geared towards training of NAPTIP personnel in relevant tactical areas, joint actions and logistics, amongst other things.

The Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor, said they would  partner with the agency in various areas, including training of personnel in relevant tactical areas, joint operations when needed, and other logistics support.

According to him, human trafficking goes hand-in-hand with other organised crimes, and the new slavery must be properly situated as a very serious crime within the country’s defence and security plans to be adequately dealt with.

The NAPTIP’s boss, Imaan Sulaiman-Ibrahim, who visited the defence headquarters with her team, said human trafficking had become a huge security problem to the global community, including Nigeria.
