Lebanese Arrested For Trafficking Female Nigerians.

A Lebanese Mohammed Wafic Hamze by name alongside two other Nigerians have been arrested by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), before a Federal High Court, Ilorin for alleged trafficking of a female Nigerian to Lebanon for exploitation.


The arrest was a fallout of the investigation into the much-publicized case of a trafficking victim whose video went viral on social media about three weeks ago and was subsequently rescued and brought back to Nigeria.

The suspects, Mohammed Wafic Hamze, 62, Adetunji Taofeek Sanusi, 34 and Tunde Awwal, 27, were slammed with a three-count charge which bothered on Human Trafficking.

About 16 victims are believed to have been trafficked to the Middle East Countries by the suspects, out of which only three have been rescued.
