The Nigerian Ambassador to Mali, Mr Iliya Nuhu, has raised the alarm over the high rate of trafficking of Nigerian girls to the West African country.

Nuhu said in Bamako, the Malian capital, that the problem had grown in ‘magnitude and sophistication’ to the extent that a substantial number of Nigerians in Mali seem to be thriving on it.

He described the practice as ‘a kind of modern-day slavery’ with Nigerians going to their villages or towns to bring in young girls between the ages of 10 and 15.

He said the traffickers were taking advantage of Nigeria’s economic problems to lure their victims with promises of setting them up in ‘very lucrative businesses abroad’.
