In Child Trafficking, Human Trafficking on January 24, 2013 at 12:19 pm

The Federal Executive Council on Wednesday announced that it was seeking a seven-year jail term for human traffickers, by approving a draft bill that would be sent to the National Assembly for consideration, deliberation and passage into law. The draft bill is titled “Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition, Enforcement and Administration) Bill, 2012”.

The Minster of Information, Labaran Maku said, “Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition), Law Enforcement and Administration Act, 2003 (as amended)”, is fraught with deficiencies and grossly inadequate to effectively combat the scourge of human trafficking in the country.”

  1. Modern day slavery is still practice in of the private companies in Nigeria do not pay good salaries,no benefit,no medical insurance,no life insurance and at time make their staffs work extra hours without pay.
    One of the Staff in a certain company recently went mad and all the company did was call the family to come and pack him away without any benefits.He worked for this company for 4 years without any salary increase.
    And i have discovered that most of them do not know their labor rights.
