Senator representing Kaduna Central and Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Shehu Sani, has said Nigerians are bring used as terrorists in Libya.
Sani said this in Abuja during a visit to the Director General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, Julie Okah-Donli.
What he said:
- The fight against human trafficking should be given more attention just like corruption and insurgency.
- “Nigerian youths are being trafficked to Italy en route Niger Republic and Libya to Europe and so on. Some of them stop over in Libya, where they are engaged in terrorist activities, while those trafficked to Italy are involved in sex slavery. Each time, a tragedy occurs from human trafficking, it affects everyone of us.”
- “This is because if an individual that is trafficked to Libya joins the ISIS or Al-Qaida group, such individuals may come back to the country after the training, to perpetuate evil. This is dangerous.”
