  • ‘Active, Very Clean, Goes For $1,000’, Says Advert Selling Nigerian Woman On Social Media In Leb
  • Police have launched a manhunt for a Lebanese, identified as Wael Jerro, after he advertised a woman for sale on social media.

    Jerro put up the passport of the victim, Busari Peace, on a Facebook group, ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon.’

    He wrote in Arabic, “Domestic worker from Nigeria for sale with new legal documents. She’s 30 years old, she’s very active and very clean. Price: $1,000.”

    The passport, which the victim acquired in May 2018, indicated that she hails from Ibadan, Oyo State.

    However, Jerro, who studied at the Arab Open University, had deleted the Facebook page with which he put up the post.

    But this was not before some users took his snapshot and that of his family members.

    While confirming the incident, the Chairman, Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the Nigerian mission in Lebanon had reported the case to the “concerned authorities.”

    The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons also said it had started working to locate and return the victim to the country.

    “We will do everything possible to ensure that she is returned home safely and is reunited with her loved ones,” NAPTIP stated.
