A Lebanese, identified as Wael Jerro, that used to offer a Nigerian female for $1,000 on Facebook has been arrested by the Lebanese government. The Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, stated this in a tweet the other day.
She wrote: “Damaging information on trafficked Nigerian woman to buy on Facebook by a Lebanese! The Lebanese Government just announced the arrest of Mr. WAEL JERRO for forward prosecution versus criminal sales of a human, a young Nigerian lady.”
Dabiri-Erewa, nonetheless, did not claim if the Nigerian woman, thought to be a local of Oyo State, has actually been rescued. The Lebanese, who supplied to sell the Nigerian domestic worker had posted on his Facebook web page in Arabic language calling the attention of buyers but was subjected when a lady that comprehends Arabic translated his blog post to readers.
He created “Domestic worker from Nigeria for sale with new legal documents. She’s 30 years old, she’s very clean and very active. Price: $1000.”.
Although Wael Jerro’s account could not be found, the Facebook industry Jerro labelled in his blog post– Buy & Market In Lebanon (Original) الأصلي– still showed up on the social networks platform.
Calls to the contact number noted on the Facebook web page were not returned. But the operators of the web page claimed it is only to help with trading between interested parties as well as are not responsible of what is published on the page.
