Human Right Watch

Meanwhile, an international Organisation, human right watch is calling on the federal government to end the detention of traffic victims in shelters and provide more support for them.

Senior women right researcher, Dr. Agnes Odianbo says the victims are suffering anguish and poverty from the government agencies.

The right advocate claims that many survivors of sex and labour trafficking struggle with unaddressed health challenges upon their return to Nigeria are suffering.

She was speaking in Abuja at the official presentation of the human right reports on trafficking of women and girls in Nigeria.

However, the director-general of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, Julie Okah Donli disagrees with the assessment of the right group.
