The Nigerian woman put up for sale by a Lebanese on Facebook has been rescued.
In a tweet today, The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the victim, Busari Peace, is currently with the Nigerian Mission in Beirut, Lebanon.
NIDCOM wrote; ”Update on the Nigerian girl that was put up for sale. The Nigerian girl who was trafficked and put for sale by a Lebanese man, Wael Jerro, has been rescued. She is presently with the Nigerian Mission in Lebanon.”
Jerro had advertised the victim with her Nigerian passport on a Facebook page, ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon.’
He put a price tag of $1,000 on the 30-year-old Ibadan, Oyo State indigene.
The post generated outrage on the social media, as many Nigerians called for the arrest of the suspect and rescue of Busari.
This is coming days after the arrest of Mr. Jerro.
