According to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), most crimes involving human trafficking and adoption are committed by women in Nigeria.

This was said on Thursday, May 25, by Fatima Waziri-Azi, director-general of NAPTIP, at a workshop for non-governmental organizations in the states of Akwa Ibom, Anambra, and Cross River.

Arinze Orakwue, speaking on behalf of Waziri-Azi, expressed sadness over the large number of women who have committed trafficking offenses in Nigeria.

“The agency has done well and is still doing well, striving to protect all persons against human trafficking and violence against persons through people-centred access to justice and the provision of safe spaces,” Waziri-Azi added.

“It is sad that women commit the majority of the human trafficking and adoption crimes reported to the agency,”

The goal of this workshop is to provide NGOs fighting human trafficking with the tools they need and to educate them about the social dangers of domestic violence, battery, and other crimes against children.

“This will aid in addressing the nation’s emerging issues with human trafficking and illegal adoption practices.

“We are calling for greater education, particularly at the grassroots, where the majority of these crimes are committed and where many people ignorantly part with their children.”
