Recall that last Wednesday, 169 other illegal immigrants who are indigenes of Edo state, were aslo deported from Libya, among them, were 16 expectants mothers while few others came with children.
The Edo State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, who is also the Chairman, Edo state Task Force Against Human Trafficking, Prof. Yinka Omorogbe, while receiving the second tranche of deportees on Wednesday, said the idea was for the state to eradicate trafficking in persons and stem the illegal migration.
“If you want to travel, do it legally. We are worried about what the people go through when they decided to travel to Libya illegally,” she said.
According to her, government is highlighting the evils of trafficking to the returnees and show them what happend when little girls travel abroad, adding that they are ensuring thorough investigation and prosecution of traffickers of persons within Edo State
“Government is taking the problem as its own. We are interested in those who will partner with the state government to address the issue.
“As we have seen, 80 percent of illegal migrants are from Edo State so it has been a big challenge to us.
“We are trying to assist them and be integrated into the society. Those who want to go back to school would be encourage to go back while those who need training in skill acquisition would be trained in their chosen skills,” she said.
