The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) says it is adopting the whistle-blowing policy of the government to curb human trafficking.
Speaking at a media briefing in Abuja; the Director General of the agency; Mrs Julie Okah Donli says whistle blowers will get 5% of the proceeds realised from arrested human trafficking syndicate.
In her words: “You don’t whistle-blow for nothing, but when we put everything in place there is definitely going to be a reward for every whistle-blower.”
She further stated that human trafficking goes beyond poverty but instead moral decadence, adding that education and awareness is key.
The NAPTIP boss also says the agency has started a weekly sensitisation campaign all over the country, as part of efforts in tackling the illegal venture. (Channels TV)
