A Lebanese man who offered to sell a Nigerian woman for $1,000 has been arrested.
The Chairman of Nigerian in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said this in a tweet on Thursday.
“Breaking news on Trafficked Nigerian girl for sale on Facebook by a Lebanese! The Lebanese Government just announced the arrest of Mr. WAEL JERRO for onward prosecution against criminal sales of a human, a young Nigerian girl,” she wrote.
The Lebanese identified as Mr. Wael Jerro offered to sell the Nigerian domestic worker in a post on his Facebook page.
He wrote in Arabic language calling the attention of buyers but was exposed when a lady who understands Arabic translated his post to readers.
He wrote “Domestic worker from Nigeria for sale with new legal documents. She’s 30 years old, she’s very active and very clean. Price: $1000,”
