The suspected Lebanese trafficker, Wael Jerro, who advertised a Nigerian woman for sale on Facebook, has been arrested.
This was made known by the Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who stated it on her Twitter handle on Thursday.
Dabiri announced that the suspect, who was arrested by the Lebanese government, would be prosecuted.
“The Lebanese Government just announced the arrest of Mr. Wael Jerro for onward prosecution against criminal sales of a human, a young Nigerian girl,” Dabiri wrote.
THE DAILY VENDOR recalls that Jerro had advertised the victim, Busari Peace, with her Nigerian passport on a Facebook page, ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon,’ with a price tag of $1,000 on the 30-year-old Ibadan. The incident generated outrage on social media, as many Nigerians called for the arrest of the suspect and rescue of Busari who is suspected to be in captive.
