The Lebenese Government just announced the arrest of Mr. Wael Jerro for onward prosecution against criminal sales of a human, a young Nigerian girl.
Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Honorable Abike Dabiri-Erewa disclosed this in a tweet Thursday.
According to reports in the Media, Jerro who resides in Beirut, Lebanon, had put up the passport of the victim, Busari Peace, on a Facebook group, ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon.’
The user wrote in Arabic, “Domestic worker from Nigeria for sale with new legal documents. She’s 30 years old, she’s very active and very clean. Price: $1,000.”
The passport, which she acquired in May 2018, indicated that she hails from Ibadan, Oyo State.
An Instagram user, @thereneeabisaad, urged the Nigerian government to save the victim, adding that she might have been trafficked.
“I have reported to the Nigerian embassy. Please do the same if you know anyone in the Nigerian embassy in Lebanon,” she added.
Jerro, who studied at the Arab Open University, had deleted the Facebook page with which he put up the post. But this was not before some users took his snapshot and that of his family members.
The Chairman, Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, while confirming the incident, said the Nigerian mission in Lebanon had reported the case to the “concerned authorities.”
This was followed by Jerro’s arrest by the Lebanese Government.
