THE Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has revealed that the 10 Nigerian teenage girls allegedly trafficked to Ghana for prostitution have returned to Nigeria.

The Chairman of the Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, revealed their arrival in Lagos yesterday after being rescued in Ghana.

These girls, predominantly from Imo State, were accompanied by representatives from the Imo State government.

Upon their return, they were received and profiled by officials from the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).

Reports indicate that the girls, all under the age of 18, were enticed from Nigeria to Ghana by an unidentified individual, who has since been apprehended by the police in a neighboring West African country.

The rescue of these girls was carried out by the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation (NIDO), a group representing Nigerians living in Ghana.

A NIDO official highlighted in a viral video the dire situation these girls were in, being exploited for purposes they did not consent to, and expressed the gravity of the matter.

Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a prior statement, described the situation as heartbreaking and urged NAPTIP to take decisive action regarding the trafficked girls.
