The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTlP) has held track race in memory of the 26 Nigerian girls found dead on an Italian ship.

NAPTIP collaborated with the Motorsports Club of Nigeria (MSCN) for the event which was held in Evbuobanuosa, Orhionmwon area of Edo state.

Director General of NAPTIP, Juli Okan-Donli, said the country is still in talks with Italy to find out the circumstances surrounding the death of the girls.

She decried the increasing rate of death of Nigerians while trying to cross over to Europe.

“Many of them could be our sisters, but they are no more. So many unaccounted victims of human trafficking have lost their lives crossing the Sahara desert,” he said.

She further noted that, “These incidents are sad reminders of the demerits of human trafficking. These victims erroneously believed that the grass is greener over there in Europe.

“Seeking for greener pastures may be legitimate, but it must be done in the right way through proper procurement of documents.”

The girls were last week buried by Italian authorities.
