Lebanese who advertised Nigerian woman for sale arrested


A Lebanese man, Wael Jerro, who advertised a Nigerian lady for sale on Facebook, has been arrested.

The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, stated this on her Twitter handle on Thursday, a day after Lebanese authorities condemned the action of the man.

Dabiri-Erewa said the suspect, who was arrested by the Lebanese government, would be prosecuted for human trafficking.

Jerro had advertised the victim, Busari Peace, with her Nigerian passport on a Facebook page, with the caption ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon.’

He put a price tag of $1,000 on the 30-year-old Ibadan, Oyo State, indigene.

The Nigerian Mission in Lebanon has demanded that the victim be handed over to it unconditionally and in good health.
