National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, the International Organization for Migration, IOM, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, UNODC has stressed the need for people to listen to the voices of human trafficking survivors, saying that they play a crucial role in the fight against human trafficking.

 

A joint press statement from NAPTIP and the two International Organisations indicated that human trafficking survivors are key actors in the fight against human trafficking and there is the need to listen to and learn from them as they play a crucial role in establishing effective measures to prevent this crime by identifying and rescuing victims and supporting them on their road to rehabilitation.

 

Also, the statement quoted  the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq,  as assuring that “Nigeria will at all times ensure that victims of human trafficking are given their rightful place and that all reintegration and rehabilitation efforts will take into cognizance their special needs.”

 

It quoted the  Director-General of NAPTIP, Senator Basheer Garba Muhammed as saying that, “The impact of exploitation on victims is so devastating that victims are physically affected, they are psychologically and emotionally traumatized and are oftentimes socially excluded. I feel it is time for victims of trafficking to anchor the awareness-raising on their situation, for a better promotion and protection of their rights, while experience shared could also serve as a warning to prevent potential victims from being trafficked.”

 

“Our efforts must be guided by survivors of trafficking, their contribution is essential to address risk factors and patterns, and to identify and protect victims and ensure their access to justice and recovery, while holding their exploiters accountable,”  it quoted Mr. Edward Kallon, UN Resident Coordinator to Nigeria.

 

The statement also quoted Franz Celestin, Chief of Mission at IOM Nigeria as saying that, “We recall the commitments made by the Federal Government of Nigeria in the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration to facilitate the access of trafficked persons to justice, to allow them to safely report experiences without fear of detention, deportation or penalty, and to provide migrants who have become trafficking victims with protection, assistance, and redress.”

 

Ms. Elisabeth Bayer, UNODC Deputy Country Representative added that “bringing perpetrators to justice is the only way to provide restitution for identified victims, to ensure they have access to justice, and to prevent further abuse and exploitation.
