The Nigeria Immigration Service(NIS) has rescued nine victims of human trafficking in Jigawa State.

State Comptroller, Isma’il Abba Aliyu disclosed this while briefing newsmen at his office, in Dutse the state capital.

He said the victims were rescued on Thursday along Kazaure-Daura-Kwangolam by Kazaure patrol team of the Nigeria Immigration Service.

They were rescued on their way to the Niger Republic en route to Libya, then to European countries.

He explained that six of the victims were females while the remaining three were males between the ages of 20 to 29.

“All of the victims are from Ekiti, Benue, Oyo, Lagos and Ogun States,” he said.

” They came individually from their states and boarded the vehicle from the pack through their agent, one Alh. Ibrahim Kano.”

Aliyu said the victims will be handed over to NAPTIP for further investigation.

He also advised parents and the general public to always desist from being deceived by sending their children and wards abroad for greener pasture.

“Your mother country is far better than what you are assuming to get abroad in form of freedom and other expectations,” the comtroller stated.
