The federal government has ordered the immediate audit of Non-Governmental Organisations, NGOs, working in the area of human trafficking, following reports that some organisations purporting to be involved in fighting human trafficking in the country do not exist or where they do, their details, including addresses, were falsified.
The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, in a statement lamented that some organisations purporting to be involved in counter trafficking in Nigeria have become a cause for concern as the Agency is inundated with requests from organisations abroad for confirmation of the existence of some organisations fighting human trafficking in the country.
The order, which was on the directive by the National Security Adviser to the President, Babagana Monguno, stated that all NGOs in Nigeria must get clearance from the Office of the National Security Adviser to operate in the country, while asking that all the NGOs and consultants working in the area of trafficking in persons must comply without further delay.
