Ademola Adeleke, wife of Osun’s governor, has asked for a strong partnership with the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP).

Adeleke made the advocacy during a visit to the NAPTIP, Osun Zonal Command in Osogbo on Wednesday.

With the launch of a 16-day advocacy campaign against gender-based violence on November 25, my goal in coming here is to establish a strong partnership with NAPTIP.

She emphasized the necessity for widespread participation in the fight against gender-based violence.

The Zonal Commander of NAPTIP, Ajiegwu Chinedu, while appreciating the efforts of the Osun governor’s wife for taking up the responsibility of freeing Osun from all forms of violence against humanity, stressed that NAPTIP is always ready to collaborate with both government and Non-Governmental Organisations, NGOs, to make the society safe.

Before the creation of NAPTIP, “we had a series of atrocities” such as “organ harvesting,” “human trafficking,” and “others,” he claimed.

The head of Osun NAPTIP issued a warning to criminals to stay out of the state, adding that those who engage in human trafficking or gender-based violence will be brought to justice.
