Ladies Blame Mothers For Trafficking To Libya, Lament R*pe Ordeal
Omole, a Libyan returnee, has blamed her mother for her trafficking to the North African country, The PUNCH reports.
Omole, who noted that she left a three-month-old baby before travelling, said she was pressured by her mother to undertake the journey.
The victim was one of the 128 returnees received by the National Emergency Management Agency on Tuesday around 6.32pm at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos State.
The returnees – 80 adult males, eight male children and two male infants, 30 adult females, four female children and four female infants – were received by the Director-General of NEMA, Mustapha Ahmed, who was represented by the NEMA Lagos Territorial Office Coordinator, Ibrahim Farinloye.
Omole, 29, said she was not ready to visit her mother yet.
She said, “My mother was approached by a street sister who sweet-talked her to convince me to embark on the journey to Europe so that I could take care of her.
“I had to obey my mother by embarking on the journey when the pressure became unbearable. I left my three-month-old son behind in my mother’s care and I have not seen him since then. He should be six years old now.
“My trafficker paid for my journey from Nigeria to Libya, which started on February 26, 2016. Before leaving Nigeria, my trafficker had informed me that I would refund the money spent on me for the journey though she did not tell me the amount.
