The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons has revealed that records available to it shows that no fewer than 25,000 trafficked Nigerian women and girls are trapped in Mali.


The Commander of the Benin Zone of NAPTIP, Mr Nduka Nwanwenne, gave the figure on Tuesday at a workshop organised for media professionals in Lagos.
