Determined to curb the menace of human trafficking and irregular migration in the state, Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday inaugurated a special State Task Force on Human Trafficking.
Speaking during the inauguration of the task force at the Lagos House, Ikeja, Governor Sanwo-Olu urged all members of the task force to see their appointment as a call to service.
The Governor also charged members of the Lagos State Task Force on Human Trafficking to come up with brilliant ideas, innovations and policies that will assist the State Government in curbing the menace of human trafficking.
He said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated many global inequalities and plunged many economies like ours in Nigeria for instance, into recession, leaving millions of people at greater risk of being trafficked for sexual exploitation, forced labour, forced marriages and other crimes.
