The National Agency for Anti-Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) revealed that it has plans to expand its campaign to reduce the increase in child labor in the FCT.

Its director-general, Dr. Fatima Waziri-Azi, said in an interview with the Nigerian News Agency (NAN) in Abuja on Friday. Waziri-Azi expressed concern about the increase in child labor in the FCT, but said that NAPTIP will never remain silent on this issue. She said that the agency has expanded the searchlight to a wider area, where people hide in hiding for trafficking crimes in the name of religion.

Waziri-Azi pointed out that people are now using religious schools and internally displaced persons (IDP) camps to traffic people. She said the agency will step up investigations into faith-based institutions, internally displaced persons camps, domestic slavery and others to track down perpetrators of human trafficking. "NAPTIP is not quiet and will never be quiet; it's just that we only need to expand our promotional activities, and we need to let people know what we are doing," she said.

Regarding the training of survivors of human trafficking, the Director-General stated that the agency has done a lot of work, adding that the agency has been able to provide capacity for more than 1,000 survivors of human trafficking and sexual and gender-based violence.
