The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) says it is stepping up measures to prevent, combat and eradicate trafficking in persons in the country.

Mrs Ebele Ulasi, the agency’s Assistant Director, Public Enlightenment, NAPTIP, said this on Monday in Abuja at World Day Against Human Trafficking organised by U.S. Embassy in Abuja in collaboration with Devatop Centre.

Ulasi said that the agency had resolved to establish desks at points of entry at the nation’s international airports “to destroy trafficking business in the country.”

She added that the measure was to do thorough checking of travellers with a bid to crack down suspected traffickers and rescue the victims.
