“Waging war against the life threatening act of gender based violence needs collaborative efforts of all and sundry,” she said.

The Zonal Commander of NAPTIP, Ajiegwu Chinedu, while appreciating the efforts of the Osun governor’s wife for taking up the responsibility of freeing Osun from all forms of violence against humanity, stressed that NAPTIP is always ready to collaborate with both government and Non-Governmental Organisations, NGOs, to make the society safe.

“We have had a series of atrocities such as organ harvesting, human trafficking, among others, being perpetrated by unscrupulous elements before the establishment of NAPTIP,” he said.

While warning hoodlums to steer clear of the state, the Osun NAPTIP boss added that the long arm of the law will catch up with anyone caught in the act of human trafficking and engaging in gender based violence.
