National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Person (NAPTIP) yesterday received Temitope Ariwolo who was falsely charged for attempted murder in Lebanon at Nnamdi Azikiwe airport, Abuja.
Temitope, who was a domestic worker in Lebanon was to be evacuated home in May but was stopped by the airport authority following an order from her Lebanon boss who accused her of attempted murder and theft.
According to NAPTIP Director General, Julie Okah-Donli, the repatriation was the commitment of the agency in collaboration with Lebanese government in ensuring that justice is given to her.
“Temitope’s video went viral and was later charged for attempted murder and theft, which we all know that it wasn’t true. So, we brought her home to get more information and ensure that she gets justice, we will also go after the traffickers and prosecute them”, Okah-Donli said.
She said that Temitope will undergo 14 days mandatory quarantine, profiled and be given proper counselling to enable her recover from her traumatised state.
