Gender-Based Violence: Osun Governor’s Wife, NAPTIP Launching Agreement

Mrs. Ademola Adeleke, wife of Governor Osun, called for strong cooperation with the National Anti-Trafficking Agency, NAPTIP.

Mr. Adeleke made this assertion on Wednesday during a visit to the Osun Zone Command, NAPTIP, Osogbo.

“The purpose of my visit is to build a strong relationship with NAPTIP regarding the 16 Days of Activism Campaign against Gender-Based Violence, which begins on Saturday, November 25th.

“The fight against life-threatening acts of gender-based violence requires the concerted efforts of everyone,” she said.

The Regional Commander of NAPTIP, Mr. Ajegwu Chinedu, while appreciating the efforts of the wife of the Osun Governor who took charge of liberating Osun from all forms of violence against humanity, said that NAPTIP has always supported both government and non-governmental organizations. He stressed that NGOs are ready to work together to make society safer.

“Even before the establishment of NAPTIP, we have been subjected to a series of atrocities such as organ harvesting and human trafficking by unscrupulous elements,” he said.

The Osun NAPTIP chief, while warning hoodlums to stay away from the state, added that the long arm of the law would catch up with those involved in acts of human trafficking and gender-based violence.
