A Lebanese man, Wael Jerro, who put a Nigerian lady on sale on Facebook has been arrested.
The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) confirmed this in a tweet this afternoon. This is coming just a day after the Lebanese authorities themselves condemned the incident.
It noted that following the Facebook post by the suspect, the Nigerian Mission in Lebanon had swung into action.
According to it, the Lebanese Ministry of Labour issued a statement in which it said Jerro’s action was completely unethical and in contravention of the country’s laws.
The ministry had also promised to take legal action against the suspect for human trafficking before a competent judicial authority.
