It has been difficult for approximately 20,000 Nigerian girls who are reportedly trapped in a disheartening sex slave business in Mali, to find their way back to their homeland because too many influential people are benefiting from their misfortunes. An investigation by Al Jazeera News discovered this and also confirmed a “collusion between Malian law enforcement and traffickers is hampering rescue efforts.”
It gathered that a Nigerian government agency has been making moves to get freedom for the victims. Some of them were captured in a documentary looking helpless with their situation.
According to an anti-human trafficking activist, Prosper Michael, in the clip posted via Al Jazeera’s Twitter on Thursday, the efforts made so far to stop the crime has been lacking the desired impact because many are gaining from the problem.
