Thirty year-old Nigerian lady, Busari Peace, who was put up for sale online recently by a Lebanese man, Wael Jerro, has been rescued.
Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, shared the update on Twitter, saying that Peace is currently at the Nigerian High Commission in Beirut.
”Update on Nigerian girl put up for sale by a Lebanese, Wael Jerro on Facebook. She has been rescued and safely with officials of the Nigerian Mission in Beirut. More updates later” she wrote
There was outrage when Jerro put up a post on a Facebook page – ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon’, advertising Busari with her Nigerian passport. He put a price tag of $1,000 on the Nigerian woman who is from Oyo State. Jerro has since been arrested.
