“The Lebanese Government just announced the arrest of Mr. Wael Jerro for onward prosecution against criminal sales of a human, a young Nigerian girl,” she wrote.
Jerro had advertised the victim, Busari Peace, with her Nigerian passport on a Facebook page, ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon.’
He put a price tag of $1,000 on the 30-year-old Ibadan, Oyo State, indigene.
The incident generated outrage on social media, as many Nigerians called for the arrest of the suspect and rescue of Busari.
