Nigerian lady offered for sale on FB in Lebanon, refuse to return home


A Nigerian lady Ariowolo Olamide Temitope, who was offered for sale on FaceBook by a Lebanese has refused to return to Nigeria after been rescued from the hands of her abductors,  Chairman Nigerian Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has said.

She disclosed this during an interaction with the Lebanese Ambassador to Nigeria, Houssan Diab.

Dabiri-Erewa explained that the 31-year-old turned down all entreaties to return back to the country, saying she has secured another job and hence she would prefer staying back in Lebanon.

“Not even the plea by her State government, Oyo state could make her change her mind as she insisted on staying back.

“69 of the 79 Nigerians that were due to return to the country were evacuated last week at the expense of the Lebanese government and Lebanese community in Nigeria.

“The remaining 10 are facing judicial issues bothering on alleged theft and attempted murder. Nine are facing theft case and one facing attempted murder,” Dabiri-Erewa disclosed

 Also, the Lebanese Ambassador said his country has suspended the issuance of domestic visas for Nigerians, adding that the move became necessary as part of the efforts to address the issue raised.
