The National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and Other Related Matters (NAPTIP) yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding  with the Network of Civil Society Organizations  against Trafficking, Child Labour and Abuse (NACTAL).

Speaking yesterday at the event  in Abuja , Executive Secretary of  NAPTIP, Mrs Beatrice Jedy-Agba,   said the agency decided to collaborate with NACTAL, the umbrella body that coordinates the activities of NGOs working in the field of human trafficking and child labour in Nigeria because,  'the crime of human trafficking presents an ever changing face in our nation and would need a whole approach to effectively combat it.'

Chairman of NACTAL, Professor Bolaji Awasonoye, said they have staff and members all over the country  and that they were ready to assist NAPTIP in fighting the scourge of human trafficking.

Earlier, President of NACTAL, Ustaz Amin Igwebe, said they would sensitise parents and faith based organizations.
