Okah–Donli said collaboration between the armed forces and NAPTIP would combat human trafficking and unlawful exploitation of children, especially in insurgency-hit communities in the North East.

She described the military as a strong ally in the effort to rid the country of child trafficking.

The director-general also sought the military’s cooperation in the protection of victims of human trafficking.

She described them as vulnerable children and women engaged in dehumanising and exploitative employment by unscrupulous persons and groups.
