+See Video on details of slave trading in Libya

President Akufo-Addo has condemned the maltreatment and human-selling of African migrants currently ongoing in Libya.

Pictures of slave markets and gross abuse of black Africans are awash on social media after CNN uncovered the fledging human trade in the North African country.

The horrible images show some migrants being sold for $400 while others are tortured to death by individuals in Libyan military wears.

Some Africans have condemned the apparent silence of the continent’s leaders over the development as the AU, ECOWAS and other known regional blocks are yet to comment on the issue.

Tweeting on the matter Tuesday, President Akufo-Addo said the incident is undermining the cohesion campaign being canvassed by the leaders on the continent.


“The current slave auctions of Africans in Libya are not only gross and scandalous abuses of human rights, but are also mockeries of the alleged solidarity of African nations grouped in the African Union (AU), of which Libya is a member”.
