She said the agency was collaborating with relevant stakeholders, including sports to create awareness against human trafficking.

“We are here at this Golf tournament to further create awareness against human trafficking.

“We know a lot of our youths love sports and traffickers take advantage of it.

“That is why we are using sports such as golf, football and so on to create awareness against it because prevention is better cure, ” she said.

She urged Nigerian youth interested in sports to always follow the right agent and agency when travelling abroad for sports events.
