The Nigerian Senate in Abuja today passed a bill seeking to jail human trafficking offenders for seven years.
The culprits if found guilty are also given a minimum fine option of N1 Million instead of the sentencing.
Vanguard reports that the bill titled, â€œA Bill for an Act to Repeal the Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition) Law Enforcement and Administration Act, 2003â€³, seeks to provide measures against human trafficking in Nigeria.
