“We have rescued most of them and sent them back to Nigeria, while some others have been sent to school in Malaysia by us. The trend is giving us a bad name in that country. ASWAM is disturbed by the increasing cases of Anambra State women and girls in Malaysia falling victims of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.”

ASWAM is therefore, employing community-based and state-wide campaigns to combat the menace. We are taking the campaigns to families, communities and traditional institutions here in Anambra State.

We are raising awareness among our young people, parents, and the public on the dangers therein. All hands must be on deck in this fight,” he said

He added that the state governor, Willie Obiano, has been alerted and efforts are being made to resensitize their female folks.
