“We will pay for the repatriation of all Oyo State indigenes who have been confirmed to have been trafficked to Lebanon. Please put all necessary plans in place to bring them back, ‘’said Makinde in the statement.

“I understand that some well-meaning individuals and groups have made some donations to some of the victims, let them use such donations as pocket money.

“This state will pay for their flights and the fees requested to conduct COVID-19 tests on each of them,” Makinde said in response to the brief by the SSA Diaspora Matters.

According to the statement, the governor was informed that a number of Oyo State indigenes had been discovered to be irregular migrants who were trafficked into apparent modern-day slavery in Lebanon.

The statement said that while 40 of such victims have been screened and ready for the journey back home, more victims were still being discovered.

It added that her office had been working closely with Lebanese authorities to identify Oyo State indigenes stranded in Lebanon, adding that the 40 victims already screened would be returning home this month.

“We are expecting them back on a special flight on August 12. The government of Engineer Seyi Makinde has shown a renewed commitment to the welfare of our people in the diaspora and we are pleased with that.

“Since the government found out that we have some victims of human trafficking, who are stranded in Lebanon, we have stepped in.

“On the 11th of July, we received 11 victims and they are going through rehabilitation with the social workers in the Ministry of Women Affairs. The state has given commitment that they will all be empowered.

“The same thing will happen to those we are expecting from the flight from Lebanon this August, once they have been cleared.”
