The Governor Of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has inaugurated the state Anti-Human Trafficking task force that he believes would proffer a new set of home-grown solutions to the age-long social problem.

Speaking during the ceremony at the government house in Benin City the state capital, Obaseki said a situation where the state is fast becoming synonymous with human trafficking is no longer acceptable.

He, therefore, charged the task force to urgently redeem the state’s image saying that the Edo people do not want to be associated with the stigma anymore.

He also emphasized the need for the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) as well as other international organsations to join Edo State in the fight against human trafficking.
