NAPTIP cautions media partners on fake news, hate content



The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) has cautioned its media partners to beware of fake news and hate content against the agency.

The Head, Press and Public Relations Unit of the agency, Mrs Stella Nezan, made this known to the Nigeria News Agency on Wednesday in Abuja in a statement.

“The attention of the agency has been drawn to series of fabricated and concocted reports targeted at damaging the image of the organisation and its staff.

“Of great concern to the agency is the content of such petitions authored by some faceless individuals with direct attack on the person of the Director General, Mrs Julie Okah – Donli.

“Such reports which are padded with unverified insinuations and personal hearsay are peddled through various social media platforms to depict hate speech,’’ Nezan said.

She said that the agency would not be moved by the concocted report and would continue to do its work as the foremost counter-trafficking agency as the mandate given to it by Nigerians.

She said that the fight against human trafficking had the tendency of fighting back, and that the agency shall continue to welcome stakeholders and partners who were willing to work with it to end the scourge of human traffic king in Nigeria.
