Review of legislation and policies in Nigeria on Human Trafficking and Forced Labour

An essential part of the Action Programme against Trafficking and Forced Labour in West Africa (PATWA) is to advocate for a legislative and policy framework in Nigeria and Ghana that enables the government and other national stakeholders to effectively combat trafficking in men, women and children for purposes of labour or sexual exploitation.

This review examines national legislation related to trafficking, forced labour and migration in
Nigeria, regional and bi- lateral agreements on migration and/or repatriation that Nigeria has entered
into and prosecutions of persons accused of the crime of trafficking.
