Report: Nigeria Listed Among Countries Striving To End Modern Slavery
A report published by Walk Free on Global Slavery Index has placed Nigeria among countries striving to end modern slavery globally.
The report titled ‘Measurement, Action, Freedom’ conducted by over 30 anti-slavery organisations across the world, captures activities of modern slavery in over 180 countries.
In the report, countries are assessed on their ability to identify and support survivors, establish effective criminal justice systems, strengthen coordination mechanisms and be held to account, address underlying risk factors, and clean up government and business supply chains.
