NACTAL Nigeria Commences Four-Day Countering Trafficking In Persons (CTIP) Training

  • To promote synergy among security agencies
  • To improve technical know-how of security officers

The Network Against Child Trafficking, Abuse and Labour (NACTAL) NACTAL Nigeria has started a 4-day capacity building workshop for Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs).

The workshop was under its Strengthening Civic Advocacy for Local Engagement(SCALE) Project implemented by Palladium for security personnel in Abuja with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

In a statement sighted by the DNNigeria, the participants for the training were drawn from the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and Other Related Matters (NAPTIP) in Bauchi, Sokoto and FCT.

It said, “The training which recorded 40 participants (18 female and 22 male; 4 youths and 36 adults) is aimed at enhancing the capacity of Security Agencies personnel on survivor/traffickers’ identification, improve the technical know-how of the law enforcement officers on TIP investigation, strengthen the capacity of the Security Agencies personnel in the prevention, protection, and prosecution of TIP cases, and promote synergy among security agencies in combatting the trafficking of persons in Nigeria through information sharing, referral, linkages and experience sharing.

“While the very enthusiastic participants share their intervention experiences, it is hoped that the 4-days training will record a milestone of improved collaborative efforts in tackling Trafficking in Persons (TIP) issues in Nigeria.”
