NAPTIP Collaborates with Hajj Commission to Fight Human Trafficking

Over the course of his career as a sales and marketing executive, Benoy Berry has established himself as a business leader in Nigeria. Aside from his work as the chairman and chief executive officer of Contec Global, Benoy Berry remains firmly dedicated to supporting the fight against human trafficking. He is a patron of the National Anti-Human Trafficking Campaign, a project of the National Agency for Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and Other Related Matters (NAPTIP) in Nigeria.

In addition to sponsoring its own anti-human trafficking initiatives, NAPTIP regularly collaborates with like-minded organizations in Nigeria and beyond. In July 2015, NAPTIP joined forces with the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria to eliminate human trafficking and illegal stay after Hajj, the annual religious pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. In particular, the two organizations targeted Nigerians who traffic people to Saudi Arabia for the purposes of prostitution, begging, and other offenses. The organizations also identified certain loopholes in previous Hajj operations and worked to close them in an efficient manner.
