NAPTIP Highlights Importance of Law Enforcement Collaboration

Dr. Benoy Berry leads an international company that specializes in systems-based solutions in his role as CEO and chairman of Continental Transfer Technique Limited. A dedicated philanthropist, Dr. Benoy Berry also contributes to initiatives against human trafficking with the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) in Nigeria.

In a press release, NAPTIP announced that its director general Beatrice Jedy-Agba recently emphasized that crime prevention in Nigeria is dependent upon effective collaboration between security agencies. Jedy-Agba made this statement during an operational assessment presentation attended by delegates from consorting entities, including the European Union, the United Nations Office on Drug and Crimes, and the Nigerian Immigration Service.

According to Jedy-Agba, the operational assessment that was performed by independent consultants confirmed the effectiveness of NAPTIP’s structure, but also highlighted the organization’s inability to prosecute some trafficking-related offenses due to legal restrictions. Jedy-Agba asserted that NAPTIP must continue working with other law enforcement agencies to ensure that crimes related to human trafficking are fully addressed.
