The incident generated outrage on social media, as many Nigerians called for the arrest of the suspect and rescue of Busari.
Meanwhile, investigations reveal that the suspect, Jerro, resides in Beirut, Lebanon.
The suspect wrote in Arabic, “Domestic worker from Nigeria for sale with new legal documents. She’s 30 years old, she’s very active and very clean. Price: $1,000.”
The passport, which she acquired in May 2018, indicated that she hails from Ibadan, Oyo State.
An Instagram user, @thereneeabisaad, urged the Nigerian government to save the victim; adding that she might have been trafficked.
The digital marketer as well as web designer, while calling out Jerro; described his action as inhuman.
“I have reported to the Nigerian embassy. Please do the same; if you know anyone in the Nigerian embassy in Lebanon,” she added.
1st News observed that Jerro, who studied at the Arab Open University, had deleted the Facebook page with which he put up the post.
But this was not before some users took his snapshot; and also that of his family members.
