Nigerian Woman Put Up For Sale In Lebanon Refuses To Return Home

A 30 year old Nigerian woman, Peace Ufuoma Busari, who was advertised for sale on Facebook in Lebanon has refused to return home, according to the head of Nigeria’s diaspora commission.

Ufuoma was sold for $1,000 (£793) before she was rescued by the Lebanese authorities and taken to the Nigerian embassy in Beirut.

The advert caused a whoop in Nigeria and the man suspected to be in the advert has been arrested.

She now says she has found another job in Lebanon.

Head of the commission Abike Dabiri-Erewa said she tried to convince to return home home but she refused.

“Even the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) of Oyo State, where she is from, spoke to her. We just hope that Nigerians going to work in Lebanon will be properly treated and not treated as slaves,” Ms Dabiri-Erewa said.

She said the Lebanese government had brought back 69 out of 79 Nigerians who were in Lebanon. The 69 are currently in quarantine.
The Lebanese embassy stopped issuing visas to Nigerians seeking domestic work in Lebanon after the incident.
