Swiss government, IOM, NAPTIP launch blue bus project

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), in collaboration with the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), launched a new project to raise awareness of the scourge of human trafficking among populations at risk in migration prone areas across the country. 

The 23 March launch marked the tenth anniversary of the Nigeria–Switzerland Migration Partnership.

The partnership between the two countries began in February 2011 and has so far successfully implemented close to 50 projects dedicated to migration and border management, fighting trafficking in persons, and voluntary return and reintegration.

Since 2017, IOM has assisted the voluntary return and reintegration of more than 21,500 Nigerian migrants, of which approximately 15 per cent are victims of trafficking from Libya, Mali, Europe and the Middle East, among others.
