Slavery in Libya

If you have been following the news, then you probably already heard of the inhumane act of human trafficking going on in Libya. The news had been on for weeks now but it caught major fire this week when CNN published an exclusive report.

The report birthed the #NoToSlavery hashtag on Twitter and Instagram and the "No to Slavery in Libya" campaign on Facebook.

Here are a few reactions from Nigerians

Fix Nigeria!

It's really sad that the company had to lay off so many people especially at this time of the year.
