A call for help: Woman lured into modern-day slavery seeks to return home
Every year, a lot of Nigerians seek greener pasture in other countries of the world. The dream to make it outside the shores of the country and lift their families out of poverty has driven so many ignorantly into the hands of human traffickers who disguise as travel agents.
This is exactly the case of Teniola, who decided to travel to Oman to hustle for a better life for her and her son.
Teniola’s case is quite pathetic as her husband dumped her and her son to marry another woman. Teni saw a very bleak future for her in Nigeria due to the so many failed businesses she ventured into. Her only hope was to go to Oman when she was presented with the opportunity, leaving her only son with her mother.
Teniola, in a video shared on Youtube narrates her awful experience in the hands of her employers who turned her into a slave.

According to her, she has worked for over a year with three different employers but no payments to show for it. She was beaten on several occasions by her employer, made to work without proper rest. She’s presently indisposed and does not have access to proper healthcare.
Teniola is calling on kind-hearted people to help return her back home to her son. All she requires is to purchase a ticket back to Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the United Nations has defined human trafficking as: “The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.”
