TRADITIONAL FATHER! Oba of Benin to pay Libya returnees three months salaries

The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, has placed each returnees from Libya, on three months salaries.

This was made known in a statement issued on Thursday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Desmond Agbama, who said the monarch made the disclosure when he hosted Libyan returnees in his palace.

The statement said the monarch frowned at the attitude of some parents who encouraged illegal migration via sea and desert, stressing that the palace would employ all traditional means to eradicate the scourge.

Oba Ewuare, who was full of praises for ancestors and for steps taken so far to curb the menace of human trafficking and wave of crime in the state, called for concerted efforts of all to win the fight against the inhuman acts.

Earlier, the leader of the returnees, Mr Vincent David, told Omo N’Oba that they were at the palace to seek assistance for tools to start up their lives after acquiring the necessary skills from the government.

The returnees further praised Oba Ewuare for deploying traditional means to rescue trafficked victims from their slave masters.

The monarch further promised to assist all the trafficked victims to start better lives.
