The Nigerian lady offered for sale on Facebook by a Lebanese, Wael Jerro, has been rescued, Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said on Tuesday.

Mrs Dabiri-Erewa said the victim, Busari Peace, was with the Nigerian Mission in Beirut, Lebanon.

“Update on Nigerian girl put up for sale by a Lebanese, Wael Jerro, on Facebook. She has been rescued and safely with officials of the Nigerian Mission in Beirut,” she tweeted.

Jerro had advertised the victim with her Nigerian passport on a Facebook page, ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon’.

He put a price tag of $1,000 on the 30-year-old Ibadan, Oyo State indigene.

The post generated outrage on the social media, as many Nigerians called for the arrest of the suspect and rescue of Busari.

Dabiri-Erewa had earlier announced the arrest of the suspect by the Lebanese government, whom she said also condemned the act.
