The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NATIPP) has on Thursday paraded a 43-year-old Pastor, Philip ‘Prince’ Olatunbosun for sexually harassing his 17-year-old house help.

The suspect, who hails from Ondo State, was paraded along four other suspects for human trafficking and rape offences.

The pastor, according to the agency, would sneak into the victim’s room and use his hands to fondle her breasts and other sexual genitals.

NAPTIP’s Director-General, Julie Okah-Donli, who disclosed these at a briefing on Thursday in Abuja, said the move to parade the suspects, is in line with its ‘name and shame’ strategy of ending the twin problems.

She said:

“Three of the cases have to do with rape and sexual violations against minors which are serious offences punishable under the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act (VAPPA) 2015.

“The other two are attempts by two suspects to traffic or smuggle other Nigerians out of the country using fraudulent means contrary to the Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition) Enforcement and Administration Act, 2015.”
