Heavily pregnant Nigeria woman who was trafficked to Lebanon speaks out
On Monday, Rasheedat Taiwo Saka, an eight-month pregnant Nigerian woman told news reporters that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, she has had no access to food or medical care and was currently locked up in her traffickers' office alongside other victims.
She said that three agents in Nigeria, including a Mr John and a Mr Victor, approached her and presented her the opportunity of working in Lebanon.
The bed we are sleeping on is children's size and I am eight months pregnant. Throughout yesterday I could not sleep because I am in severe pain.
I am hungry too. In fact, so hungry that I had to beg one of the staff in the building to buy food for me yesterday to eat, he bought bread and gave me.
Then we were given five pieces of potatoes to eat; we are more than six in number," she lamented.
