Reports from Joy FM reveal that Issaka Abdul Mumin has demanded a huge amount of cash to help him achieve his dreams.

"We all didn't know how he got there. He said he needed 72,000 but I don't know whether in Libyan currency. I want my brother to come back home, there is no way he can travel on the boat and continue. He will die," his brother, Tufic Abdul Mumin, cried out.

So far, it remains unknown if the foreign affairs minister has succeeded in locating the whereabouts of the young boy.

Libya has come under a lot of international scrutinies after footage of men being sold off as slaves in the country surfaced in the media.

Reports suggest that the men, marketed as “big strong boys for farm work”, are sold for $400 while others are tortured to death by individuals in Libyan military wears.

This has been met with a lot of condemnations with protests erupting in Paris and other cities, across the world.
