Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), has said that the lady who was put up for sale on Facebook has refused to return to the country.
Recall that 31-year-old Ariowolo Olamide Temitope was offered for sale for $1,000 in Lebanon.
Disclosing this during an interaction with the Lebanese ambassador to Nigeria, Houssan Diab, Dabiri-Erewa said the lady has secured another job in Lebanon.
YEN.com.gh gathers that Oyo state government pleaded with Ariowolo to return home but she refused.
Dabiri-Erewa said: “Not even the plea by her State government, Oyo state could make her change her mind as she insisted on staying back.
“69 of the 79 Nigerians that were due for return to the country were evacuated last week at the expense of the Lebanese government and Lebanese community in Nigeria.
“The remaining 10 are facing judicial issues bothering on alleged theft and attempted murder. Nine are facing theft case and one facing attempted murder."
YEN.com.gh previously reported that the Nigerian lady put up for sale by a Lebanese, Wael Jerro on Facebook, had been rescued.
This was disclosed by the chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa via Twitter on Tuesday, April 28.
According to Dabiri-Erewa who is a former Nigerian federal lawmaker, the young lady is now safely with officials of the Nigerian mission in Beirut.
