Subsequently, he called the attention of security operatives in the airport, whom he said were unbothered about the situation.

He tweeted: “Today, at Aminu Kano International Airport & I came across a situation. A Chinese national was in the company of two teenagers (not older than 13 years) & they were boarding to Lagos. To my surprise, NOBODY in the Airport seems to bother.

“I felt uncomfortable with the whole thing, having heard a lot about how girls are being trafficked & I went to the Airport Security to make my observations. The man & two teenagers have already been checked in. I insisted that the security there should check what was going on.

“The way they were unbothered was worrisome & I threatened that I will report them if they refuse to take action. A lady there checked & the guy said the girls’ there had their brother working for him in Lagos & he is taking the girls to join the brother to work for him.

“This still doesn’t hold water & I insisted that they liaise with the Airport Security in Lagos to keep the girls & ask the brother to come pick them instead of allowing them go with the Chinese guy.

“This is the flight in question & I hope you’d follow this and similar cases up.”

As of press time, When WikkiTimes contacted the user, he wasn’t available to respond. 

Also, a text message sent to the airport had not been responded to at press time.
