NAN reported that apart from the salaries, the Oba said the Oba Ewuare Foundation would provide the necessary tools/facilities for those who had gone through the various skills acquisition programmes.

Oba Ewuare, announced this when he hosted to Libyan returnees in his palace, and was further confirmed in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Desmond Agbama and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday.

The Oba of Benin who advised youths to embrace agriculture and other legal businesses to excel, frowned at the attitude of some parents who encouraged illegal migration via sea and desert, stressing that the palace would employ all traditional means to eradicate the scourge.

The Monarch who was also full of praises for steps taken so far to curb the menace of human trafficking and wave of crime in the state, called for concerted efforts of all to win the fight against the inhuman acts.

Earlier, the leader of the returnees, Mr. Vincent David, told Omo N’Oba that they were at the palace to seek assistance for tools to enable them to start up lives after acquiring the necessary skills from the government.

The returnees further praised Oba Ewuare for deploying traditional means, to rescue trafficked victims from their slave masters. Recall that before now, the Benin monarch, Oba Ewuare II, on forced native doctors in Edo state to revoke the curses and oaths placed on the trafficked victims of human trafficking in the state.

After the revocation of curses, the Benin Monarch declared that the trafficked victims were now free from their traffickers and whatever oaths they were placed on. Oba Ewuare II also placed a curse in human traffickers and those aiding and abetting human trafficking in the state.
