Ex-beauty queen, Dr. May Ikeora is not just pretty face.She is an academician, entrepreneur and lately she added author to her portfolio. She wrote a book following her doctorate degree and first experience working on human trafficking cases in the United Kingdom especially with Nigerian victims.
On Monday, April 30th, 2018, Dr. May Ikeora launched her book entitled “Bilateral Cooperation and Human Trafficking: Eradicating Modern Slavery between the United Kingdom and Nigeria”. The book presentation was hosted by the British Deputy High Commission through a reception to foster UK/Nigeria Cooperation to tackle Human Trafficking.
Her book launch event was well attended by key stakeholders including NAPTIP, DfiD, Lawyers, Judges, Unilever, Bank MDs, Governors, Commissioners, British National Crime Agency, NGOs and Rep from the Oba’s Palace.
The key message of the book is the need for partnership and international cooperation to stop human trafficking but mostly for the need to address those attitudes, cultures, social ills, laws and policies that foster this modern slavery.
