Mr Jerro had shared the passport of Ufuoma to ‘Buy and Sell in Lebanon,’ a Facebook group, alongside a post written in Arabic, calling for prospective buyers.

According to her passport data page it was acquired in May 2018, and that the bearer hails from Ibadan, Oyo state. Curiously however Ufuoma is not an Ibadan name.

Several Nigerians had condemned the move, asking the Nigerian government to swiftly wade into the issue and ensure justice is done.

In reaction to the outrage, the NIDCOM boss had disclosed that the country’s mission in Lebanon had reported the issue to the host authorities, adding that “a man hunt was already on.”
