26NigerianGirls: FG Asks Italy To Prosecute Culprits In Mysterious Death
The Nigerian government is dissatisfied with the ‘hasty’ burial of 26 young girls who died mysteriously on the Mediterranean sea.
On November 17, 2017, Italy held a mass funeral for the 26, with only two identities known.
The Nigerian government has requested their Italian counterpart to go ahead and prosecute culprits involved in the deaths.
The DG of NAPTIP, Julie Okah-Donli, is seeking full disclosure of their proper identities and nationalities.

Okah-Donli feels slighted that the remains of the girls were buried on November 17, 2017, just a day after Italian Embassy in Nigeria had communicated to her via email that the remains would be buried on November 26, 2017.
“We demand that those who are involved in the gruesome death of these girls be properly identified and prosecuted,” she said.
Okah-Donli also challenged the Italians and other destination countries to equally show good faith by prosecuting their own nationals engaged in the obnoxious trade, adding, “if there is no buyer the trade will die off.”
