Another is Peace Busari, who was offered for sale on Facebook for $1000 by a Lebanese, Wael Jerro.

Arowolo, in a brief interaction with journalists, said Lebanon was like a hell for her. She cautioned Nigerians, especially girls, who embark on trips in search of greener pastures outside Nigeria.

She said:

“I’m happy being home. Going to Lebanon is like (going to) a hell. Nobody knows that will happen there.

What I experienced in Lebanon, I pray even not for Satan to experience it.”

Arowolo’s employer had accused her of stealing $5,000 and attempting to kill him.
