She said young ladies are mostly trafficked, as they would not just be used as domestic maids but also as sex slaves, and those that rebel are either physically assaulted or imprisoned.

Speaking about her moves so far to rescue Sierra Leonean victims in countries across the Globe, Madam Musa stated that she is currently working with some human rights organizations and other Sierra Leoneans to search out for victims and provide them with the necessary logistics required to be repatriated back home.

She called on the government to step-up actions to deter agents relocating people abroad; suggesting further that there should be strict legislations that will regulate the legality of every Sierra Leonean leaving the country.

She noted that those that are not trafficked mostly ended up being in prison or in hiding as most of them reside in those countries illegally.

She called on Sierra Leoneans home not to fall for the flamboyant promises of good jobs these agents make to them; emphasizing that most of these Jobs do not exist.
