Niger summons Libya’s ambassador over slave auction

Nigerian Foreign Minister Ibrahim Yakubo said on Sunday that Niger had summoned the Libyan ambassador to Niamey to convey the resentment of his country over the selling of African migrants as slaves in Libya.

Yakubu said on his Twitter account that he told the Libyan diplomat “everything must be implemented to end this disgrace” adding “the perpetrators must be punished”

This comes after a CNN report showed migrants being auctioned in Libya, which incited great sympathy and called for firm reactions in Africa and the United Nations.
