Unic Press UK: Reacting to the numerous videos on the Internet, showing men, women and children being sold at slave markets in Libya for as little as $400.00, many Nigerians gathered outside the United Nations office in Lagos, Nigeria, protesting the ongoing slave trade, especially the slave markets in Libya.
BBC News reported that one Ayinke Adefemi, who is a member of the Pan-African Consciousness Renaissance that were part of the protesters, said: “The communal culture that we Africans used to have is dead.”
Last month, a coalition of civil society groups also protested at the at the Libyan Embassy in Abuja, calling on the Libyan national authorities to end the inhuman treatment of Nigerians and other Africans in Libya.
Revelations on the slave markets in Libya became widespread after the CNN published/aired a report ‘People for sale: Where lives are auctioned for $400′ See: http://edition.cnn.com/2017/11/14/africa/libya-migrant-auctions/index.html

Since news broke about slave trade in Libya;
*Eiffel Tower hasn't gone dark
*Major Foreign bodies haven't said much.
*No worldwide hashtag is actually trending
*No fancy facebook profile pic frame.
They've left us to deal with our issues alone.
-correct me if I'm wrong-
