Information reaching us at Greenbarge Reporters has indicated that a special Presidential panel has been set up to look into the circumstances that led to the death of 26 teenage Nigerian migrant girls in the Mediterranean early this month, November.
A Presidency source told our reporter today, Friday, that the insinuation in some quarters that the government of Muhammadu Buhari had refused to reacted to the death of the girls, believed to have drowned at sea is not true.
The source said that the panel, headed by the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the federation, Abubakar Malami, has as its members, ministers of Women Affairs, Youths, Foreign Affairs; the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and the Diaspora.
It was learnt that the ministry of Foreign Affairs has been closely following the development and has been briefing the Presidency on a regular basis since the tragic incident came to limelight.
The source said that the government panel would also examine the reports of incidents of the sale of Nigerian citizens through slavery and report to the Federal Executive Council (FEC) within a week.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, has since confirmed the setting up of what he called ‘Cabinet Committee’ on the matter.
