Charles Oputa, also Known as Charly Boy, has vowed to occupy the Libyan embassy in Abuja.

This is coming after a report by CNN revealed an underground slave market where young Africans are sold.

The entertainer said that the protest is aimed at condemning the inhumane treatment meted out to fellow Africans by Libyans.

He said “We are horrified by the reports and footage of hundreds of Africans, including Nigerians, being sold into slavery by slave dealers in Libya as published by CNN and several other international media houses.

“These videos show men, women and children being sold for as little as $400. They also show the dehumanizing conditions in which these victims are kept, beaten, starved and killed.

“It is shocking to find that slave trade, a horrible part of African history which is best confined to our collective past and best studied to avoid a repeat, is being conducted so brazenly in these modern times.

“As part of efforts to condemns these acts of inhumanity, we shall be holding peaceful sit outs in front of the Libyan Embassy in Abuja, on Thursday November 30th, 2017.

 “We urge all members of the public and the media to join us as we seek to promote humanity and the dignity of the African person.”

Following reports of slave trade in Libya, the Senate on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, urged the Federal Government to summon Libyan Ambassador to Nigeria on to clear the air on the auctioning of Nigerians in Libya.
