NOTICE TO ALL HUMAN TRAFFICKING AGENTS BRINGING GIRLS TO MALAYSIA FOR PROSTITUTION.
The attention of the leadership of Urhobo Progressive Union(UPU),Asia has been drawn to a most inhuman practice of forced prostitution,where young girls particularly of urhobo origin are lured to Malaysia(Asia) with the promise of greener pastures and furthering their education most times by some unscrupulous elements that have constituted themselves into a cartel solely for this despicable practice.
For the avoidance of doubt and in the interest of the general public,we want to say human trafficking,be it for forced labor or sexual slavery or commercial sexual exploitation is not part of the Urhobo DNA and culture and this practice is unethical to the dignity and culture of the Urhobo nation. We strongly condemn it.
As a responsible group UPU(Asia) will not hesitate to report to the authorities any case of human trafficking it has knowledge of for proper action and we encourage any present victim in Malaysia to contact UPU so that they can be set free and assisted to settle here legally or be sent back to Nigeria and set up for a better life.
In this regard,we urge our members to dissociate themselves from this unwholesome practice and those involved in it. This is without prejudice to further steps we shall take to preserve the integrity of the Urhobo nation.
To effectively eradicate trafficking of Urhobo daughters for prostitution, i have constituted a five man committee to ensure a total stop to this madness.
Anyone who continues to traffic Urhobo girls to Malaysia for prostitution should consider their investment as a total loss as the union will work with the Nigerian embassy and the authorities in Nigeria to fish out those girls and have them deported back to Nigeria with no room for negotiations or any form of compensation.
The president also appointed a five men committee names

Mr Bright Ukoriagba

state that their appointment is effective immediatly
Olorogun Ejiro Omonemu
