President Akufo-Addo has said the alleged slave auction in Libya makes nonsense of the so called solidarity of African nations grouped in the African Union (AU), of which Libya is a member.
Footage of men being auctioned off as slaves in Libya has been met with outrage and the UN Secretary-General has called on the international community to “unite in fighting this scourge”.
The Libyan government has since launched an investigation into the matter.
President Akufo-Addo in a statement on Social media, condemned the slave auctions, reported widely by International media.
“The current slave auctions of Africans in Libya are not only gross and scandalous abuses of human rights, but are also mockeries of the alleged solidarity of African nations grouped in the African Union (AU), of which Libya is a member,” President Akufo-Addo stated.
