ecowasThe ECOWAS commission has commenced plans to establish a regional communication network that will help fight human trafficking and promote child protection in the sub region.

This effort is coming in view of the security crisis in different states in the region which the commission says leave women and children exposed to dangers of deprivation and forced labour.

The ECOWAS Director of Humanitarian and Social Affairs, Dr Dianel Eklu said nations must be made to assume responsibility for the protection of this vulnerable section of their societies, through agenda setting by the media, demands on accountability and promotion of alliances.
