Nigerian lady identified as Adetomisin has cried out from an unknown location in Oman, calling for help to be rescued and returned back to the country.
The young lady, who claimed to be from Ondo State, said she was tricked into going to Oman by a travel agent, who initially promised her that she was heading to United States ‘where a job and other good things awaited her’.
In a video which recently surfaced on the internet, the young lady said her agent abandoned her at a office upon arrival at Oman where her passport and other personal items were confiscated.
According to her, she was immediately dispatched to work as domestic help and shop attendant for a man, who subjected her to all forms of abuse including sexual harassment.
Narrating her sad experience, Adetomisin said;
When I left Nigeria, I agreed with my agent that I’ll go work in the United States. After I finished my NCE programme, there was no job and I saw the situation of things, I chose to travel.
My agent said he would help me secure a job in the United States but all of a sudden everything changed and we were brought to Oman, myself and one other lady. I don’t know what happened.
She explained that;
When we got to the airport in Oman, two people came to pick us. They took us to an office, when we got there, they took our passports and everything on us including our phones. They took us to where we would work.
When I got to the workplace, my boss started threatening me and frustrating me. For the first four months that I worked there, he didn’t pay my salary, he didn’t give me any money. When I called my agent, he said he had played his part and none of that was his problem anymore and he has stopped picking my calls ever since.
The lady stated that;
Later, my boss was threatening me and insisting I sleep with him, I told him I couldn’t. My job is very stressful, I wake up as early as 4am and I don’t go back to bed until it’s 1am.
So, he started threatening me that if I don’t do what he wants, he will kill me. I said I was not working again and that they should return me to my country.
According to her, they took her back to the office where she first taken to upon arrival at Oman, saying;
They started shouting at us when we got there. They took us to a room and locked us up for a whole week without food or water. Most of us drank toilet water for a whole week before we were taken back to work.
After they took us back, I have spent one year and two months with him. I am ill. I told my boss to let me go back to my county, he said I can’t go back.
Adetomisin called on Nigerians to help her return to the country, saying;
Please help me, I want to come back home. Nigerians please save me, I am sick and my boss said I can’t go home. My number is 96892544763. Nigerians please save me, don’t let me die in Oman.
This is not the first time that Nigerians especially ladies are trafficked to other countries with promises of a greener pastures but are eventually dehumanised, assaulted and some killed.
Adetomisin’s cry comes barely a week after Nigerians in Diaspora Commission announced that a Nigerian woman named Busari Peace had been rescued after being put up for sale on Facebook by a Lebanese.
The Lebanese named Wael Jerro was first arrested before the lady was rescued by the Nigerian Mission in Beirut, Lebanon.
