The NSCDC Commandant, Bello Ale, disclosed this on Tuesday in Ilorin while handing over Bright, who returned in the early hours of Tuesday, to the President of Eruku Progressive Union, Mr Shola Daniels.

Ale said the repatriation of Bright was one of the successes recorded by the security agency in its investigation of alleged slavery involving Nigerian women.

He acknowledged, however, that the repatriation was achieved through the Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission, and an NGO, Phemnick Life Support.

The commandant said the presence of the 27 Nigerian women in Lebanon was revealed in a document retrieved from three suspects behind their ordeals. Among the victims were Ms Omolola Ajayi and Mrs Gloria Bright, whose videos as slaves went viral.

He said the three suspects arrested were a Lebanese, Wasit Muhammad, 63 years; Adetunji Sanusi, 33 years; and a lawyer, Tunde Awwal, 27 years.
