The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP),  has condemned the obscene pictures of a four-year girl,  shared by an Edo-based father on social media.

The father, who posted different obsene pictures of his daughter wrote:  ” “My daughter will grow to love the lifestyle.”

Many social media users had called on NAPTIP and the police,  seeking the arrest of the man.
