Libya slave trade 'scandalous abuses of human rights' – Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has condemned the reported slave trade in Libya describing it as “gross and scandalous abuses of human rights.”
“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” That's according to President Akufo-Addo in a tweet.
Pictures of slave markets and gross abuse of black Africans have awash the social media after CNN uncovered the disturbing human trade activities in the North African country.
The horrible images show some migrants being sold for $400 while others are tortured to death by individuals in "Libyan military wears".
Some Africans have condemned the apparent silence of the continent’s leaders over the development as the AU, ECOWAS and other known regional blocks are yet to comment on the issue.
