She stated, “They (Human traffickers) are worse than drug barons!! And as long as they are walking about freely, innocent young children will continue to be trafficked!”



One of her followers on X, @idealist90, disagreed with her, saying “Traffickers are not worse than drug barons. Both are not different. If you support a drug baron, you are not different from a trafficker himself.”


Mrs Dabiri-Erewa serves in the government of President Bola Tinubu, embroiled in a cocaine trafficking scandal that saw him forfeit $460,000 to the U.S. government in the 90s.


Mr Tinubu’s drug trafficking case re-emerged shortly after he declared interest to contest the presidency in 2022.


In 2022, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois released fresh documents on Mr Tinubu’s encounter with American authorities over allegations of narcotics trafficking and money laundering
