‘Human Traffic’ undercover reporter wins prize in Nigeria

Tobore Ovuorie, author of the ‘Undercover in Human Traffic’ report that was published earlier this year in the ZAM Chronicle and in the Nigerian Premium Times, has won a Wole Soyinka Institute award for her brave work. She received accolades for going undercover for several months to expose the deadly dealings of the human trafficking mafia in Nigeria.

Ovuorie was also considered for several international awards in the aftermath of the dangerous assignment during which she witnessed murders and was herself threatened and beaten.
