In 2015, Mr. Kehinde worked with law enforcement, religious service providers, and the international community in Moscow to provide assistance to scores of sex trafficking victims. He has personally helped repatriate victims to Nigeria. At his own expense, Mr. Kehinde provided lodging for victims, referred them for medical treatment, and coordinated efforts to secure documentation, as most victims had lost possession of their passports during the course of their exploitation. Overall, he has helped more than 240 Nigerian women escape conditions of modern slavery in Russia.
Despite personal threats to his life, Mr. Kehinde intervened on numerous occasions to secure the release of victims of human trafficking from criminal networks. Several international organizations, anti-trafficking NGOs, and survivors of human trafficking have lauded Mr. Kehinde’s enormous contribution to efforts to combat human trafficking in Russia.
