The Napoli defender in the Italian Serie A has joined many voices around the world in condemning the acts of slavery.

Koulibaly took to Twitter following an investigation by CNN last week where it revealed the troubling extent to which migrants are being auctioned into slavery in the North African country.
The probe prompted a number of footballers such as Pogba who said his prayers go to those suffering from slavery.
"While very happy to be back, my prayers go to those suffering slavery in #Libya. May Allah be by your side and may this cruelty come to an end!," Pogba tweeted.
Apart from the Red Devils anchorman, Cote d'Ivoire's Cheick Doukure also paid tributes to the victirms after scoring for Levante in the Spanish La Liga against Las Palmas.
"All my thoughts are with the slaves in Libya #stopslavery," Doukoure tweeted alongside pictures of a cross-armed celebration.
The Napoli centre back also added his voice, urging black brothers and sisters to stop violating human rights.
