Taming child trafficking in Nigeria

SUNDAY TRIBUNE "According to Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of the sixth edition; a child is a young human being who is not yet an adult. Trafficking is also defined as an act of buying and selling things illegally. So, child trafficking is an inhuman act where children are being used unjustly as objects of business transaction and making profit by the greedy people that carry out this act. The children who fall victim of child trafficking usually come from very poor parents who are living mostly in rural areas. Such parents have been easily deceived by the traffickers who promise to take their children to school either abroad or in the urban cities because of the general thinking of the villagers that there are gold, silver, and diamonds scattered on the streets of the big city. Probably out of greediness they willingly give out their children with the prospect of getting rich through them."
