      AGBU, Osita; AGU, Chinyere Rita. SEX TRAFICKING AND VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN IN NIGERIA. Social Science Research, [S.l.], v. 3, n. 1, feb. 2017. Available at: <http://aphriapub.com/index.php/SSR/article/view/8>.Abstract by authors:This article examines the problem of sex trafficking and violence against children in Nigeria, focusing on the causes and legal remedies available; as often times, the public is ignorant of the existing remedies and the magnitude of the problem. It conceptually clarifies its position on who actually is a child? And what is meant when we discuss sex trafficking as this relates to children. In outlining the legal and policy remedies for the protection of children against sex trafficking and violence, the article outlines and distinguishes between national, regional and international legal frameworks and remedies, and finally discussed and espoused the possible remedies embodied in the existing frameworks in Nigeria. The challenges encountered are also discussed and recommendations proffered for addressing this serious national, as well as global problem of the 21st century.

      Vengono reclutate, ingannate o sfruttate per essere violentate, messe incinta, chiuse dentro delle “fabbriche di bambini” e, alla fine, costrette a vendere i loro figli a coppie sterili o dello stesso sesso, per una cifra di circa 6 mila e 400 dollari.  In certi casi le ragazze vengono anche rapite. Il business si è poi evoluto con un “boom” nel 2008 e con venti “fabbriche” scoperte e chiuse dalla polizia.

Findings show that the acceptance of women trafficking in Nigeria is mostly, portrayed as women' response to an unjust system and gives the impression that prostitution abroad is a survival strategy. According to the paper, recommendations aimed at reviving the moral and spiritual lives of the peole become an essential in creating a society that would foster good habits and provide the basic ecquipment of a wel-liver life.

      Dit onderzoek beoogt een profielschets te maken van de vrouwelijke Nigeriaanse slachtoffers van mensenhandel die in de afgelopen jaren begeleiding en behandeling bij Fier hebben ontvangen. Op die manier wordt nagestreefd een duidelijker beeld te verkrijgen van deze specifieke doelgroep. 23 dossiers zijn gescreend op diverse kenmerken. Er is een onderscheid gemaakt tussen de achtergrond van de vrouwen in Nigeria, periode van mensenhandel, kenmerken die naar voren komen tijdens de periode van opvang in Nederland en eventuele verbanden daartussen, informatie omtrent inconsistente verklaringen en gevoelens rondom een eventuele terugkeer naar Nigeria. De bevindingen zijn ruim uiteengezet, hier en daar aangevuld met de nodige literatuur. Het onderzoek wordt afgesloten met enkele aandachtspunten voor betreffende partijen die te maken hebben met deze doelgroep.

      About 200,000 African children are susceptible to trafficking each year. Children are likely to be trafficked for prostitution, forced and domestic labour and early marriage. Trafficking is considered a violation of the rights of children in several African countries however, the poverty existing in households and the absence of social protection safety nets for vulnerable households, the high profits earned by traffickers for successfully delivering trafficked children to user destinations, and the low conviction rates for trafficking offences across African countries, have caused child trafficking to persist. Moreover, frameworks for addressing the issue of child trafficking are not grounded in the social, cultural, political and economic realities of the people vulnerable to the practice. It is expected that policies for addressing child trafficking should be based on the lived experiences of African children within the contexts of trafficking in their individual countries; rather than uniform frameworks for addressing trafficking or protecting children that are based on western notions of children, childhood, child protection and development. To ensure that policies adopted to combat child trafficking target and are suited to the needs of children and families vulnerable to the practice, this policy brief recommends that African countries adopt a child-centred approach that is built on encouraging the participation of affected children in decision making on trafficking, and reinforces the need for evidence-based research with trafficked children themselves that provides useful information for policy making.

      Human trafficking is largely a form of slavery. The international awareness of the crime has over the years increased. Nigeria is a country of origin, transit and destination for human trafficking. This paper attempts to articulate the potential vulnerability of the victims, appraise the link between trafficking and human immune deficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) pandemic, assess the potency of the Nigeria legal instruments to curb human trafficking and recommend possible solutions. Because of unemployment, victims are frequently lured with promise to get a job with fat pay. Trafficking victims are exposed to unprotected sexual intercourse with multiple partners. They are also hired for pornography and bestiality. These experiences make them vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), HIV/AIDS and other female reproductive health challenges. The Nigeria local laws and the international conventions and protocols, which she is signatory to, all have legal potencies to curb trafficking. Therefore fighting trafficking in Nigeria is all encompassing because it requires a need for synergy of efforts to create public awareness of the crime, address the poverty situation in the country, create employment for the youths, reinforce relevant national laws, organize counseling, rehabilitation and reintegration programme for the victims and allow them access to government subsidized services for HIV/AIDS and other female reproductive health care programmes.

      It has been observed over decades that, poverty forces poor families to send their children to work, which results in a serious problem the world is facing nowadays. Child labour can leave many severe consequences on children and their families. When children work, it does not mean as a standard, they support their families economically, neither all of them get paid for their work since many of them work as bonded labour or as slaves. In addition to that, they face many problems which may cause permanent damage to their childhood.Children usually work to contribute and provide financial support to their families. Their health is often ignored by their parents or they may not be aware about their children’s health. This paper illustrates how both India and Nigeria have adopted laws and regulations to eliminate child labour. However despite all the efforts, child labour and the factors that influence the incidence of child labour continues to be prevalent.The results from this study explain the reasons which forces children to work, poverty. This paper also draws conclusion that governments, societies, and communities should cooperate in a better way with each other to decrease child labour. Possible and innovate solutions and suggestions are arose at the end of this paper.

      The phenomenon of the trafficking of women, especially of young girls and women into exploitative sexual and commercial labor, has recently begun to attract local, national and international attention from world leaders, academics, the mass media, advocacy groups, the clergy and humanity in general. This is against the back drop of the fact that the trafficking of women has a number of far-reaching socio-economic, health and political consequences. Several factors, among them poverty, unemployment, ignorance and family size have been implicated as being reasons why women fall easy preys to the antics of traffickers. From available statistics, we can say that about 500,000 women are brought into the United States of America and Europe yearly for sexual and domestic servitude. Of the over 70,000 African victims of women trafficking, Nigerian women account for 70 percent of those trafficked to Italy alone. Fighting the menace requires a coordinated and concerted push from all stakeholders. This paper presents the causes and consequences of the trafficking of women from Nigeria to America and Europe. Empirical evidence indicates that the activities of traffickers, corrupt embassy officials, the country’s porous borders, poverty, refusal of victims to expose traffickers, delay in prosecuting apprehended culprits and biting youth unemployment have “conspired” to undermine the battle against the illicit trade. The paper makes far-reaching recommendations about how to mitigate the identified obstacles.

      Globally, children of school age are bought, sold and transported away from their homes as commodities. Child trafficking is illegal and extremely harmful as trafficked children are exposed to diverse forms of abuse. The general objective of this study was to examine the socioeconomic implications of child trafficking in Borno State, Nigeria. Using purposive and simple random techniques, data for the study were obtained from 92 respondents representing the immigration, police officers, lawyers, road transport workers, journalists and civil servants who deal directly with child traffickers and trafficked children. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data. The data revealed that trafficked children were obtained from other states, their age range was between five and 10 years and mostly males. It was discovered that force/coercion, trickery and administration of oats were the commonest methods used in child trafficking. Forced labour, prostitution and child soldier were the major purposes for child trafficking while poverty, economic gains, ignorance and insufficient penalties against traffickers were factors enhancing child trafficking in the study area. The study recommended among others investment in human capital, massive public enlightenment campaigns, severe penalties and removal of constraints hindering prosecution of traffickers.
