Child Trafficking In Nigeria by Afanna1: 6:13am On Jul 30, 2011
How child trafficking network operates in South East

On July 30, 2011 · In Just Human
By Uduma Kalu


Child Trafficking in the Eastern part of Nigeria is a lucrative trade. In Nigeria, human trafficking ranks the third most common crime after financial fraud and drug trafficking. At least 10 children are sold every day across the country, according to the UN. Globally, the traffickers earn $33 billion yearly.

In Nigeria, the traffickers are seldom caught, and even when they are, they easily buy their way out. It is rampant in Nigeria but prevalent in the Eastern part of the country, especially child trafficking.

In Surulere Lagos, a childless Yoruba lady, married for five years, facing family discomforts, was told by her lady friend of a baby factory in Aba, Abia state.

The lady went to Aba, met the owners of the baby market and was asked to pay N2m for a male child. She was also given some medicines which made her look pregnant. Her husband thought she was pregnant. Towards the time of delivery, she told her husband she was travelling abroad to have the baby. But she went to Aba where a baby boy was handed over to her after paying the full amount. She returned to Lagos and lives with her husband with the child. The man thinks the boy is his.

Lagos baby factories


Why did she go to far away Aba? In Janet Fajemigbesin Street, in Amuwo Odofin, behind old Durbar Hotel-near Festac, Lagos, teen ladies charge N150,000 and N200,000 per baby. Twins sell for N450,000. They boys who impregnate the girls are paid N10,000 to N20,000. In Lekki, one Mrs. Theresa Marques, 84, owner of an orphanage sold babies for N100,000, N200,000.

Seannet: Shame on you for your silly comments! Get your head out of looking at everything from tribalism and racism, what do you gain? You are educated (I believe), get a life and stop!

@Post: It is a problem of societal values and backwardness of the Nigerian society foisted by its past leaders and perpetuated by its present crop of leaders! Look, it is painful to anyone not to be able to give birth but how can this problem be solved? Are there ways that it is being solved elsewhere? Yes! Does Nigeria need any new scientific or technological research to make it possible? Not at all! In better societies, to start with, their values are such that you can even chose not to have kids and no one cares! But if you choose to have, what are the options if you don't want to adopt? You can have a surrogate mother and it is perfectly legal and regulated and you will have kids with Fluid donated by the man! If the problem is the man and the woman is fertile, artificial insemination is the way to go and it is perfectly legal! I have met a lady who has a child and that child never had a "father" because she got the Fluid from a Fluid bank and she told me that much! When Nigeria's so called leaders begin to think on how to serve their people, things like this will die a natural death. Otherwise, everyone will seek to help themselves which further perpetuates the lawlessness we have in Nigeria.

Look being yoruba or Northerner or igbo is not material here

it is the act of insulting groups of people that is material. I believe even as young as you are, you can understand that
Re: Child Trafficking In Nigeria by ektbear: 5:09pm On Jul 30, 2011
Chyz*:

I don't doubt that. this is the problem with using state names as a surrogate for ethnicity, I guess. But I suppose that most readers should be able to pick up on what I mean from context.
Re: Child Trafficking In Nigeria by EkoIle1: 5:18pm On Jul 30, 2011
But how do you move from kidnapping and killing your own people for money and also kidnapping your own school kids for money to trafficking little babies for money?


Sometimes really I wonder about ibo people. Why are they so blessed with too many anti social vices and issues, it's like they are still kicking it in the stone age.
Re: Child Trafficking In Nigeria by Horus(m): 5:22pm On Jul 30, 2011
Buying or selling of babies is illegal in Nigeria and can carry a 14-year jail term.

14-year is not enough, it should be at least 30 years jail term.
Re: Child Trafficking In Nigeria by bashr4: 5:38pm On Jul 30, 2011
anybody that believes affanna is ijaw of even from the east is a fool.
Re: Child Trafficking In Nigeria by aljharem3: 5:42pm On Jul 30, 2011

Re: Child Trafficking In Nigeria by Nobody: 5:49pm On Jul 30, 2011
Nawa o! The report actualy indicted both igbo and yoruba, though igbo more! The factories were in Lagos as well as east and im sure if Ibadan and Abeokuta is well combed more baby factry will be found!
