such trafficking activities are becoming on the rising with the state of things and economical and financial state of the country,
not being too favorable for the youth and up coming generation do not see a brighter future ahead so they seek to find greener pastures else where which some times lead to them falling into the hands of fraudulent and scorning persons which tend to use them for a different reason at which they did intended for,
Although some might end up being lucky but it is in a case of 5 in a 100 so i org the government to kindly make jobs available to the youth and set up structures that would eneble the youth keep busy and dis engage from such illegal migration and and avoid being use at poppets in the hands of there captor.
