An uncle has been jailed for defiling his sister’s daughter. He had promised to take the girl and support her in school but ended up turning her into a sex machine.
The incident happened in Ghana and came to public notice at a human rights training program.
Ghana has been a flash point in which the perpetrators used in trafficking people all in the name of corrupt officials in our borders.
This has been a wake up call for all of us to take serious note about the current situation happening in Sub Sahara Africa.
Speaking in an interview with an expert on human rights and the Director of Sub Sahara Africa of the Engaged Now Africa, said that, alot of people do not have much knowledge about human trafficking and that’s what is causing a lot of harm nowadays.
According to him, in the Year 2021, basic knowledge about human trafficking was very low so we took up on ourselves to educate the individuals about human trafficking.
He said experts and other companies came together as one and they are educating the youth and elders about human trafficking.
Further more, he advised parents to investigate more when people decide to take their children abroad to live or work there.
Again, he advised the youth to find something to in the country rather than travelling abroad to fine jobs and putting their lives in danger.
This has been happening day to day activities by these scrupulous individuals selling and exploiting the victims into sexual harassment and abuse.
Mr. Komla warned parents and the youth to careful about that, someone said he is taken to do a job or take he or she to without cross checking or investigating it deeply.
He appealed that if he or she find themselves in this the first point of call is ILO, the Embassies and agencies direct involved to see if indeed it is truly genuine or not.
The Engaged Now Africa, Street Aid, Social Welfare and security agencies has been able to rescue ten people from trafficking and exploitation of sex worker’s in Ghana, for which four are Nigeria nationals.
