Latest survey conducted by NOIPolls Limited has revealed that most Nigerians believe that poverty is the major factor responsible for the rising cases of baby factories and child trafficking in the country.
In a report signed by Operating Officer/Director of Research, NOI Polls, Dr. Bell Ihua and made available to Nigerian Pilot in Abuja, the poll also showed that quick money syndrome, unemployment and stigma against teenage pregnancy also contribute to the ugly business in Nigeria.
“A recent poll conducted by NOIPolls Limited has revealed that about 6 in 10 Nigerians, 63 percent, believe that poverty is the major factor responsible for the rising cases of baby factories and child trafficking in Nigeria.
“This is followed by the quest for quick money, also identified as Get-rich-quick syndrome (23 percent), Unemployment (10 percent), Stigma against teenage pregnancy and Stigma against pregnancy out of wedlock (6 percent) each among other factors cited by Nigerians”.
Furthermore, the poll disclosed that many are aware of the recent cases of baby factories in Nigeria, with the South-East geopolitical zone topping the awareness chart, compared to other regions. And this corroborates previous studies conducted by the United Nations International Children’s Education Fund, UNICEF, which identified Nigeria as one of the major centers for trafficking in children and women.
However, almost all the respondents who were aware of child-trafficking cases had no idea of the existence of baby factories within their locality. But those from the South-East geopolitical zone claimed that they were aware of a baby factory located within their vicinity and indicated readiness to report such cases to the appropriate authorities and to support new laws to eradicate baby factories and child trafficking in Nigeria.
