She said she was privileged to reside in the cities, and that it was due to the kind of initiatives bodies like the EU, NAPTIM, UNODC and others organises are engaged in.

“They have showed commitment in addressing the menace of trafficking in the cities, but the rural children are lagging behind in knowledge, so I appeal to the FG and other private bodies to reach out to the people in such hard to reach areas in the states.

“They should use any medium of communication to drive the message, especially in their local dialect to address the topic of human trafficking in the country,’’ she said.


She also explained that it was the knowledge she acquired that she used to win the essay,in line with her dreams.

“I appeal to the government to take care of  victims of human trafficking, widows and children including victims of human trafficking.


“And also create a vocational centre  where different trades could be empowered for training their children,’’ Okezieokafor said.

Hadi Hauwa,who came second in the competition from GSS Gwarimpa, who is 16 year old in SS 3, told NAN that the effort made by the EU was vital in educating school children on human trafficking.

“It is an opportunity for me and am glad I participated in the essay competition and would want to appreciate all the people who supported me.


“Especially my English teacher who saw me through.

“Human trafficking as we all know is the recruitment, transfer and abhorring of persons by means of threat or force or other forms of abduction for the purpose of exploitation,’’ she added.
