Parents have to be extra careful in monitoring and supervising their children. There has been a rise in the incidence of child kidnapping and trafficking.
Many children have been reported missing and no traces of them have been found. All these problems have been linked to the activities of kidnappers.
Children are kidnapped mainly for purposes of slavery, forced labour and exploitation. Children can also be kidnapped for the purpose of adoption.
According to a research made by the International Labour Organization, it was made known that 1.2 million children are trafficked each year. Children are taken from all around the world and are sold as slaves by human traffickers.
Oheneyere Gifty Aunty, a social media personality, shared on her instagram page how her grandson got kidnapped.
“My grandson was snatched off his bike and pushed into a mini Van on his way to classes”, she narrated.
Fortunately, he was able to slip out of the hands of the kidnappers. A Good Samaritan located him at Kpone, and that is how we got to see him. Madam Gifty explained.
Parents have to be on high alert since the incidence of child trafficking is real and on an increase, she advised.
