Then you will weep for humanity. As baby’s farming syndicates have strong network and background voice, to beats your imagination. Some may even be operating next door to you without you knowing, and I wonder how their antics always beat security personnel for that long. This business is spinning and more people are rolling into it everyday. In this market, demand is always higher than supply. There is ready made market,ready cash transfer and deposit is no big deal. Making money by farming babies for sales in Nigeria is a serious illegal business meant for those who can pay the highest. In hospitals, the case is same as body parts of patients are missing unnecessarily. These parts are trafficked for transplanting abroad, and are for those who can pay bills. So many things are happening these days that I can no longer talk.
They can pay to have their way for almost all: pay to be blank most times to security lenses, bend rules to their favor and escape the laws from being enforced on them. They are the ones our society respects and fear. To the extent that everyday citizens are intimidated if they attempt to volunteer information to security agencies, they are out rightly sold out. You can report these clique to authorities. Reporting them to security would be the highest risk anyone could do or think of. So reflect and think who really cares about what goes on in our local communities for community policing? That’s how we got it wrong all the other times.
In Africa, Nigeria is profiled as Africa baby’s trade capital and have potentials to service global market abundantly. Nigeria’s babies have international market acceptability and these babies are bought and brought abroad solely to become slaves. They grow up to live as slaves workers in factories, mining and other laborious works among others. I am of the strong view that slave trade has not ended, it is still ongoing in disguise. Don’t doubt me.
My pain is that Africans are the ones still selling Africans as commodities to Europe and America, like in the days of old. So when will Africa learn?
The young man’s share per impregnated girl is N50, 000 ie close to $100. In common parlance, - the more girl produces babies the more money she makes. Equally, this also applies to the man too. As if this is not madness! Babies are sold into reasons you can't understand and into slavery at birth, majority are sold to be used for rituals as Africans still believes that crunching babies into powdered form is the best form of voodoo. I am imagining when these babies cries before they are killed, if those cries and blood will not affect the future of Africa.
In some cases, parents gives flimsy excuses that poverty is number one thing that made them vulnerable. I was speechless listening to them and almost lost myself. Then I remembered the wisdom of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, GOAL 1 - which is to eradicate extreme poverty for all people everywhere. And I know we can do something about it. In reality, do you think poverty can drive these girls into this? I am lost and only recovering. Lost at our morals and social values especially for X generation. Lost for what holds for future. So I ask again, parents do you know where your daughters are?
Well I still don't understand. I feel something is wrong somewhere. We have to do something about these excuses and save babies from all this. We have to do something definite to save the future. Family values and morals and respect for life are eroded. We all have a role to play. Teach morals, build characters and give value to children so that they can grow as we grew.. Let’s start it now.
