The reason I have chosen this audience is because they are the youth and they are armor bearers in the community. They form the perfect niche to spread the message to the younger generation and also leverage it to the older folks in the community. More so, they are passionate and are talented, always looking for opportunities within and outside the country. It will be of immense help to this sub-group to understand the fact that going abroad by visa lottery, marriage, further education, or other means can be a potential trafficking trap. Many do not make it out alive. Many become victims of domestic abuse, which later turn into trafficking. It is succinct to know that my message is not to discourage the Nigerian youths from pursuing their dreams or finding opportunities abroad. However, I will like them to know that, there is help available in case they find themselves or someone they know in a similar situation. – Bukola Oriola
