Abstract

Trafficking in human beings has become a universal problem that affects every single nation. This have become an issue of concern for many international and national organizations, government and interest groups with political, social and economic consequences. Despite the increasing body of research on the coverage of human trafficking by the media, there is paucity of study on how human trafficking stories are covered within the Nigerian context. The objectives, therefore, are to: find out the frequency of newspaper coverage given to human trafficking stories by the selected newspapers; the prominence accorded to the reports on human trafficking; the patterns of coverage used to sensitize the society about the ills of human trafficking; identify the dominant form of human trafficking.
