This high level of unemployment has worsened the rate of child /human trafficking, insecurity such as kidnapping and militancy, high rate of armed roberry, prostiution and school drop outs. As school leavers take to these ilicit acts, it provides ready reasons for poor parents to withdraw thier ward
