When Lord Mansfield, the then Chief Justice of England gave his popular judgment in 1772 ruling that it was illegal to keep slaves and America endorsed this illegality in 1865, men of conscience and Nature herself heaved a sigh of relief. This nefarious activity of slave-trade and slavery, a major factor for Black-African Diaspora still persists in different hues today. One of these is human trafficking packaged in a camouflage of irresistible flavour for the youth. Akachi Admora-Ezeigbo in a captivating narrative laden with figures, songs, series of flashback and tales depicts the social reality of human trafficking. She employs a simple and intriguing language enriched with resources of literary ingredients of descriptive strategy and oral devices to portray the deceit, inhumanity, dismal life and degradation associated with 21st Century “Female-Slave-Trade” in her Trafficked. Using Nneoma as the protagonist she raises and unveils a network of related contemporary social issues which form causative elements for such horrific torture and debasement. This work along with Ezeigbo’s resources of literary prowess makes a modest attempt at exploring her ingenuity, eloquence and window of escape provided to combat this violence unleashed on woman – kind of this century.
