However, civilization still has a long way to go when it comes to eradicating a lot of barbaric practices that our ancient fathers had practiced.
We have the following die hard barbaric practices still happening in Nigeria;
Female Genital Mutilation
Even some so called civilized and educated parents including few who are outside the shores of Africa are still supporting this act called female circumcision.
It is believed to be a religious obligation that can control the libido of a woman.
Osu - The Igbo caste system
An osu is considered as a person who is owned by the gods. In some parts of the Eastern Nigeria, this practice is still on. The victims are not expected to have any dealing with others.
n some parts of the Eastern Nigeria, when a husband dies, the widow is subjected to an untold suffering.
Maltreatment Of Widows
Everything that is owned by the husband is taken away, leaving her and kids to look for help elsewhere.
In this era where aircraft are flying around the skies, people are still haunting for people who are believed to be witches.
When someone is identified as a witch that is the end of public association with that person. Sometimes, they are killed without allowing the law to take its position in the matter.
Ladies are sold outside their countries for prostitution and other ill vices. Kids are kidnapped and taken to farms to work and child trafficking has equally made it a lucrative business.
