A Fictional X-ray of the Contemporary Society: a Study of Akachi Adimora-Ezeigbo’s Trafficked
AbstractAkachi Adimora-Ezeigbo is one of the contemporary writers who strongly affirm that a true fiction must aptly mirror the world of the writer. This, she vividly demonstrates in her Trafficked. Adimora-Ezeigbo got her inspiration for the fiction from historical and contemporary facts. In our contemporary society, female trafficking is on the increase. Many unpatriotic citizens indulge in the illegal deal which they see as a very lucrative business. Unwary young women are lured into international sex trade with lots of tantalizing promises that would eventually turn to illusions. Trafficking is frowned at in Nigeria, yet people are perpetually trafficked. In this research work, the researcher examines the novel in line with sociological approach so that the ills of human trafficking as it is a case in the contemporary society would be seen. The researcher believes that when the ills are exposed, there would be reformation.
