Unreported World S16E07 - Nigeria: Child Brides, Broken Lives
Channel 4 - 2 January 2009
This week's Unreported World reveals the devastating effects of child marriage and pregnancy in Nigeria, where nearly half of all girls in the country's northern states are married by the age of 15, often to much older men. Nigeria has one of the highest rates of child marriage and pregnancy in the world and the federal government has tried to ban marriage under the age of 18 by passing the Child Rights Act in 2003. However, five years later, only one northern state has adopted the act and even then replaced the age of 18 with "puberty".
Reporter Ramita Navai investigates why there has been resistance to outlawing child marriage and what it has meant for thousands of young girls.
NB: Originally scheduled for broadcast on 28 November 2008, but the transmission was postponed because of extended Channel 4 news coverage of the Mumbai terrorist attacks.
