This study was carried out to investigate the trends of human trafficking among women in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State. To achieve this objective, four research questions and two research hypotheses were formulated to guide this study. The data was collected from primary sources. The primary data was collected with the help of a well-structured questionnaire administered to Two Hundred and Eight thousand inhabitants of Oredo Local Government of Edo State, Nigeria. The data collected were analyzed with tables and simple percentages to analyze the research questions and to test the research hypothesis. The research findings showed that the major causes of trafficking among women in Oredo are competition and rivalry as well as polygamy and too many children, while the use of force, abduction and deception was identified as ways through which the perpetrators of human trafficking carry out their business. Thus, the study recommended that Parents should endeavor to monitor their children’s activities especially when they are being fostered by relatives, also, the Government of Nigeria should ensure a friendly and humane political economy as existing social security programmes are totally inadequate, thereby compelling citizens to take to engage in illegal acts for survival.
