This research work has conducted to find out the socio cultural practices of people in Katsina State that encourage child abuse. The study focused on the type of child abuse, perpetrators, and implications of child abuse to the society, victims and the families. The study adopted structural functionalist Theory. This approach sees society as a complex system whose distinct parts work together to produce stability, harmony and solidarity. The study was conducted in three senatorial districts of Katsina state namely: Funtua, Katsina and Daura senatorial Districts. Data was obtained through quantitative method and qualitative method (in-depth interview). The research adopted simple random sampling method in selection of respondents. One hundred and fifty questionnaires were administered in the selected areas of three senatorial zones while nine key informants were selected for in-depth interview: three for each senatorial zones while nine key informants were selected for in-depth interview: three for each senatorial district. The key informants used for the study were Malams, Social workers, and Hospital Staff. The data collected through questionnaire were subjected to statistical package for social science SPSS for analysis while data collected through the In-depth interview were transcribed. The study revealed that beating, sparking, denial of food and sexual abuses are the most common types of child abuse in Katsina state. While street hawking, early child marriage, physical training, tribal marks and circumcision are some of the socio cultural practices that encourage child abuse in Katsina State and mostly perpetrated by parents and care givers which resulted in serious health related problems and crimes. The study suggested measures like public enlightenment, job creation and legislation to control the menace of child abuse in Katsina State.




1.1  Background to the Study

One of the most celebrated things in the world of mankind is marriage which has as one of its functions, reproduction. It is the wish and prayers of each and every spouse, their family and well-wishers to have the priceless gift of God to human kind, children. Having children is a thing of joy especially in African (Daily Trust, 2009). But despite the much celebration and thanksgiving for giving birth to a child, the children are abused in such a manner that one wonders if the abusers do not know the value of chidren. To this end, Gil (2006) defines child abuse as “the intentional, non-accidental act of omission on the part of parents or other caretakers, aimed at hurting, injuring or destroying that child”.

The greatest dream of almost every society in the contemporary world is to equip children for a healthy future so that they can be useful members of the society. This explains the reason why the international community is so much concerned about the issue of protecting children‟s rights (Onipe, 2004). An aspect of violence against human kind that has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years is the issue of child abuse. This practice does not only refer to the sparking and other physical punishments typically meted out to children by their parents. It means much more serious acts, such as subjecting children to vicious beating sometimes severe enough to break their bones, tying them up or locking them for hours or burning them with cigarettes or forcing them to put their hands on a hot stove, cutting their bodies with blade, using pepper on their sexual organs and even in extreme cases, killing them (Dietrich, 1983).

I actually googled and saw about iproject master, copied the number and contacted them through WhatsApp to ask for the availability of the material and to my luck they have it. So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic. I was really scared before making the payment cause I’ve been scammed twice, they attended so well to me and that made me trust the process and made the payment and provided them with proof, I got my material in less than 10minutes
