Human trafficking is regarded as modern day slavery. The phenomenon has generated a lot of attention among local and international communities. The menace has become a lucrative criminal business and Nigeria has acquired a reputation for being one of the leading African countries in human trafficking with cross-border and internal trafficking. This study examined the effects of human trafficking on Nigeria’s national image. The study adopted political economy theory as enunciated by Karl Marx as its theoretical framework, given the fact that the approach stated that while crime increase in the society is because of the unjust conditions in the society. This research adopted ex-post-facto research design and data was generated through secondary sources. At the end of the investigation, it was discovered that human trafficking has flourished due to the lackluster attitude of law enforcement and a weak legal framework thus, creates bad image for Nigeria. The researcher recommended that the government should provide employment opportunities for youths, and create an encouraging environment for the private sectors to invest.
