Slave Trade in Nigeria

Slave-Trade-in-Nigeria
famine and hunger
decentralized societies
ruined Nigerian economies
destroyed families
The conditions in which Nigerian slaves were put into led to lots of disease and starvation.
The Nigerian slaves were not fed properly, nor were they provided with proper sanitation.
The slave trade caused any leftover Nigerian economies to completely collapse and all the societies were torn apart.
All of the "free" human labor that the Europeans took advantage of ruined Nigerian economies.
It helped the Europeans a lot because they got all of the money, but meanwhile, Nigeria's human labor was being used up without providing any revenue to their economy.
One of the worst things that the slave trade did was tear apart families.
Families were separated and sent thousands of miles away from each other.
Religion, culture, and traditions were all lost as the Nigerian societies became corrupt.
