An investigation into three cities off the coast of the African country warns that thousands of Ghanaian children are forced to work in the work of the sea.
Child labor and child trafficking in Ghana is a great tragedy. Few people know the problem, but its shores seem like a war zone, "notes the dossier of this Ubelong investigation. "Most of the children on the coast of Ghana work in very dangerous conditions in the fishing industry. They are deprived of their rights, and often are victims of physical abuse and sexual exploitation.
About 168 million children are forced to work. Whether by mafias, by family exploitation or by the simple exercise of surviving in a complicated environment. And this also means abandoning education, a fundamental right to "enjoy a social life and build their own future" according to the Convention on the Rights of the Child ratified by the United Nations High Commissioner in 1989. On the coast of Ghana , These numbers become visible: the traffic of minors to enroll them in fishing can be recorded daily.

“Only God knows what would have happened” if people ate the fake rice, said Lagos customs chief Haruna Mamudu.

Sickeningly, the plastic looks and feels like real rice.  It even seems like rice when it's cooked, as it gets soft and sticky.  There is a slight difference, in that it gives off a slight chemical smell and becomes excessively sticky, but not different enough to guarantee it would have been caught by every restaurant or consumer it passed hands through.
