An Anglican Church in Port Harcourt has been accused of entertaining child labour acts after underage boys were reportedly spotted at the church working on a building construction.

An eye witness took to Twitter to reveal what he saw and said that the children were working at an uncompleted building of the church at Trans Amadi, Port Hacourt.

“Kids working at a construction site owned by the Anglican Church in Port Harcourt; if this is not the worst case of Childlabour, I don’t know what it is,” a Twitter user by the name OfficialJuiX wrote.

In the photo posted by the eye-witness on Twitter, two male teenagers can be seen on a scaffolding of a construction site.

Child labour cases have become very rampant in Nigeria. In 2010, The US Department of Labour in its report claims Nigeria is witnessing the worst forms of child labor, particularly in agriculture and domestic service.
