The Igbo Tradition of Indentured Servitude

Most tribes have uniquely beautiful cultures that naturally evolve over time. The Igbo culture of indentured servitude has evolved into a tradition. The tradition of bringing relatives from the village to apprentice in their store in the city. They would often use them as house help for years without compensation under the pretext of training them in the trade of one day owning their own store.

It is the 40 acres and a mule agreement.

They keep these school age children in servitude while they send their children to private schools. The women would do things like bring their younger sisters from the village to “serve” them in their matrimonial homes, making them easy target practice for their husband’s libido. – @OgbeniAyotunde
