With the migration of families from rural to urban areas in search of employment, new social problems are on the increase in urban areas in Nigeria. Problems of poor housing, prostitution, alcoholism, family violence, crime, drug peddling, child labour and trafficking are evident (Odumosu, 1999; Babanyara, Usman and Saleh, 2010). Most of these problems are associated with poverty and unemployment (Akewushola, Olateju and Adeyemi, 2007; Englama, 2001; Odumosu, 1999; Ogun, 2010).
