‘It’s Never Your Fault’: The Nigerian teens tackling child marriage

Nigeria has the 11th highest percentage of child marriage in the world, according to the UN.

The initiative, called “It’s Never Your Fault”, aims to amend the law in Nigeria and protect children’s rights.

BBC Africa’s Faith Ilevbare has been to talk to them.
