Abstract
Illegal migration has become a phenomenon that has continued to dominate various discussions around the
world, especially in Europe and the United Nations. Data available has placed Nigeria ahead of other nations;
even with the growing number of deaths in the Mediterranean Sea, slave trades, and other scary stories
connected to illegal migration, the menace has continued unabated. This study advocates for a robust
communication approach through the use of media plurality (which is the simultaneous use of available media
channels and every mean of communication) to curb illegal migration of Nigerians to Europe. The findings
revealed that majority, (326 or 91%) are aware of media plurality, but (320 or 89%) claimed that media plurality
has not been adopted in the fight to curb illegal migration. It was agreed by all the 358 (100%) participants that
media plurality has the potential to influence positive behaviours against illegal migration, and has the capacity
to infuse several positive behaviours; mainly to discourage illegal migration. The hypothesis indicated Chisquare
value of 0.000 (at P ≤ 0.05 levels of significance) revealed that media plurality is significant in curbing
illegal migration in Nigeria.

Key words: Migration, Illegal migration, Plurality, Media Plurality, Channel diversity
