Four Nigerians have been arrested by the Italian authorities for human trafficking and forcing underaged girls into prostitution.
The suspects, a 42-year-old woman, her 36-year-old brother, his 31-year-old wife and a 26-year-old woman, were alleged to have accomplices both in Nigeria and Libya.
According to the information gathered by the Catania anti-mafia police, one of the victims was recruited in Nigeria after her recruiter promised her a good job in Italy.
She performed several fetish rituals before she was asked to pay 20,000 euros, which she agreed to pay once she gets to Italy.
Unfortunately for her, immediately she arrived Sicily, she was picked up with instructions to start working as a prostitute.
The case of human trafficking is, no doubt, on the high side. People take these underaged girls out of the country with the promise of getting them a job and a better life abroad. In most cases, it ends up being a lie and they are lured into prostitution once they are out of the country.
It is now more imperative than ever for young girls to be wary of lucrative job offers overseas.
