Nigerian girls as young as 13 are increasingly being trafficked to Italy to work as street prostitutes, experts have revealed. The young girls are promised jobs as baby sitters and hairdressers once they arrive in Italy but instead they end up on the streets selling themselves for as little as 10 euros (£8.90) a time, terrified into submission by gang rape and voodoo curses. Statistics show that of the 100,000 migrants who have been rescued at sea so far this year and brought to Italy, 15 per cent were Nigerian.“There are girls aged 13, 14 and 15 on the streets now – a lot of them are underage. They are so young and they are living such terrible experiences,” said Anna Pozzi, an expert on the sex trade and the author of a book, Slave Merchants.Anna added that “they come from desperately poor families. Many have not been to school and are illiterate. They dream of a better life in Europe, they see Italy as a paradise. They are getting younger and younger.”Nigerians now make up the biggest nationality crossing the Mediterranean in smuggling boats launched from Libya, and many of the migrants are girls and young women who are destined for the sex trade.Photo Credit: Getty
