The Spanish National Police, supported by Europol, the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) from Nigeria, have safeguarded four Nigerian women who were forced into prostitution in different Spanish locations. The dismantled network operated mainly in Spain, but also in Italy, the United Kingdom, Libya, Niger and Nigeria.
The investigation to dismantle the network began one year ago. The members of the criminal network recruited their victims by coercing them with voodoo threats in Benin City, Nigeria.
RENATE members working with Nigerian girls trafficked into Europe, talk about the power wielded by traffickers when they used voodoo as a means to frighten and control the girls.
