So Sad: A Detailed Analysis Of What Nigerian Prostites Go Through In Italy (Photos)



A lot of Nigerian women are being trafficked to Europe, majorly to Italy under the pretence that they will be working as nannies or in factories, but they often end up working the streets as protitutes.

Their plight has been highlighted by a Paris-based photographer Elena Perlino, originally from Italy, who began to notice the presence of many young African women working on the streets during her cummutes from Turin.

Perlino said: ‘I decided to start from this surreal vision to tell a story. I have been working on the topic for several years, focusing mainly on the Italian connection.’

She reveals that many Nigerian women come to Italy hoping to make enough money from honest jobs as nannies or factory workers to support their family back home, but are tricked by traffickers into working as a prostitute.

Eighty per cent of women trafficked to Italy come from Benin City, Edo State, in south Nigeria.

The photographer explained: ‘My work attempts to show a complex phenomenon that crosses Italy from North to South.

‘This involves many cities including Turin, Milan, Genoa, Rome, Naples and Palermo and thousands of Nigerian and Italian people.’

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime declared Nigeria among the top eight countries with the highest human trafficking rates in the world.

Traffickers demand on average more than 50,000 euros (US $60,000) for travel expenses and accommodation, with the women having to work as prostitutes until their debts are paid off.
