Every year, at least 50,000 girls travel from Nigeria (mostly from Benin City, one of the countryÕs poorest cities) to Europe. A trafficker, with the help of a voodoo, or juju, priest, managed to convince them that a decent job awaits them in the promised land. The journey is often nightmarish, crossing the Lybian Sahara on a truck, and trying to reach the coast of Italy or Spain on a precarious rubber boat. Many of the girls die of fatigue, of dehydration, or drown at sea before reaching their destination. Those who make it, soon realize that the promised job does not exist: after their papers are seized by the traffickers, they are sent on the street as prostitutes. Meanwhile, in Nigeria, the government and an Ngo run by nuns are fighting to set these 21st Century slaves free: from their masters, as well as from the naivete that makes them so vulnerable. /// Benin City, Nigeria.
