NO WEALTHY PROSTITUTE ANYWHERE.........Leave Italy Alone, Don't Die on the Sea!

Travelling for prostitution is not "Going to see the world,” 

I listened to a recent testimony of a young girl that launched out into the Italy 'hustling' expedition immediately she completed writing her final degree examination, without waiting to see the result or do her Mandatory Youth Service (NYSC), and I felt so bad inside of me... the state of hopelessness of our young ones, fueled by some bad examples they see around them.

This young girl went to Libya through her brother's network as it appeared he in the ring and after 4 months in the camps in Libya, going to Prison and Police cells in Libya, she was deported pregnant, but not married and without any means of livelihood still.

I think we can all do something to help the youth who are 'worried' about life in Nigeria being hard and would rather prefer to leave at all cost, to anywhere and do whatever menial job that is available to BE PATIENT.  

Be patient - Yes, things are very tough and is even getting tougher everyday....but I think it is the same everywhere.  Hundreds sleep on the street in America.  They are called the homeless and many have live on the street since they were born.

It is time we discourage this raging prostitution business and tell our young girls the truth.  Any one taking you to Italy, Spain or anywhere in Europe is taking you into PROSTITUTION.  I am yet to see a wealthy Prostitute - It wouldn't happen.  They all die in poverty, living from one place to another, one hotel to another, from one man to another till they cannot help themselves.  

Their misery cannot be explained by another person, but by they themselves.  Their old age is very pitiable.  After serving as a 'Slave' girl for men for years, they are always worn-out and lonely - No husband, children - some may have children, but the nature of life never allow them to train such children to be useful in society.

In Benin City, Lagos and other fast cities  in Nigeria, we must tell our young girls to RENOUNCE PROSTITUTION.  It leaves ladies worthless and frustrated.  The italian dimension to it makes matter worse because the moment the ladies leave Nigeria through the Sahara, they may have begun the journey to their grave, some who fall off the fast moving migrant truck, die in the desert, others die in Libya after months of suffering, yet some on the Mediterranean Sea trying to cross etc. 

The catalog of death is terrible and some parents are still allowing their children to undertake this journey is shocking.  Going for prostitution is not "Going abroad to see the world" as the young girls are deceived to believe.


In Benin City, Nigeria’s capital of illegal migration, no one says the word “prostitution”. The word on the street for the young girls who leave for Italy or France is “hustling”.

About 37,500 Nigerians arrived in Italy by boat in 2016, more than from any other African country, and most of them were from the southern city, the capital of Edo state.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has recorded an explosion in the number of Nigerian women trafficked into Europe.

In 2013, there were 433 but the following year, it rose to nearly 5,000. There was a “substantial increase” in “more easily-manipulated” under-age victims, the IOM says. Most are destined for sexual slavery.

“Why Edo? Why Benin City? I am trying to understand and it gives me a headache,” says Sister Bibiana, who helps young women when they return from Europe, voluntarily or otherwise.

“But they’re itching to go back.”

The benevolent smile of Jesus radiates down on the meeting room of Sister Bibiana’s small charity in Benin City.

“In Europe, people are good people. They are like Jesus,” says one woman, Miracle, explaining why she left Nigeria in 2012...My God, How are the people in Europe like Jesus, if I may ask?

But the woman continued “I pray to God every day. I ask him to find me a way to go back.”

Miracle returned from Italy two years ago. The story she tells is sketchy. She claims only to have been a sex worker for a few weeks before being rescued.

But the nun who knows her background insists Miracle was a prostitute from when she arrived in Europe until the time she left.

The women, who come from poor backgrounds with little education, do not have the means to get to Italy.

But in Benin City, “cartels” of human traffickers are everywhere. Women need only find a “madame” to organise the trip and get false papers, with the promise of a job.

Some believe they will become hairdressers, others that they will be high-class prostitutes in big hotels. Few ask questions.

Once in Europe, they find themselves on the streets of Palermo or Paris, selling sex for between five and 10 euros ($5.50-$11) a time to pay back a debt of 50,000-60,000 euros ($55,000-$66,000).

Divinity went to Dubai rather than Italy. She says her debt was “only” 15,000 euros and going overseas had been a long-held dream.

“All my life, I’ve dreamt to travel abroad and see the world,” says Divinity, who was 18 when she left.

But she later realised she would never be free of the people who trafficked her and decided to go to the police. The authorities didn’t want to know.

She’s now back on the streets of Benin City, where poverty and evangelical churches mix with Western Union money transfer bureaus, where parents pick up money sent by children who left to “hustle” - Do prostitution abroad.

Among those who “failed” to make it in Europe, many go back onto the streets when they get home with traumatic tales about seeing dozens of clients per night along country roads, the “sexual practices of white people” and sleeping rough in railway stations.

Worse still, they recount the journey through Libya.

The traffickers tout the European dream to village girls who haven’t even been to Lagos, the country’s economic capital, about 300 kilometres (190 miles) away.

They have little idea of the world but are sure life is better elsewhere.

Patience says she moved to Dubai by choice and not because she was forced by a madame.

“I went by myself, by road,” she says, explaining she had hoped to find self-improvement and travel opportunities in a country not hit by recession.

Nigeria’s economy, over-reliant on oil revenues, has been in trouble since the price of crude slumped on the worldwide market, weakening the local naira currency.

Even a small salary in euros is a huge sum when sent home, and earns more respect among families.

Sociologist Edoja Okyokunu, from the University of Benin City, says many Nigerians don’t want to be cut off from the chance of going overseas and escaping poverty in their homeland, even if it means getting involved in human trafficking.

“Who is complaining here? People don’t want NGOs against human trafficking to help,” he tells AFP.

“I call it self-recruited human cargo, that’s why policies are not working. People are not victims of trafficking, they are only victims of poverty.”


FIRE:   The pregnant young returnee I shared her testimony would need someone to counsel her to stay back in Nigeria and start some business or another.  Many of these girls are already possessed by the spirit of lust in such a dimension that some of them can hardly think of what to do to live honourable.  

The easy life of smoking and drinking and sleeping with men has eaten deep into their bones. The devil has done this - May God help us!
