Three thousand six hundred Nigerian women arrived in Italy in the first six months of 2016, but 80 per cent of them face a single destiny: prostitution.

Indeed, the Nigerian women arrive on boats together with dozens, even hundreds, of other migrants. This is what makes it hard for the authorities to identify them as victims of the sex slave trade.
