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. The alarm was launched by the International Organization for Migration which recorded a steep increase in the phenomenon from 2014, when the number of Nigerian women reaching Italy by sea was only 1,500. 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.
