"Slavery is theft - theft of a life, theft of woman, theft....." 25 Nigerian arrests ….


Spanish police have arrested 25 people in a sex-trafficking ring that brought women from Nigeria to work as prostitutes.

The women were deceptively ensnared with the promise of good jobs and good life in Europe. The woman were first flown to Mexico or Brazil, travelling on false identity documents, then flown from Brazil to Paris, and smuggled into Spain to work in the sex trade.

Police found one member of the gang performing an abortion on one of the women. Arrests were made across Spain - in Madrid, Toledo, Cantabria and Palma de Mallorca. More than 100 vans concealing luxury goods were also seized.

Police say the gang was formed more than 20 years ago in Nigerian universities and was also known for sending so-called Nigerian letters by email, asking recipients to send money. Eight of the 25 people arrested were in Spain illegally.
