Nigerian Prostitutes In Ibiza Subjected To Voodoo Rituals And Beatings

www.Physinews.com, Police have freed 21 women who were working
in the sex trade in exclusive districts on the
holiday island - and arrested 24 suspects
Police carrying out raids in Ibiza freed 21
women who were forced to kneel for hours and
beaten unless they brought in €1,000 A DAY as
prostitutes .


The victims, who were kept on the Spanish
mainland in the winter before being taken to the
holiday island for the summer, were forced to
work 14 hours a day.

One of the women, police have revealed, was
just 16 years of age. All 21 are Nigerian and
were working in the exclusive districts of Ibiza.

A major operation carried out by the Spanish
police in association with the Office of Criminal
Investigation in Germany and Europol has led
to the arrest of 24 suspects.

"The network captured very young victims
among the lower classes of the major Nigerian
cities, deceiving them with false job offers in
Spain. Once in our country, they were forced
into prostitution in marathon days, being
beaten if they did not earn the money
demanded by the gang," said a police
spokesman.

Those arrested included two women said to be
the ringleaders who had "years of experience"
in recruiting vulnerable girls.

Police said they took elaborate steps to avoid
detection, often moving the women from house
to house.

The vulnerable women were given offers "too
good to refuse" in view of their poor
circumstances but once captured, were unable
to escape.

They were subjected to voodoo rituals and
sworn to loyalty contracts under the threat of
family members being killed.

The women were smuggled into Europe on
boats and planes and were only told their job
offer was false when they arrived in Spain. They
were then told they would have to pay up to
50,000 pounds to be freed and could do so
through prostitution.

Investigators said Ibiza was chosen for the
summer because of the high influx of tourists,
with the gang totalling controlling the streets of
the exclusive areas.

They were kept in one apartment and only
allowed out occasionally to buy food or to keep
an appointment with a client.

"If they didn't earn 1,000 euros a day, they
would be forced to kneel for hours and beaten
with sticks and brooms," said the spokesman.

Police found that 17 women were forced to
share one apartment of just 30 square metres,
with three to four girls sleeping in one single
bed.

One of the gang was arrested in Germany where
he had tried to hide and five others were found
to be members of the 1960s cult called
"Supreme Eiye Confraternity".

The money earned from prostitution was sent
to Nigeria via Madrid where a bar was used as
the front.

Seven properties were raided in Spain and
Germany and 20 bank accounts blocked.
