Nigerian women are being trafficked to Italy under the pretense that they will be working as nannies or in factories – but often end up working the streets as prostitutes. Their plight has been highlighted by Paris-based photographer Elena Perlino, originally from Italy, who began to notice the presence of young African women working on the streets during her commutes from Turin. She said: 'I decided to start from this surreal vision to tell a story. I have been working on the topic for several years, focusing mainly on the Italian connection.'

Perlino reveals that many Nigerian women come to Italy hoping to make enough money from honest work as nannies or factory workers to support their families back home, but are tricked by traffickers into working in the sex trade.

Arrests, violence and abuse often follow. Traffickers demand on average more than 50,000 euros (US $60,000) for travel expenses and accommodation, with the women having to work as prostitutes until their debts are paid off.
Eighty per cent of women trafficked to Italy come from Benin City, Edo State, in south Nigeria. The photographer explained: ‘My work attempts to show a complex phenomenon that crosses Italy from North to South.
This involves many cities including Turin, Milan, Genoa, Rome, Naples and Palermo and thousands of Nigerian and Italian people.’ The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime declared Nigeria among the top eight countries with the highest human trafficking rates in the world

EVERY TRIBE HAS GET ONE FAULT OR THE OTHER, BUT AS FAR AS PROSTITUTION IN EUROPE IS CONCERN, IT IS BENIN GIRLS. THEY ARE EVERY WHERE IN EU DOING PROSTITUTION.
THEY ARE FEEDING & TAKING CARE OF THEIR MEN
IN SHORT, THEY CAN DO WITHOUT IT, IT HAS BECOME PART OF THEM

so you are the person who is responsible for the bini coming to Europe for prostitution, that's the reason you knew so much about them. Stupid idiot, as organised as the European and America some of their women are still into prostitution, haven't you saw them. It only bini people you know I but even your own sister's are among the prostitute.
