The European Asylum Support Office  published a new Country of Origin Information (COI) report entitled ‘Nigeria – Sex Trafficking of women’. The report provides information on the modus operandi of trafficking and the situation of victims of trafficking returning to Nigeria. In the report, the role of “madams” within the trafficking networks is highlighted, and the debt system described. Other relevant factors discussed in the report are the role of women’s relatives, and the extent in which “juju” (voodoo or witchcraft) may be used in sex trafficking.
