headlines 0 0

The Nigerian authorities say they have rescued nine young girls and one boy who were being trafficked to Moscow.

Five suspects, including a policeman and a quarantine officer, were arrested for facilitating their travel, the government agency fighting trafficking says.

The victims had football supporter ID cards in order to look as though they were fans heading to the World Cup in Russia.

Criminals have been pressurizing young Nigerians and their parents to take advantage of the World Cup to get Russian visas, the agency says.

But it warns that, once out of the country, the victims would be exploited by the traffickers.
