A Nigerian woman who escaped from her madam in Russia has narrated how she was trafficked to Russia for prostitution by another Nigerian woman and raped by four drunk white men.
Mrs. Osasis John, [not real name], now pregnant for a boyfriend she abandoned five years ago to seek greener pastures in Russia,said she left Nigeria in 2013, but before then was taken to a juju priest at Sabongiga Ora,a suburb in Edo State, where she swore to an oath.
Narrating her story to newsmen at the round table meeting organised by the leadership of the Nigerian Senate in Benin City to proffer solutions to the problems of illegal migration and human trafficking, the lady said, she was told by her madam that she will engage in prostitution for six months and then introduced to another business. It was based on this premise, she said, she agreed to go to Russia, signed an agreement to pay$50,000.00 out of which she paid $15,000.00 before her escape.
“I went to Russia in 2013, and the reason why I decided to go Russia was because, I gained admission into Edo State College of Education [COLBEN]but could not pay the fees, so when the woman approached me, I agreed to go to Russia. We agreed that I will pay her $ 50.000 and when I got to Russia,we were up to 20 girls sleeping in one room. We used to go out 3.00.pm and come back 3.00am. Out of the agreed $50.000,I paid $15,000.The worst day for me was the dayfour drunk men gang raped me.I was called by my madam to see a client, but I was not aware that they were four men, all drunk and when they took me out, they gang raped me, taking their turns one after another in a very cold night. At a time, I became tired of what I was doing, but the fear of the oath I swore was what held me bound”, she said
