No fewer Than 15 Nigerians belonging to the Eiye confraternity have been arrested by the italian Police. They are said to have lured young girls into prostitution, money laundering e.t.c.
The Italian police force said the 15 people who were arrested have roots in Nigeria and that they got the information from a distraught member of the cult who was being drilled for not observing some of the codes of the cult.
In a statement:
“The 15 people detained by order of the L’Aquila District Anti-Mafia Directorate are of Nigerian nationality.”
“All those arrested belong to the “Pesha” cell which had its influence on the entire Adriatic coastal area from Teramo to Ancona.
“The number of crimes committed by members of the mafia organization is impressive: money laundering and illegal financial intermediation towards Nigeria; trafficking in young women sexually exploited along the Bonifica del Tronto road and subjected to violence and harassment; drug supply; violent crimes against members of other groups or punitive towards other compatriots.”
The Italian Police Force known as Polizia di Stato said they have been detained and will be prosecuted afterwards.
