CNN’s Nima Elbagir goes undercover to unravel how migrants who risk their lives to Europe through the desert in Edo State, Nigeria


CNN has published a report of how Nima Elbagir, one of its senior international correspondents, went undercover in order to have a first-hand experience of how migrants risk their lives to get to Europe through the desert.


The report titled, ‘Don’t struggle if you’re raped’, gives a chilling account of the activities of human traffickers in Edo state. Nima started the journey from Edo to Kano but pulled out before getting to the destination. The report showed that the plight of over 5,000 Nigerians repatriated from Libya after being sold into slavery, has not discouraged those interested in embarking on the risky journey.

Below is the full report:

In a lurid pink hotel room in Edo State, southern Nigeria, a trafficker is arranging to smuggle us across the continent to Libya and ultimately Europe.  Fluorescent lights flicker intermittently inside the hotel, which doubles as a brothel and serves as the headquarters of tonight’s operation.  We are posing as would-be migrants attempting to reach Italy with the help of our “pusherman” one of an army of brokers who work alongside smugglers on the Nigerian end of the migrant route from Africa to Europe.


Edo State is Nigeria’s trafficking hub and one of Africa’s largest departure points. Each year, tens of thousands of migrants are illegally smuggled from here. They’re refugees fleeing conflict or economic migrants in search of better opportunities in Europe, mosthaving sold everything they own to finance the journey.

But as CNN revealed in an exclusive report last year, they often never get beyond Libya.

When they arrive, they’re told by smugglers they will need to pay thousands of dollars more to continue their journey across the Mediterranean.

When the migrants fail to pay, they are held in grim living conditions, deprived of food, abused by their captors, and sold as laborers in slave auctions.

Footage obtained of a slave auction in Libya — in which young men were sold by smugglers for as little as $400 each  caused international outrage.

The ‘VIP’ package
Three months later we wanted to see whether that outrage had translated into action. CNN producer Leposo and I went undercover as two wealthy women paying for the “VIP” travel package from Nigeria to Europe, which includes a smuggler who will meet us in the northern city of Kano and escort us across the border into Libya.


We gave scant detail about our situation, saying only that we hoped to reach Italy and then travel from there to London. The smugglers were mostly interested in our money, and asked few questions.

In reality, our plan was to secure a deal, set off from Auchi in the north of Edo State, and then quit the journey as soon as we were safely out of the sight of smugglers.

Setting up the deal was incredibly easy. Hassan, another CNN producer, worked undercover to negotiate a deal with the pusherman in Ekpoma, also in Edo State.

Hassan negotiated 500,000 Nigerian naira for each of us, roughly $1,400.

The money was due on our arrival in Libya. Hassan was the guarantor of our journey and would be held accountable if we became frightened and backed out of the deal.

He was told by the pusherman that the price to smuggle women is higher than for, say, small boys, because women’s journeys are “even more difficult — they are molested there (in Libya).”

As part of our “VIP” travel package, we were offered condoms for the journey. The pusherman later expressed dismay that I hadn’t packed any myself.

“We give you contraception,” he told me. “You need men in Libya to be kind to you. They will have things you want. Do you understand?”

When I said “yes,” he laughed.

“Of course, you understand,” he continued. “You don’t get something for nothing in this life. You’re lucky, the men sometimes wait six months before they’re put on the boat to Europe.”

“Women though — if they’re like you — sometimes you can be put on a boat the very next day.”

He has a warning for me: “Listen, don’t struggle if you’re raped.”

Sexual abuse on the migrant route

Women and children routinely face sexual violence, abuse and detention along the Central Mediterranean migration route from North Africa to Italy, according to a 2017 UNICEF report.

“Nearly half the women and children interviewed had experienced sexual abuse during migration — often multiple times and in multiple locations,” said the report, which compiled testimony from 122 migrants.
The attorney general of Edo State, Yinka Omorogbe, is leading a taskforce that was set up last August to combat modern slavery and human trafficking.

“We are actively involved in investigation and have commenced several prosecutions,” she told CNN in a written statement. “Like I have said, we have just started. We are awaiting a state anti-trafficking law which will further strengthen us. We have a destination and we’ll get there.”

“Trafficking in Edo is neither solely about economic issues nor underdevelopment, but has deep cultural roots that must be exposed, examined and pulled out.”
Meeting the pusherman

Within one day of Hassan securing a deal, we met the pusherman at the hotel to embark on the first stage of the journey.

Floral curtains adorned the room’s barred windows, and not much was explained to us by the traffickers. Very quickly we were taken to the local bus depot in Auchi, where the pusherman flagged down a bus traveling north to Kano.

Public transport offers good cover for smugglers in Nigeria. It’s far more difficult for authorities to keep tabs on buses running through their usual routes, laden with people and legitimate goods, then it is to chase down vehicles specially used by the traffickers.

We squeezed down the aisles of the busy overnight bus before the doors were locked shut from the outside as a safety precaution against potential hijackers.

Once out of sight of the smugglers, we disembarked on the outskirts of the city, where Hassan was waiting for us. We were relieved to see him.

Had we kept going as our traffickers intended we would have arrived in Kano 14 hours later. From there, the plan was that a member of the smuggling network would have put us on a second bus destined for Agadez in Niger.

From Agadez we would have traveled to Sabha in southern Libya a place where survivors of the slave trade have previously told CNN they were marched off the bus at gunpoint, later to be sold at auction.

Luckily for us, none of that is our future. For others, it is a horror they cannot escape.
And as our rapid quest from contacting a pusherman, to negotiating a deal, and setting off on a bus towards Libya showed, it is a still a journey all too easy to make.

Machine Gun Kelly joins forces with X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha on “Home,” the newest single from Will Smith’s upcoming Netflix blockbuster, Bright.

The piano-laden track features X and Bebe on the soaring chorus, while MGK delivers the rap verses. “I still ache from trying to keep pace,” he raps on the first verse. “Somebody give me a sign, I’m starting to lose faith.”

Kellz, who also sings on the track, rhymes about overcoming obstacles, including demonic opps. “If I have any enemies, give me the strength to look the devil in his face and make it home safe,” he rhymes.

Kelly wrote his portion of the track the day he found out that Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington had died of suicide. “My original verses were a little too dark because of where my lyrics were stemming from, so I re-wrote and re-recorded my verses 13 times until we got the one we wanted,” said Kelly. “Bebe and X Ambassadors give me goosebumps when they start riffing back and forth at the end of the song; it feels like we all recorded it from the same emotional place. Home can be anything… A person, a dream, an escape — whatever it is, we all want a home.”

The official video, directed by Bright director David Ayer, will be released on Thanksgiving Day via Netflix.

“Home” follows “Darkside,” a collaboration between Ty Dolla $ign, Future, and Kiiara, which is also from the movie’s soundtrack.

Featuring Logic, Migos, Meek Mill, YG, Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki, A$AP Rocky, and more, Bright: The Album is due Dec. 13, while the film will premiere on Netflix on Dec. 22.

Apostle Suleman writes Keyamo, gives one week ultimatum…demands N1 billion, to write Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee

Read the letter Apostle Suleman’s lawyers wrote to Festus Keyamo chambers…
Festus  Keyamo  Esq,
Festus Keyamo Chambers
Anthony  Village, Maryland, Lagos.
Allegation of professional misconduct and unethical practices.

Sequel to our letter to you dated 6th March, 2017 we have observed with shock and dismay your deliberate and relentless efforts to malign and convict our client, Apostle Johnson Suleman through media trial.
By your relentless media campaign, you are conducting yourself in a manner inconsistent with S.1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners 2007. Instead of gathering your facts and evidence before a court of competent jurisdiction for adjudication you have cleverly resorted to blackmail and intimidation of our client through the media-both traditional and social media. In short, you have threatened and indeed executed your threat of conjuring, manufacturing and synthesizing bogus and unverifiable exhibits in the social media and newspapers, all with a view to poison public opinion against our client and reduce his esteem and reputation in the eye of any reasonable man. Your attitude is also to ambush a fair trial while litigation is anticipated. This is contrary to S.33 of the Rules of Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners 2007.
In the Punch newspapers of Tuesday, March 7, 2017 Vol. 41 No 21,388 page 10 you were quoted in an interview threatening to “release more bullets.” You said your client under your supervision will be organizing a world press conference and “we will begin to release bullets.”
Furthermore, you grossly and recklessly maligned our client, saying, “these men of God are not what they claim to be, we have a duty to protect the public. Many of them are fake and fraudsters. You will see the video very soon in the next few minutes.” True to your threat of trial publicity stunts, the video clips have flooded the social media networks.
We believe your conduct is inconsistent with the virtues and rules of conduct of the legal profession. It smacks of indiscipline and disdain for the judicial process. Therefore, we demand a retraction of all your press statements and an apology to be published in the major social media networks and Punch newspapers.
Also, we demand a compensation of One Billion Naira for all the injuries inflicted on our client. We expect you to meet our demands within seven days from the date above written.
TAKE NOTICE that we shall drag you before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee for infamous conduct, if you fail to so do.
Yours faithfully,
Osa Director Esq
For: OSA Director & Co.

Music: Maroon 5 feat. Future – ‘Cold’

On the heels of their top 10 collaboration “Don’t Wanna Know” with Kendrick Lamar, Maroon 5 teams up with Future for their latest single, “Cold.”

The icy collaboration is about love gone wrong, featuring Adam Levine’s harmonies. “Cold enough to chill my bones,” he sings. “It feels like I don’t know you anymore / I don’t understand why you’re so cold to me.”

It also features lyrics that could be interpreted as a dig at his ex-fiancée Ciara. “Never thought that you were like this,” he sings. “I took the tag off and made you priceless / I just spent half a mill on a chandelier / Now you tryin’ to cut me off like a light switch.”

Maroon 5 is set to perform “Cold” on “Ellen” this Wednesday (Feb. 15). No word yet on whether Hendrix will join the band for the set.

M5 has yet to reveal plans for their next album, which is expected to include “Don’t Wanna Know” and “Cold.” Their last LP was 2014’s V, which featured Gwen Stefani.

Meanwhile, Future is about to drop his self-titled album on Friday (Feb. 17), while his “Nobody Safe Tour” kicks off in May with Migos, Tory Lanez, and Kodak Black.

Grab a jacket and listen to “Cold” below.


Video: Desiigner – ‘Outlet’

Desiigner finds an “Outlet” for his energy in his latest video, which doubles as an ad for Champs Sports.

Donning an adidas tracksuit, the “Panda” hitmaker wilds out everywhere as he raps along to the track, which was teased back in October.

The clip was shot as a behind-the-scenes look at a new commercial, with the G.O.O.D. Music MC enjoying every second of the shoot. “Got that Ruger on me,” he raps throughout. “Jeweler on me / Moolah on me.”

Video: Chris Brown feat. Usher & Gucci Mane – ‘Party’

Just moments after the song hit iTunes, Chris Brown unleashes the dance-heavy video for his new single “Party” featuring Usher and Gucci Mane.

The five-minute clip, which he also directed, opens with Breezy trying to get into an underground club. But to gain access, he must impress the gatekeeper with a dance routine. After winning them over with his song “Kriss Kross” (off OHB’s Attack the Block mixtape), he gains access. Once inside, he continues to wow with his electrifying moves.


Usher emerges in a gold throne and slides down the escalators to deliver his own killer choreography, while Gucci Mane parties like he just got out of jail.

Breezy’s talent and work ethic made a lasting impression on Guwop. “Sitting with him and seeing how creative he is, it’s inspirational,” he told Power 106. “He’s intense. He does everything.”

“Party” serves as a lead single off Brown’s eighth album Heartbreak on a Full Moon, due next year.

Watch the thrilling video below.

Lil Bibby ft. Meek Mill & PnB Rock – ‘Some How Some Way’

Just in time for the holidays, Lil Bibby provides some inspiration on “Some How Some Way” featuring Meek Mill and PnB Rock.

Produced by JHolt, the soulful song borrows from Jermaine Jackson’s “Castles of Sand,” which Jay Z also sampled on his Scarface and Beanie Sigel-assisted song off 2002’s The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse.

Meek even references Jigga on his verse. “Knew it was never love when I seen the Roc break up,” he rhymes. “Damn, hope this money don’t ever change us.”

It’s been a productive December for Bibby, who dropped the 21 Savage-assisted “Squad” earlier this month. Both tracks are likely off the forthcoming Free Crack 4.

Listen to “Some How Some Way” below.

Video: The Game feat. Jason Derulo – ‘Baby You’


The Game and Jason Derulo bring “Baby You” to life in the music video for their 1992collaboration.

Directed by Benny Boom, the sleek visual begins with a man claiming his girl is stepping out on him with a Blood from Compton. Then, The Game appears with a gorgeous woman by his side.

Hanging out at Jim Gilliam Park in South Los Angeles, The Game continues to chill with the same lady while her husband rolls by, looking to confirm the infidelity.

As the video comes to an close, however, it becomes apparent that The Game was actually filming a music video the whole time. Still, he rides out with the model at the end.

Watch the story unfold below.

Video: DJ Esco feat. Future & Lil Uzi Vert – ‘Too Much Sauce’


Just in time for the weekend, DJ Esco throws some “Sauce” on it in his flashy video featuring Future and Lil Uzi Vert.

Decked out in designer threads, the “coolest DJ on the planet” rocks alongside Future and Uzi at an arcade. The fellas make it rain and show off some moves alongside their female friends. Future rocks Saint Laurent, while Uzi stunts in VLONE and Off-White. Meanwhile, the ladies partake in some arcade games, go-kart racing, and even girl-on-girl action.

“Too Much Sauce” is a standout from Future and DJ Esco’s joint mixtape Project E.T.: Esco Terrestrial, which dropped in June.

Watch them turn their swag below.
