Lagos - Spanish police have arrested 25 Nigerians for alleged involvement in a sex trafficking ring abducting girls to work as prostitutes in Spain.
Arrests were made across Spain in Madrid, Toledo, Cantabria and Palma de Mallorca, according to the BBC.
The girls were reportedly lured into the ring with the promise of good jobs in Europe. The victims were first flown to Mexico or Brazil before entering Spain through Italy.
BBC reports that more than 100 vans concealing luxury goods were also seized.
The gang used the vans to launder their profits and send money back to Lagos, police say.
According to police, the gang was formed more than 20 years ago and operated in Nigerian universities. The gang was also known for sending fraudulent letters by email asking recipients to send money.
