In 2015, 153,000 migrants arrived in the European Union via the Italian coast, according to the International Organization for Migration. The largest number — about 22,000 — were Nigerians. In May last year, Brussels opened talks with Abuja to make “readmission agreements” easier and oblige Nigeria to take back its nationals. Idia Renaissance NGO is focused to combat human trafficking, prostitution, HIV/AIDS and other anti-social vices through advocacy, information, counselling and education.
