They’ve fled violence, poverty, and terrorism – and made the often perilous journey across the Mediterranean from Africa and the Middle East. But for the more than 100,000 migrants who’ve arrived in Italy so far this year, the life that awaits them can be almost as dangerous as the one they left behind.

This is particularly true for economic migrants, who don’t have the same legal status as refugees, and aren’t given the same work permits or financial aid to help them survive. Barred from the legal workforce, and with few financial options, many are targeted by criminal gangs — supported by the Italian mafia — and thrust into a life of sex slavery and drug trafficking.

That’s what VICE News discovered after visiting Ballarò, a small market area, and traditional mafia stronghold near Palermo, Sicily, where the infamous Cosa Nostra mafia syndicate continues to wield power.

Bad leadership!!! UAE and Qatar are blessed with oil,the same oil that we have in abundance as a nation. Yet the different is very clear. While Qatar and UAE are using the proceeds from the oil to build infrastructures,develop their economy, provide Job and enabling environment for it's citizens, reverse is the case with this hell called Nigeria. Instead of the oil proceed to be put into use, it all but end up in the pockets of few individuals.
Why would people migrate to other country if there are jobs,enabling environment, infrastructures etc in this country?.But all these are not available because of the bad leaders that have be devil this country since 1960

Hmm! Eye opening documentary. Nigerian black axxe working with the Italian mafia to control the drug and prostitution market in Sicily. It's so unfortunate that criminal minded Nigerians in Italy are making a real bad name for us. But the life in Sicily (Italy) really is harsh o...at least from this documentary. I swear, I live a better life here in Ibadan than must of the people I saw in this documentary.

Charity they say begins at home.

An Agama lizard in Nigeria will still be an Agama lizard anywhere else in the world.


Most Nigerians will do anything to survive and become a big money spender regardless of HOW they make it. They are more of the opinion that the end justifies the means.

To an average Nigerian........

Ritual is normal,
Drug trafficking is normal,
Yahoo yahoo is normal,
Armed robbery is normal,
Cultism is normal,
Prostitution is normal,
Selling human parts is normal,
Eating human excreta is normal,
Being mad for a period of time is normal.

All the Evil and illegitimate ways of getting wealth is now seen as normal. They term it HUSTLE and often say, ALL HUSTLE NA HUSTLE.

But the Bible has this hard truth to tell us;

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 14:12


One day, monkey go go market, e no go come back!

Absolutely, home and abroad we continue to treat each other unkindly and wonder why other groups take a leaf out of our barbaric book and then subject us all to the worst treatment imaginable.

Ranchhoddas:
Join the Corleone Family. Become a Button man and you'll be alright.

Avoid the Barzinis and the Tattaglias.
They are evil.

Only sad thing is that as an African, you can only be a foot soldier.

You can never be an associate, never mind being referred as "one of us".
