My name is Glory. I’m 29 and I come from Nigeria. Ten years ago I tried to emigrate to Europe, but that didn’t work out – so now I’m living back in Nigeria. I received some assistance to set up my own fashion label. This is my story:
My family urgently needed money when I was 19 years old. People smugglers promised to get my mother, me and my brother Frank to Europe. The plan was for us to work there and send money back to our family in Nigeria. But we were abducted and taken to Libya, and what we experienced there was horrible. Luckily I was freed after three years and the police arranged for me to go to the United Nations camp, where a church organisation enabled me to return to Nigeria. My brother also managed to escape.
