Mercy, a young Nigerian woman, has escaped from a den of ritual killers after being enticed by a phony job offer in Italy.

According to report, the 24-year-old lady and her friend were lured to Lagos in October 2020, by a woman who promised to sponsor them to Italy to work as sales attendants in stores and stewards for rich clients.

Yearning for a new life, Mercy and her friend left their home in Warri for Lagos, without the knowledge of her guardian to meet with the team members of the woman that was to take them to Europe.

Contrary to what they were told, on getting to Lagos rather than a trip to Italy, they were given laced juice and transported to a forest where they were subjected to various forms of abuse. They were subjected to several hours of rape daily and endured hunger for several days.

SaharaReporters reports that Mercy, her friend and two others escaped from the den of ritual killers after spending around 9 months there. while in captivity Mercy witnessed the body parts of other victims being sold to ritualist.

Sadly, the friend, who introduced the Italy trip to Mercy, died while they were escaping from the forest.

Mercy returned to Warri last Thursday and gave birth by Caesarean section on Sunday. She was impregnated by her adductors who took turns to rape her and other ladies in the forest.
