We are delighted that Voice of America - VOA has reported on Lost in Europe's investigative findings about the almost 1,000 Nigerian asylum seekers who went missing from asylum centres in the Netherlands last year. Our investigation was led by Sanne Terlingen

"A group of investigative reporters says almost half of Nigerian asylum seekers arriving in the Netherlands last year disappeared. It is believed that many fell victim to human traffickers who forced them into prostitution or drug trafficking across the European Union.

A European journalism collective says of the 2,461 Nigerians seeking asylum in the Netherlands in 2019, 961 cannot be located. Another 128 Nigerians who arrived in January of this year also disappeared, according to an investigation by the journalist group Lost in Europe. "
