A Nigerian woman identified as Esohe Akonedo has shared her heart-wrenching experience in Libya where she travelled for the purpose of crossing to Europe.
Speaking with YEN.com.gh, Ese said she was raped in the desert after their vehicle was attacked by armed robbers, adding that she had to drink her urine because there was no water.
According to the young woman who has four kids for two men, her husband abandoned her with the children. She said she had to travel to Libya in search of greener pastures to ensure that her kids were taken care of.
Ese said she was working as a salesgirl before leaving the shores of Nigeria. Getting to Libya was hellish for her just like others who have tried to cross to Europe via the North African country.
The woman who worked as a prostitute in Libya said she and others were arrested on the sea when trying to enter Europe. Since she got back into the country, life hasn't been easy for her.
Ese who now sells sachet water to cater for herself and four kids said she still does prostitution whenever she is broke.
Breaking down in tears, Ese said:
"I wish to stop if I see help. How will I pay my children's school? I don't want my children to live the life I'm living."
YEN.com.gh previously reported that a Nigerian man simply identified as Festus shared his horrible experience in Libya where he travelled by road.
Festus said he was told that his trip from Nigeria to Libya and then to Italy would only take one week but he almost died when he embarked on the journey if not for the intervention of God.
