Most wanted Nigerian mafia woman leader extradited to Italy


By Francesca Iwambe

A leader, Jeff Joy, who was one of the few women on 's 100 most wanted criminal list, has been extradited to Italy.

Joy, 48, was sentenced in 2010 to 13 years in jail in Italy for criminal conspiracy, slavery, people trafficking and living off the proceeds of prostitution.

Police said she was one of the leaders of the Nigerian Mafia leader or Black Mafia in Italy and had a leading role in bringing young Nigerian women to Italy, Spain and the Netherlands to work as prostitutes, using violence and threats of all kinds including voodoo rites against them and their family members back home.

She was arrested last June 4 in by the local intelligence services and was flown back to Italy Wednesday, arriving at Rome's Ciampino Airport.

It is the first extradition between the two countries on the basis of a new treaty that came into force in 2020.
