British airports such as Gatwick are increasingly used as entry points to the European Union by Nigerian trafficking gangs seeking alternatives to perilous Mediterranean Sea crossings, Spanish police have warned.The number of people identified as potential victims of human trafficking in Britain rose by 21 percent to 3,309 in 2014, the U.K.'s National Crime Agency (NCA) said last year.The nationality of the victims was known in only 2,100 cases of which nearly 9 percent were Nigerian, the agency's data showed.The raid on the SEC in Barcelona mentioned in the BBC report took 18 months of planning and resulted in 23 arrests.But the SEC has hundreds of members running operations out of Ibadan, about 100 km (60 miles) northeast of the Nigerian city of Lagos, the BBC report said.
