Nigerian woman smuggled to the UK to work as sex slave & forced to undergo voodoo to prevent her from running away

3 members of an international prostitution ring that smuggled a Nigerian woman into the UK to work as a sex slave under the threat of a voodoo curse faced jail yesterday June 13, UK Daily Mail reports
The gang conned the innocent 23-year-old into flying to Heathrow Airport on a bogus passport with the promise of education, a job and a new home.
Before leaving Nigeria, she was raped and forced to go through a black magic ‘juju’ death ritual to prevent her running away.
But when the woman arrived in London, her employment failed to materialize. Instead, she was told she was destined to work as a sex slave in Italy, a court heard.
Convicted: Gang members; Johnson Olayinka (left) and Florence Obadiaru (right). Continue...



The plan was only thwarted when Italian authorities spotted her forged ID and sent her back to the UK.

It is believed the woman is just one of many victims of the group, based in Africa, that traffics young women through England to work as prostitutes in mainland Europe.

Olusoji Oluwafemi, 44, Johnson Olayinka, 45, and Florence Obadiaru, 48, were convicted of trafficking the woman into the UK for sexual exploitation and arranging for her transfer to Italy.
Oluwafemi and Olayinka were also found guilty of conspiring to get the woman a false passport.

Oluwatosin Osoba, 48, was acquitted of the same charge following a trial at the Old Bailey.

Judge Rebecca Poulet said custody is inevitable and sentence was adjourned until July 11.
The victim, who only spoke a little English, had been recruited by a Nigerian local called Beneditta in her home village near Benin City.
Her family had struggled financially since the death of her father in 2008, but she aspired to become a nurse.

In February 2011, Beneditta offered to help the young woman by sending her to England to be educated properly and get a job, the court heard. 

She was told the cost would be £40,000 - which she would have to repay to the organisers.
Prosecutor Christopher Ames told the court: ‘She had no idea at all what £40,000 was in her own currency, her life had been very hard after her father died, and she jumped at the chance to be educated and be trained for a job, and get away from the desperation and misery of her current family situation.

‘She was very excited, a naive young girl, at the prospect of going abroad.’
She was sent to the Nigerian capital of Lagos on March 23, 2011, to meet a man called Felis who made her a false passport and coached her in getting through UK immigration.
‘While he was doing that, he began to sexually assault her’, said Mr Ames. 
 
‘That led him to beat her with a belt and that in turn led to him raping her that night.’
When she complained to Beneditta the next morning, she was told: ‘It was what you should have expected’.
She was then told to pose for photos with a man who would pretend to be her husband.

In September 2011 she was summoned to the west African country of Benin to get a visa. The woman was then told to swear an oath to repay the money in a ceremony that involved cutting her armpit and pubic hair and taking finger nail clippings.
‘The oath she was solemnly required to take was to repay that money, £40,000, on pain of death if she did not,’ said Mr Ames.
‘This was what was known as a juju ceremony.’
She was driven to Lagos on September 12, 2011 and put on a plane to the UK, meeting Olayinka at Heathrow Airport.

Olayinka, calling himself ‘Mike’, checked her into the Marbella Hotel in Peckham, south London, and took away her money and passport.
She was next taken to the house of Obadiaru, an old friend of Beneditta’s, and kept there for a few weeks with no sign of a job or education.
Obadiaru’s son, who suffers from learning difficulties, groped her on the first night in the house in Brockley, southeast London.
But when she complained, Obadiaru allegedly told her: ‘What do you think you are here for?’

The woman was told she was being sent to Italy on October 3, 2011, and collected another false passport from Olayinka’s home.
‘It was then for the first time that this very young girl from a small village in Africa, miles away from home, realised she was about to be sent to Italy to be forced into prostitution’, Mr Ames said.

‘She came to that gradual realisation, and she suddenly remembered hearing conversations between some men and their girls in Italy.
‘She couldn’t speak Italian and there was no question of her being able to work in Italy in the normal sense.
‘She became very upset and fearful of what awaited her.’
The gang’s plan was thwarted by Italian immigration officials, who stopped the woman on an obviously forged passport at Milan Airport and sent her straight back to the UK.
After she was detained by immigration officials, the woman led them to the alleged identity factory in Osoba’s flat in South Bermondsey, southeast London, and laptops which had been used to make false documents by Olayinka.

Mr Ames said the National Crime Agency launched Operation Visionary after quizzing the woman ‘to penetrate and stop the activities of an organised crime group based in Africa and here in England, which has as its aim the trafficking of vulnerable young women from Nigeria to European countries, including Italy and France for the purpose of prostitution’

Oluwafemi, of South Bermondsey, southeast London, Olayinka, of Peckham Rye, southeast London, and Obadiaru, of Brockley, south London denied conspiracy to traffic a person to the UK for the purpose of sexual exploitation, and conspiracy to traffic a person out of the UK for the purpose of sexual exploitation.
Oluwafemi, Olayinka, and Osoba, of South Bermondsey, southeast London, denied conspiracy to commit an offence of possessing false identity documents.

Many Nigerian women are facing the same condition outside the country. The pet project of Mrs Titi Abubakar WOTCLEF helped in no small measure intackling this ugly trend. Every day Nigerian girls are lured out of the country with a promise of better life abroad. I pray help comes the way of such people.

How women can be ring leaders of prostitution rings just blows my mind and I thought they were supposed to be sensitive and all maternal? To lure an innocent woman into a thing like this is just so unwomanly! To think of all the innocent women rotting away in some foreign country all because of failed promises. Reminds of Ed Sheeran's song 'Little Lady'

The truth is, most of their victims actually have a knowledge of what they are going into. They play along and have a plan B, which is to rescind the ealier agreement reached out of depiration to travel abroad, bcause they know it is illegal.

It is unfortunate how greed and quest for money has led these women into prostitution through deceit by those in this prostitution ring. A woman in my neighborhood has just abandoned her husband and her two sons and traveled to Russian without the consent of her husband.
And it's possible those that arranged her travelling didn't inform her that she is going into prostitution.

Women, Women, Women becareful the way you crave for money and materialism

Did she TRULY not know or is this story because she was caught and sent back to the UK? An Edo girl will not know about prostitution abroad? Anyway maybe cos they initially mentioned UK not Italy...eya.

To add to your submission, they put the people who helped them in trouble and seek asylum claiming they cant go back to Nigeria.

Anonymous said...

*Linda. Its time we stopped using the standards of Europe/ America to think and judge ourselves. If you take a survey in Nigeria, the conclusion will likely be that the lady begged to be "trafficked for prostitution purposes" so she could build a big house in Lekki and show all her neighbors that she has arrived.
Every person who has watched Nollywood movies knows this.
We hold the lady holding guns for armed robbres equally culpable in our legal system and we do not say they are tricked into it. why do we all defend this "victim" because the judge in England says so

Yes it's usually women that are ring leaders.
Stephanie Chijioke whom linda posted her marriage pictures here some months back was a prostitution ring leader in Dubai. She lived at deira and that's was her base. Recruiting naive girls from Nigeria with the promise of a job in Dubai when she herself is a dropout.

Why is this old witch not selling her own pussy to the highest bidder? These stealers of dreams preying on the poor and naive. They should be whipped with thorny lashes and made to apologize to the victim and her family.

Good God, is there no other way to make money? Look at the needs in Nigeria, could they not think up some venture that would help the country and its citizens and still earn an income? Nigeria is rife with opportunities for the enterprising person, nobody has to resort to this if they have a few coins to start up a small venture.

I am not suprised , this happens all the time . Go to Italy and Greece you will see plenty Nigerian prostitutes , and it's the same exact story as this womans case . These girls in Nigeria shouldn't trust people who claim they will help them , I think it's appalling that their is no awareness of this in Nigeria . The government agencies need to raise awareness because this is not the first and the last case .
Also the capital of Nigeria isn't Lagos it's actually Abuja mrs Ames .

Anonymous said...

That's a lie , u don't understand what these girls are going through . If she knew she was going to be a prostitute then she wouldn't have gone . Also did u not read that it was a woman who she had known for a very long time that told her about it . Awareness needs to be raised on these situations and the Nigerian immigration service need to fix up and they need to start working with the police and women rehabilitation centres .

Hi Hilary you can't believe it that a woman can be this cruel please my fellow Nigerian better believe it, evil is not a gender oriented characteristics, there is some where in the bible that says that the heart of man is desperatly wicked and man does not mean only the male specie both men and women has this innate quality of being evil at will. Just pray that "ajo mmadu akpona gi iru" which means in english pray that you don't encounter evil man or woman in your dealings.

Ride on my brother.
