Pictured! Nigerian Nurse Convicted In The UK For Trafficking Women To Work As Prostitutes In Britain

A Nigerian nurse based in Britain has been convicted in the UK of trafficking five Nigerian women into Germany to work as prostitutes after subjecting them to voodoo rituals. According to BBC News, Josephine Iyamu, 51, forced the women to swear oaths to hand over money to her during "juju" ceremonies.
Iyamu, who lives in London, was convicted of five counts of arranging or facilitating travel for sexual exploitation at Birmingham Crown Court.
Jurors also found her guilty of perverting the course of justice.
In exchange for facilitating the travel, Iyamu charged the victims between 30,000 euros ($35,000, £27,000) and 38,000 euros, and then made them work as prostitutes in order to repay the debt.
The voodoo rituals saw the women forced to eat chicken hearts, drink blood containing worms, and have powder rubbed into cuts, the court heard.
Andy Young, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said:

"Josephine Iyamu exploited five vulnerable women by promising them a better life in Europe. Instead she treated the women like property and forced them to become prostitutes."
Iyamu, who was born in Liberia, will be sentenced on Wednesday.
