See Nigerian Woman Who Used Witchcraft To TraffickOrphans To UK (Photo)
A woman who forced scores of trafficked teenage orphans into the S3x trade using the threat of witchcraft faces years in jail.
A court was told Asemota lured the girls - who were as young as 14 and mainly orphans from remote Nigerian villages - with promises of jobs and education.
She then used “witchcraft”, threats and violence to force them into the European S3x trade.
Her audacious gang even managed to snatch back two girls who had been rescued and placed in in foster care in Worthing, West SusS3x.
A jury at Isleworth Crown Court today convicted Asemota of eight counts of conspiracy to traffick people into S3xual exploitation.
Investigators spent around three years trying to locate Asemota until they successfully tracked her down to Nigeria on March 25, 2015, and she was arrested and extradited.
They located her after two girls, who had been placed with foster parents in 2012 in Worthing by the immigration authorities, were kidnapped.
But it took less than 12 hours of deliberation for the jury to find her guilty of the eight conspiracy counts.
Asemota, of no fixed abode, will be sentenced later this month.
