How UK Court Jailed Nigerian “Juju” Nurse Over Sex Trafficking

SHARE

A UK based Josephine Iyamu has been sentenced to 14 years in prison after she was found guilty of trafficking 5 Nigerian girls to Germany.

According to the BBC, Josephine forced her victims to swear oaths to hand over money to her, making them eat chicken hearts, drink blood containing worms, and have powder rubbed into cuts.

51-year-old Josephine had been campaigning to become a lawmaker in the Edo state house of assembly under the aegis of the All Progressives Party (APC).

Judge Richard Bond, during the sentencing, said Josephine showed “a complete disregard for the welfare of these women.”

She had exposed them to “real and significant” risk of death, he said, by making them travel on inflatable boats across the Mediterranean.

“You saw them not as living, breathing human beings but as commodities to earn you large sums of money,” he said.
