Girl shows scars in child trafficking trial

In Forced Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on September 28, 2012 at 9:17 am

A 15-year-old girl has shown a jury scars on her body which she alleges were the result of juju magic rituals.

The teenager has claimed she was made to swear an oath to obey a man now accused of trafficking children into the UK for prostitution.

Former security guard Osezua Elvis Osolase,42, from Beaumont Drive, Gravesend has denied 13 offences of trafficking, rape, false imprisonment and sexual activity with a child.

She is the second prosecution witness to give evidence at the trial at Canterbury Crown Court.

Earlier the jury heard from prosecutor Sarah Ellis how a 17-year-old from Nigeria became frightened after being told that a friend of her mother had sold her as a slave in Lagos.

She added: “The girl was scared also because she did not know what they were going to use her for and was mindful that in Nigeria they use human beings for sacrifice.”

The prosecution has alleged that Osolase posed a “Victor” and “Uncle”  and used witchcraft and juju rituals to bring young girls to Britain before sending them to Italy to become prostitutes.
