Couple Arrested in the United Kingdom for Sex Trafficking.

From DDB A Nigerian couple, Lizzy Idahosa, 24, and her husband Jackson Omoruyi, 41 are currently standing trial in Britain for trafficking two women into and around the UK and inciting them to work as a prostitutes. One of the women who was 20 at the time, told Cardiff Crown Court how she was left with scars all over her body after being subjected to the 'juju ceremony', in which she was also forced to eat a live snail. Giving evidence, the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said:

'The juju man was standing there with a big knife, like you use for cutting grass. I was scared because I did not know what he was going to do to me. He used the blade to make marks on me. It was sore and it left me with scars.'
She was told that if she broke her vows of secrecy, she would become ill or infertile:

'Before I got to the house, I had no idea what would happen. When I arrived, Lizzy's sister and the juju man told me I would be swearing an oath. I was there for a couple of hours. They brought out a live snail and broke its shell, then they asked me to swallow it. They gave me some dirty water to drink.
I had to give my underwear to his assistant and the juju man cut the backs of my legs with a machete and marked me with a razor blade. It made me bleed and I had pain in my legs. I did everything they asked me because I really wanted to go to London.'

Idahosa denies a total of seven charges, which also include transferring criminal property. Her partner and co-accused Omoruyi denies three charges of inciting the women to become prostitutes and transferring criminal property.
The woman was arrested while working at the Ambassador Suite in Cardiff in June 2010. The case continues.

How Petrol Attendants Cheat their Customers .

 From Punch;
Mrs. Bisola Ayeni, a businesswoman in her early 40s confidently left her house at Egbeda (Lagos) with an almost empty tank heading for Ikeja. The red light of the fuel indicator was blinking nonstop but Ayeni knew the quantity of fuel in her tank would take her to the next available filling station where she had hoped to fill up her tank.

Indeed, as she got to the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Ayeni drove into the filling station and told the attendant to fill her car with N5,000 worth of fuel while she rummaged her handbag to bring out the money as well as pick a call. That was her undoing.

Ayeni would tell our correspondent that she didn’t bother to look at the pump while the sale was on because she didn’t envisage any foul act, besides she knew the level a N5,000 worth of fuel would rise to on her fuel gauge. Ayeni only managed a quick glance at the meter and when she saw that it was reading, she relaxed and enjoyed her discussion on the phone.

She said, “When I finished, I looked at the pump and I saw N5,000 on the price column, I paid him and drove away. I expected the light indicating low fuel to go off and the indicator to rise, but it didn’t happen.
“Even if the rise in the fuel indicator would be gradual, I expected a major shift. Lo and behold, the light never went off and the indicator never rose.
