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.

The Cable reports that 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.

    Anything goes in Nigeria! The political space is filled with people of questionable characters yet APC-led government claims to be fighting corruption.

    Is this Jezebel Juju Nurse not a mother and grandmother? Heartless!
    Double her jail term!

    What a wicked woman! There are a lot of them, especially from Edo state. They would come home and build houses for their parents and the parents and other relatives would look the other way. Some families even see it as foolish not to grab the opportunity when it comes.

    And she wants to be a lawmaker! I bet you she would have won
