Franca Asemota from Benin, Edo State, who is currently facing trial on charges of human trafficking and sexual exploitation, is pictured at the airport being extradited to the UK earlier this year.
The 38-year-old was on August 3rd found guilty of eight counts of conspiracy to traffic people into sexual exploitation by a jury at Isleworth Crown Court. Ms Asemota forced dozens of teenage orphans into prostitution and slavery using the threat of witchcraft. See more pics after the cut..

She promised them jobs, education and a better life, then used ‘witchcraft’, threats and violence to force them in to the European sex trade. Read more about her here
