‘SEX SLAVE FORCED TO EAT LIVE SNAKE’
ACCUSED: Jackson Omoruyi ( top) and his wife Lizzy Idahosa are said to have tricked two women into having
sex with strangers A WOMAN caught up in an alleged voodoo sex ring was made to eat a live snake while wearing just her bra and panties, a court heard.
She was allegedly tricked into having sex with strangers every day after eating the reptile in a bizarre witchcraft ritual.
And the woman claims the semi-naked feeding ritual was part of a ritualistic “juju” ceremony.
She said she was brought to Britain and made to have sex with HUNDREDS of men and she believed she would go mad or die if she refused.
She told Cardiff Crown Court: “It was not a big snake, but it was alive. I just closed my eyes and put it in my mouth.
“When I asked why, I was told it was naughty to ask questions and told I should just do it.”
Lizzy Idahosa, 24, and her husband Jackson Omoruyi, 41, are accused of exploiting two women – to make more than £70,000.
Idahosa allegedly arranged for them to travel 4,500 miles from the West African country – forcing them to go through juju ceremonies before they left home.
The woman, 29, told the court: “The juju house was horrible. I was taken into a room full of men and they told me to get undressed and put on a white cloth.
“I had to cut my nails and shave my eyebrows and hair in my private places. Then I had to put all the cuttings in a pot and give them to the juju man.
“Then he told me to eat the snake and an egg and drink some dirty water. After that, he made seven marks on my body using a razor blade.”
The woman was allowed into the UK after telling immigration officials she was a lesbian and would be sacrificed if she didn’t leave Nigeria.
But the court heard that when she arrived in the UK she was also made to work in brothels and massage parlours up and down the country.
The women both claim they felt they had “no choice” because she had taken part in a juju ceremony.
The women were found following an immigration raid on a massage parlour in Cardiff.
Idahosa and Omoruyi were later arrested at their home in Brockley, south London.
The pair deny seven charges of trafficking persons into and within the UK for sexual exploitation and inciting prostitution and disguising criminal property.
The trial continues.
