23yr Old Lady Confesses - My Pastor Sister Lured Me To Prostitution


A 23-year-old-lady identified as Florence Abu, has opened up on how she was trafficked to Russia for prostitution when she was 17 by an Edo church pastor through a Russian based alleged female human trafficker.
The war against human trafficking intensified in Edo State last week after whistle blowers informed security agents about the arrival of a Russian based alleged human trafficker,Vivian Ehioze.

Consequently, she was arrested alongside her brother, Pastor Endurance Ehioze, said to be her recruiter. One of their victims was alleged to be a 23-year-old-lady, Florence Abu, said to have been trafficked to Russia for prostitution when she was 17.
They were alleged to have been involved in trafficking several girls to Russia with Endurance allegedly using his position as a pastor to facilitate the recruitment of the girls from church.
The state Commissioner of Police, Haliru Gwandu, whose men arrested the suspected traffickers, described the raid as a boost to the fight against human trafficking.

While victim Florence, who was deported to Nigeria after she had suffered some strange ailment, is being treated at a hospital, Vivian and Emmanuel are cooling their feet in prison after a magistrate court in Ekiadolor asked them to be remanded.
They were remanded on a two-count-charge by Chief Magistrate E I. Bazuaye. The suspects, and two others still at large, were said to have committed the offense sometime in January 2013 at Idunwina Quarters, Ekiadolor, near Benin-City. They were alleged to have connived to procure Florence for the purpose of prostitution and other s*xual exploitation.
Meanwhile, Florence narrated her story to Vanguard newspaper, read below;



“It all started in 2012 when a pastor in my church, Endurance Ehioze, called me to say he wanted to see me. He asked me if I will like to travel out of the country and I said yes. I told him that I was constrained financially; so he said money was not the problem and that he had a sister abroad that will finance my trip.
“He further told me that I could pay off the sister off in less than two months after my arrival abroad. He added that I shouldn’t be afraid of making money abroad since and I am a good singer and hair stylist. The pastor further told me that I might be lucky to even come across a white man that will support me”, the victim started.
“Later, he (Endurance) gave me her sister’s number in Russia called Vivian Ehioze. When I flashed her, she called me and introduced herself. She asked me if I was interested in leaving the country, saying as long as I was interested I should get my passport ready which I did by borrowing N30,000 from LAPO, and I called her to tell her that my passport was ready.
“She asked me to give the passport to Pastor Endurance (the brother) as he will handle everything. She gave me words of encouragement that everything will be fine. Few days later, she called again to say I should pack my luggage and take it to her mother’s place enroute to Lagos. But when I got to the mother’s place, she told me it was late to travel to Lagos that same day.
“The next morning, she woke me up and said there must be an agreement between us because many girls, when they get to Russia, don’t often pay her daughter back the money spent to take them abroad. So, she said, she must take something from me as an oath and that once I finished paying her daughter, I will have to pay her some money as well.
“I was surprised that Endurance, who is a pastor, encouraged me to undertake such oath. I had thought that as a Christian we will do it the Christian way. Finally, the mother took strands of hair from my head, armpit, private part and she also collected my pant for the oath taking.
“When I arrived Lagos, the next day, an elder brother of Madam Vivian (name withheld) came to pick me from the park and took me to a hotel. He brought out a slip of paper from his pocket and said it was my visa application and that it was genuine. He told me to relax and that I should use what I have to get what I wanted. I was shocked when he took my phone according to an order from Vivian so that nobody might call to discourage me from proceeding on the trip. I asked him how I will be able to communicate with my mother since he had collected my phone and he assured me that Endurance (pastor) will be the link man if I wanted to speak to my mother.
“Immediately thereafter, he brought out a condom and asked that I should pull off my dress. I resisted him but he forcefully had his way. He said it should be a secret between the two of us and threatened that if I disclosed it to any one, something terrible will happen to me. He took me to his house and asked me to pretend about it. For the two weeks period I waited for my visa, it was hell for me in the house. He molested me regularly but thankfully my visa came in February 2013.
“When I arrived in Russia, Vivian came to pick me up at the airport and she took me to her place in Moscow. The first thing she did was to take my passport away from me. She said the passport now belonged to her. The third day, at about 9pm, she asked me to dress up. She took me on a road walk during which I met several Nigerian girls prostituting on the street and that was how I was lured into prostitution.
“I started paying the money ($45,000) and once I finished paying, I was deported to Nigeria. Apart from that, I was inflicted with a strange ailment. Life was so unbearable for me so much so that I was put under medication for almost one year. The doctors treating me couldn’t handle my case. The doctors said other people with worse health situations had been treated and wondered why my own case was different.
“When I couldn’t bear it, I had to tell my mother about it. It was my mother that used to send me black soap and cream from Nigeria through courier to treat the ailment. At a point, it was my mother that was sending money to me to pay my house rent. Life there became difficult so much so that I had to go to Nigerian embassy in Russia for help before I was deported.”
Asked if she was aware she was being trafficked for prostitution, Forence said: “I was 17 years old then. My madam lied to me that life was far better over there and that if I didn’t want to stay in Russia, I could travel to another country. I made all the credits I needed at O’ level but there was no money to further my education; so when the opportunity came, I jumped at it.
“Besides, my mum was owing a huge debt and I wanted to help her because of the embarrassment. But what my madam told me was completely different from what I met in Russia. I was molested to point that I took ill. I was using gas water because of acute chest pain arising from the torture I received from my madam. Sometimes I will just collapse. I was always on drugs. And the she abandoned me in Russia and came to Nigeria to look for other girls to traffick. I couldn’t cope with life; so I was deported with other girls who were going through the same situation as l. If it is possible, some of our girls in Russia will trek back home because the suffering there is huge, some of them are beggars there.
“I want to advise young girls hoping to be taken abroad to work that all that glitters is not gold. Yes, abroad is beautiful, but if you are going to be trafficked by someone, you should cry out. Life there is not what they paint to you. Many girls out there are dead and their parents think they are alive. Out of the 300 girls deported in the last one year, about 100 of them are HIV positive.
“Our girls should learn trades and empower themselves rather than going abroad for prostitution. I want to thank Edo State Commissioner of Police because he has fought for me by apprehending my traffickers (madam and her brother). I came in contact with an NGO (Solomon Okoduwa) through one girl called Gift when we were at the NAPTIP detention centre in Lagos. Okoduwa has been helping me to settle down and was instrumental to the arrest of my madam and her brother.”
Corroborating the victim’s story, her other, Madam Josephine Abu, who wept profusely, said, “My daughter was assisted to travel through Endurance our pastor, who is the second in command to the senior pastor of our church. The suffering was too much for me to bear.
“He said since I was indebted to some people and I could not pay, he would help my daughter to travel abroad. He (Endurance) assured me that since my daughter is a hair stylist, she will make money in Russia. For a long time, I didn’t hear from my daughter until she called to say she was seriously ill and could not bear staying in Russia any longer and had to be deported.”

See the first ever gay Muslim wedding takes place in the United Kingdom

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
A gay Muslim man and his partner have become the first Muslims to wed in a same sex marriage in Britain. 24-year-old Jahed Choudhury married his male lover, 19-year-old Sean Rogan, who saved him from committing suicide years ago.

Jahed from West Midlands grew up feeling ostracized by the Muslim community because he was gay. Because of his sexual preference, he was considered the black sheep of the family and was sent on a religious pilgrimage hoping that would 'cure' him of being gay.

After years of being bullied, he contemplated taking his life and was sitting on a town bench in Darlaston, crying, when he met Sean.

Sean comforted him and they began dating. They finally got married in a ceremony in Walsall registry office, both wearing traditional Bangladeshi wedding clothes.

Jahed said: "I was crying on a bench and Sean came over and asked if I was okay. He gave me hope at one of my lowest points and he's stood by me all the way. I stood out like a sore thumb - I never liked football, I preferred watching fashion shows on TV. I remember feeling trapped. It went all over school, people would spit on me, empty the rubbish bins on me, call me pig and the Muslim people would shout 'harum' - which is a very nasty insult in my language."

Jahed was made to date girls, change his social circle, take medication and even go on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh in a bid to change his sexual orientation but nothing worked. Until he overdosed on pills and sat on that bench crying, that was when his life turned around. His wedding to Sean was well attended by family and friends of both men. Jahed's mother, sister, older brother and cousin witnessed the wedding, as did Mr Rogan's mother, two sisters and older brother.

Jahed said: "My mum has always been so supportive. Without her I would not be here today. It was lovely for both out families to be there. We get on really well. It was just close friends and family who were invited as I did not want a big wedding. It was just perfect the way it was."

After the wedding, Jahed said they will have a huge party in Darlaston then go to Spain for a week of honeymoon. He further disclosed that Sean is considering converting to Islam, but that they would struggle to find a mosque. He said he told Sean to convert on his behalf and also to wear the Bangladeshi traditional attire for their wedding and he agreed to both.

He said: "The outfits are traditional Muslim-Bangladeshi outfits. Everyone wears them for a wedding at home. I told Sean I thought it would be very nice to wear them and he agreed. Also, they look very pretty. Sean is considering converting to Islam. I asked him if he would on my behalf. We would not be able to find a place of worship however. We would not be welcomed by any mosques. I have heard about the liberal mosque in Berlin that opened recently where they are a lot less traditional. It sounds fantastic. I really want to visit, and wish we could have somewhere like that here."

The newlyweds and their families have received a number of death threats since the wedding, but they are determined to ignore them.

Jahed said: "We have had death threats against us and our families. People telling me they are going to kill me and that I should never have been born. They are really vile, horrible comments. But we are so happy we are able to just brush them off. We’ve had an awful lot of support too."

He added: "I want to say to all people going through the same thing that it's okay - we're going to show the whole world that you can be gay and Muslim."

Neighbours' shocked after 3 yr old toddler stabbed to death in Dublin

A murder investigation has been launched after a three-year-old boy was found stabbed to death in an apartment in south Dublin.
The toddler is understood to have been stabbed a number of times, including in the chest, at the Riverside apartments, in Kimmage, Dublin 12.

Emergency services were alerted to the scene at around 7pm last night after receiving a number of 999 calls about a woman in a distressed state.
When paramedics arrived, they discovered the three-year-old dead in a room in the apartment.
The child's mother, aged in her 40s, was also discovered with apparent knife wounds.

She was rushed to St James's Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
It is understood the child and mother are of Middle Eastern descent.
Senior sources last night told the Irish Independent the child was stabbed in the upper-chest with a kitchen knife. Emergency services personnel had to break down the door in order to get immediate access to the apartment. When they entered, they discovered the child dead in the bedroom of the property. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

This morning, gardai remained at the scene awaiting the arrival of the pathologist and the garda technical bureau.
Two candles burned quietly at the entrance to the small Riverside apartment complex.
One small teddy bear was positioned beside them, and on the gate someone had left a small cuddly giraffe with the message 'Why???? RIP' pinned to it on a sheet of paper.
A resident of Riverside apartments who did not want to be named said he had met the mother in the apartment complex a few times, and that she told him she was a doctor from Iraq.

He also said the little boy always seemed happy.
"The police and fire brigade were here when I arrived at around seven o'clock, and I was thinking there was a fire," he said.
The man said the woman has been living in Riverside for around two or three years.
"People are shocked. She would leave here in the car and the child was always with her. He was always happy, and talked," he said.
A team from the garda technical bureau arrived shortly after 8.30am this morning to begin the grim task of carrying out a forensic examination of the scene.
A source said investigating detectives are following a definite line of inquiry.
Officers were at the hospital last night and were waiting to speak to the woman following her treatment.
"Emergency personnel were initially told that the child went into cardiac arrest, but when paramedics entered the property they discovered the infant deceased with stab wounds," a senior source said.
A Garda spokesperson said: "Gardaí in Crumlin are investigating a homicide of an infant child.
"An adult female was also injured in the incident and has been taken to St James's Hospital where her condition is described as serious."
The spokesperson said the discovery was made when gardaí were called to an address in Poddle Park.
"The infant was pronounced dead at the scene," the spokeswoman said.
Locals described hearing a distressed woman screaming in the apartment complex before emergency services arrived.
"I wouldn't know the woman well, she only had one child as far as I know.
"It's absolutely tragic, I'm not even sure of what happened yet," one local woman said.
Flowers were last night placed outside the apartment where the young boy died.
Local Sinn Féin councillor Ray McHugh said his thoughts were with the young victim's family.
Speaking at the scene, Mr McHugh said: "It's an absolute tragedy.
"The residents around here are in total disbelief and shocked.
"My sympathies are with the young child's family at this time."
The injured woman was believed to work in a Dublin hospital.
A number of garda cars remained at the Riverside apartment complex beside Poddle Park last night while the scene was sealed off pending a forensic examination.
The State Pathologist was notified.
An incident room has been established at Crumlin garda station and investigating detectives are appealing for information.
Last night, Dr Umar al-Qadi, imam of the Blanchardstown mosque, said: "This is a tragedy which is extremely heart-breaking and my thoughts and prayers go out to all the family members and also the community which has been affected by it.
"A three-year-old innocent child has lost his life in a horrendous way.
"I pray for the child that he will be in peace."

Nigerian Man Jailed For Almost $1m Fraud In US

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
When Delta Airlines international flight 9348 landed in November 2016 in New York, federal agents were waiting at the gate to arrest a Nigerian man accused of bilking East Texans and others out of nearly $1 million.

Fawaz Olarenwaju Animasaun, 27, is one of two people named in a federal indictment for charges of aggravated identity theft and conspiracy to commit bank fraud, as well as aiding and abetting.

He was traveling to the U.S. from Ghana, by way of Amsterdam, when he was arrested at the airport.
Just a few weeks later, the 7-foot-1-inch tall Nigerian was an inmate at the Gregg County Jail awaiting his turn in a federal courtroom.

Under a plea agreement finalized in May, Animasaun is serving three years in prison on the conspiracy charge. He is ordered to pay $930,737.60 in restitution to three financial companies.

Court documents show Animasaun will pay $135,989 to  East Texas-based Austin Bank as part of that restitution.

In addition, the agreement states that Northern Trust Company is due $46,800 and UMB Financial Corporation is due $747,948.60.

Animasaun and his alleged accomplice Idowu Temitope Omolade, also from Nigeria, are believed to be involved in at least 21 fraudulent wire transfers between April and August of 2012.
And that may not be all.

A rare footnote made by a U.S. Attorney in the 21-page federal indictment reads, “Because the purpose of this complaint is to set forth only those facts necessary to establish probable cause to arrest, I have not described all the relevant facts and circumstances of which I am aware.”

The indictment says the purpose of the conspiracy was to “… unlawfully obtain money through unauthorized transfers of funds from bank accounts and brokerage accounts.”

To do that, the Nigerian men allegedly impersonated actual account holders in emails exchanged with banking and financial services personnel. In those email conversations, the indictment says the suspects “… harvested details about the target accounts, including account balances, and obtained wire transfer instructions.” With those details, the suspects were then able to initiate a wire transfer without the account holder’s knowledge or authorization.

The indictment said that the money was moved through a series of accounts using “money mules,” or people who may or may not have known they were assisting in the transfer.

Other financial institutions affected include Wells Fargo, UMB Bank, UMB Financial Corporation, Northern Trust and Northern Trust Corporation.

Animasaun was transferred out of the Gregg County Jail on June 28, in the custody of the U.S. Marshals. Federal Bureau of Prisons records show he is now in a detention center in Brooklyn, New York, and will remain there until June 2019. He could have received up to 30 years in prison for each count of the indictment.

The indictment states that Animasaun kept Omolade informed of the progress, and told him when to expect specific wire transfers. Omolade is not listed as a federal inmate, and there is no record of an arrest. Aliases listed in the indictment include “Michael Chernick” and “CLICKIDONLINE.”

Animasaun is listed in the indictment with four aliases, including “Larry Hoover” and “Slim Husstle Olanraywaju.”
