Correspondent Jenny Kleeman and producer James Jones reveal how human traffickers are using black magic to trap Nigerian women into a life of prostitution in Europe.

The women are made to swear an oath of loyalty to their traffickers in a\ ritual that they believe gives a Juju priest power over a part of their\ soul and also compels them to pay back extortionate sums of money. \Kleeman talks to the women involved where they work beside the \condom-strewn highways of Italy and in Nigeria, and meets the Juju \priests and the men responsible for their trafficking.

\'Shocking…fine journalism and a call for immediate action'

\ - The Guardian
\'A wretched story, well told.'
