Lucy Adeniji brought two children and a 21-year-old woman to the UK from Africa illegally and used them as servants. She was convicted of 17 different counts at Isleworth Crown Court. The mother-of-five is the first person to be jailed for trafficking children into the UK for domestic servitude. In a case that has been likened to modern-day slavery, Adeniji smuggled the three victims into Britain on false passports, and used them as servants at her home in Ray Gardens, Barking.
An illegal immigrant herself, Adeniji, 44 - originally from Nigeria - had told the victims' parents they would have a better life in the UK, but instead viciously beat them if they failed to please her. The abuse only came to light when one of the victims escaped from Adeniji's home after being beaten.

Or, maybe; just maybe, there is no body there. Maybe we are the ones to protect our children and ourselves. And that, I believe, is the fact. We are the ones, and unless we standup and demand the protection of our children from these superstition nuts, these religious people will continue to commit these crimes. There is no God out there waiting to help us. The helping hand we are look for is at the end of our own arm.
