A sex trafficking ring which used voodoo rituals to force Nigerian women into prostitution has been busted by the Spanish police.
According to the police, six traffickers has been arrested and four of the victims freed.
The women who had travelled across northern Africa to get to Spain illegally, were recruited in Nigeria, where they were enticed with false promises of employment, only for them to be swept into the sex trafficking world and threatened with voodoo from Nigeria upon arrival.
The traffickers kept the women submissive by performing black magic rituals in Nigeria that sometimes involved 'animal sacrifice'.
They used the women's nail clippings and locks of hair to convince them that they had been placed under a spell 'so they would do everything asked of them, under the threat of death to them or their family', according to police.
