Prostitution


sorient_sigbaSorient “Freddy” Sigba, 54, was jailed yesterday after being convicted of offering his rich clients the services of east European women at premises in Holborn, central London.

The father of four, whose two older children are studying law and medicine, had worked as a teacher at the Geoffrey Chaucer school in Elephant and Castle, south-east London, before turning to the sex industry.

His clients were picked up by taxi drivers close to strip clubs in nearby Farringdon and taken to the brothel, where scantily clad women lounged on sofas waiting to be chosen. They were charged at least £300 an hour to spend time with the women, plus a £90 fee if they wanted to pay by card.

Sigba was arrested after two Scotland Yard undercover officers known as “John” and “Alex” visited the brothel, which was open between June 2006 and October 2011.

Gurnam Singh, 30, and Sukhdev Singh, 36, stalked their 26-year-old victim before pouncing on her in a doorway close to the Arches nightclub in Glasgow city centre.

The vice girl was saved by a cyclist who spotted the men dragging her by the wrists after her ordeal.

The Singhs had only been in Scotland a few days, having moved to a Sikh temple in the city’s Pollokshields in April.

They denied the attack during a trial at the High Court in Glasgow, but they were convicted by a jury and face lengthy jail terms.

Their victim recalled how she was approached by the pair near the Clydeside.

An alleged people trafficker cut the chest of a vulnerable 14-year-old girl with a razor during a series of “juju” witchcraft rituals aimed at terrifying young recruits into silence before selling them into prostitution across Europe, a court heard yesterday.

Osezua Osolase recruited and raped impoverished young Nigerian orphans and forced them to undergo West African rituals in which hair, nails and blood were removed to “cast a spell” over them and ensure their obedience, Canterbury Crown Court was told.

Mr Osolase, a Nigerian living in Northfleet, Kent, told one of three young victims – who overheard him trying to sell her off for €70,000 – that he had been bringing girls into Britain for 15 years, the court heard.

The 42-year-old then used a series of fake identities, addresses and falsified passports for the trafficked girls and escorted them on budget airlines to cities in Europe to work in the vice trade, said Ms Sarah Ellis, prosecuting.

An Asian takeaway owner has been jailed for 15 years after paying under-age girls for sex and inciting others to become child prostitutes.

Now detectives are also investigating possible links to the child sex ring gang in Rochdale who were jailed last week, it was revealed today.

Azad Miah, 44, targeted his victims in what the prosecution at Carlisle Crown Court described as a ‘cold, clinical exploitation of the desperate and vulnerable.’

The married father-of-four paid for the sexual services of two teenagers who were both introduced to him by the same woman.

One of those girls was encouraged to have sex with him out of desperation for cash when she was 15, while he had a sexual relationship with the other, a heroin addict, when she was aged between 15 and 17.

A jury also found the Bangladeshi national guilty yesterday of inciting three other girls, one as young as 12, into prostitution, while running a brothel above his former Spice of India shop in Carlisle city centre.

Miah groomed vulnerable white girls as young as 12 for paid sex and told one of his five child victims: ‘In my country it doesn’t matter about age’.

He saw the girls as ‘fresh meat’ and sent hundreds of text messages promising to give them drugs, alcohol and money in return for sex.

Those who defiantly resisted his advances were branded ‘white trash’ .

A girl who was abducted at the age of 14 and forced to work as a sex slave was yesterday praised for giving evidence which saw her abusers jailed.

The privately-educated teenager was picked up and plied with vodka and drugs, passed around groups of older men for sex and then forced to work as a prostitute.

Her ordeal highlights previously-aired fears that white schoolgirls are being groomed for underage sex by gangs of Asian men in northern England.

Former Labour MP Ann Cryer provoked a storm when she warned that the practice of arranged marriages helped tempt a criminal minority of Asian men into targeting young, white girls for sex.

After nine men were jailed over the sustained sexual abuse of their victim, Superintendent Paul Savill of Greater Manchester Police commended her bravery and said: ‘This young girl has been through an absolutely horrifying ordeal.

‘The level of abuse she has suffered is almost beyond belief. She has been treated like a commodity – beaten, threatened and sexually exploited.’
