A woman who was accused of trafficking a Nigerian woman in Ireland has been acquitted of the charges brought against her.
40-year-old Miss Joy Imasogie who was facing charges of human trafficking in Dublin, Ireland, following accusations of her bringing a Nigerian woman into the country for prostitution, was cleared of all the charges owing to lack of evidence.
According to the accuser, Imasogie forced her to sleep with up to 10 men each day in a bid to try to pay off a debt of €50,000 (about N26,250,000) which she owed her.

Imasogie had pleaded 'not guilty' at the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court after she was accused of forcing the woman into prostitution between March 2006 and April 2008.
The presiding judge, Patricia Ryan, asked the jury to find Imasogie 'not guilty' after the evidences tendered were found to be unclear and full of contradictions.
The unnamed accuser said she had stopped working as a prostitute after breaking off contact with Imasogie in 2008, but investigations showed she continued working as a prostitute, even advertising her 'services' on the internet.

It was also brought to the judge's notice that the accuser had been with Imasogie's husband with the sum of €14,000 (about N7,350,000) on a certain date after she claimed to have cut ties with Imasogie.
The accuser claimed she had been wretched and living with her grandmother in Benin City, Nigeria, back in 2006, before Imasogie offered to take her to work in her hair salon, which turned out to mean engaging in prostitution.
