[GIST]: British Couple Jailed For Enslaving A Nigerian Teenager For 2 Decades
A British couple have been arrested and sentenced to jail for human slavery.
Emmanuel Edit 61, and Antan Edit 58, have been sentenced to 6 years each for child cruelty, slavery, and illegal immigration. the couple brought in a 14-year old Nigeria teen into Britain in 1989 and promised him education and training, but neither of them had that in mind, as the young teenager was forced to do all their house chores and take care of their children for 2 decades without any word across to his family.
The couple seized his passport and threatened to call the police on him if he tried to run, and he would be arrested as an illegally immigrant. the victim with no idea of what to do remained at home and did what they said.
The victim now 40years felt trapped and dependent on the Edits, he was forced to work for 17 hours with no pay,had to eat alone and slept on the floor. But as of last month the couple were caught and arrested, they were found guilty and sentenced to 6 years each at Harrow crown court in Northwest London late on Monday.
