They are the first people in Ireland to be convicted of human trafficking for a prostitution ring and now Alicia Edosa and Edith Enoghaghase are finding out for themselves what it feels like to be trapped after receiving jail terms of over five years.

But an extraordinary story lies behind the headlines of a Midlands sex ring and the madams who ran it, a story that stretches all the way back to slave markets in Nigeria and the practice of voodoo.

Nicola Tallant chats to journalist Eamon Dillon about the human sex slaves working in Irish prostitution and the profits made from putting them to work.
