May 7, 2015 – Pictures: Nigerian Doctor & Nurse Wife Facing Trial In London UK For Enslaving Houseboy For 24 Years

Meet Doctor Emmanuel Edet and his wife Antan who are currently facing trial in London for human trafficking and slavery.

The 60-year-old UK-based physician and his 58-year-old wife allegedly used an orphan Ofonime Inukinto as slave in their mansion for 24 years.

The 39-year-old orphan reportedly fled the couple’s mansion while they were away on Christmas holiday to Nigeria last year.

The victim said he started living with the couple at age 12 before they relocated to Israel when he turned 14. From there, they moved on to London and changed his name to their name in order to facilitate him getting a UK visa.

Inuk who narrated his 24-year slavery ordeal at the Harrow Crown Court house almost brought the jury to tears.

He said he was forced to sleep on the kitchen floor on a dirty mattress that was discarded by a hospital.

He was scared when he realised that the couple would not pay for him education.

The jury was told Mr Inuk escaped after hearing about another case in the media while the couple travelled to Nigeria for Christmas. He contacted a charity which tipped off police who were stunned to find him alone in their £450,000 four-bedroom terrace home in Perivale, monitored by a CCTV camera.

He was forced to wash clothes by hands because the couple told him it was too expensive to use a laundry machine.

At a time he tried to return to his family in Nigeria but he couldn’t because he was totally dependent on them. At a point, he tried to take a computer course at the college but the Edets stopped him.

In a police interview, he said they call him the ‘house boy.

‘My role is to stay in the house … I always do everything in the house, sir … clean, cook, wash car, the gardening, ironing … or maybe like a slave. That’s called slavery.’ – 39-year-old Inuk told police.

    39-year old house-bound for 24 years! Wat am I hearing? Is it dat d couple did cast him under a spell or dat he is naturally down in d head, short of independent thoughts? I marvel!

    But 2 use a grown man dis way is d basest degree of slavery, breaking d man in2a dog. Dis coupl did not try @ all! They didnt evn consida his personal needs: taking a wife & raising up a family of his own. Yet d man was compliant enof 2b degraded 4a whole 24 yrs. In fact, juju must be somwher in dis story. It’s not yet finishd.

    How wonder how you people judge blindly. If you understand an read the middle of the line very well , you will know the complainant is lying . You were obtained a British passport which is a freedom to achieve all if you are willing and you failed to live the house until 24years later, same as free colleges course , you never leave. There was no mention of taking care of the couple’s children , you choose to leave the because you heared a similar case on the TV. Liar, I have seen various cases here in UK . Never mentioned if he his being paid salary and how does he met all his expenses. I am sure the truth will soon come out . After 24yrs with the couple , his aim to spoil their Pin no and take away their livelihood, probably aiming to claim their house as a form of damages. Africans, I do advice people that it is better to waste money on opel than bringing your family or in law to take of your children in UK, otherwise it will end in disgrace

    @ Dem, It is obvious its you that chose to read and understand the writeup from your own perspective, at no point did the writer say he was giving a UK passport, rather he said they changed his name in other to procure him a UK visa….
