They were coerced into leaving home with voodoo threats, then exploited as prostitutes to pay back 30,000 euro (£26,209) debts.

According to Europol, the criminal cartel had links to the Eiye brotherhood, one of the most influential fraternities in Nigeria.

The gang was allegedly operating clandestinely all over the world – pumping money back into the network.

Some 89 people were arrested during raids last November, including a famous, but as yet unnamed DJ, accused of acting as a pimp across a number of provinces.

He was caught flying back into Spain after recording a music video.

Detectives at Europol described it as one of the largest operations against human trafficking in Europe.
