Nigerian Woman Brought to Texas and Enslaved by Couple

Chudy Nsobundu, 56, and his wife Sandra, 50, are a Texas couple who were arrested on Monday and charged with forced labor, visa fraud, withholding documents and harboring conspiracy. They brought a Nigerian woman to the United States and made her a slave.

They made her believe she would be a nanny to their children. In addition, the victim would get beaten for putting the wrong pair of socks on one of the couple's five adopted children. She would be denied access to fresh food, water and medical care. The victim, 38, was living in Lagos when she was contacted by Sandra Nsobundu in 2012. She worked for the couple for a year in Nigeria before they brought her to the United States.

She was told she would be paid $100 a month to take care of their children. Yet, she wasn't paid and was expected to work from 5:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. every day. She could not sit down during her workday, nor could she watch T.V. She was only allowed to eat leftover food and could not use fresh milk for her tea, she had to strain milk from used cereal.

The couple then forced her to sleep on the floor with their two 3-year-olds because the couple told her she was "too smelly" for a bed. The couple even called her "the idiot." They took away all her possessions and passport. Furthermore, Sandra threatened to kill her if she didn't take good care of the children.

The horrifying treatment was discovered when the victim called her bank in Nigeria in October 2015. She found out she had not been paid by the couple since arriving in the U.S. a month earlier. Someone then notified the National Human Trafficking Resource Center. The next month, she left the home with a caseworker from the YMCA International Trafficked Persons Assistance Program.

If the couple is convicted, they face 60 years in prison and $1 million in fines.
