A Northfleet security guard – who pocketed £80,000 by trading in child sex slaves – will have to repay... just £8.38!
And Osezua Osolase, 43, who is serving a 20-year jail sentence has also been given eight weeks to arrange for the bank transfer.
He had been convicted at Canterbury Crown Court last year on five counts of trafficking young girls, rape and sexual activity with a child using juju magic.
"You were dealing in exploitation and misery and degradation" - Judge Adele Williams
"You have been convicted on clear and compelling evidence of trafficking two girls in and out of the UK."
The Nigerian girls – aged 14 and 16 – had given evidence during the six-week trial, telling how they had been lured by Osolase of a better life in Britain.
A third victim, aged 17, had revealed how she had been trafficked out of the UK.
The judge said the former guard at a trendy London fashion shop had used juju magic to ensure their obedience and silence.
He had terrified the young orphan girls into believing they could die if they ever revealed they were being shipped out to Italy and Spain to work as prostitutes.
