A voodoo-obsessed mother who unveiled what she claimed was her baby daughter’s disembodied fingers during her trial has been convicted of a £1m benefit scam.

Thats all Good, but we Jamaicans have our shameful moments too…, Ross Kemp on gangs (jamaican one), Jamaica Hospital, … I’m trying to think of the latest news article linked to Yardie Crime, but can’t think of one, has it been that long, surely not? heres hoping huh!
I am more worried about where those fingers came from. Should the authorities not want to know?
And those of you that want to be Jamaicans becos of such stories; I’ll rather remain a proud Nigerian! Nigeria, my Nigeria; the greatest Black nation on Earth!!
When you have a moment look up the word “sarcasm”.
They were not being serious.
i think her juju man told her that if she brought out those finger in court, she would win the case, it sad to see how far people would go for money as far as sacrifing children for money
Hum……people beware, you see what all these people can do becos of money?.It is so obvious that this one can kill anyone around her all becos of money. What a shame.She is such an heartless pig.
Ayway sha, me im still proud to be a Nigerian nothing can take that away from me.
no one should blame her because she said it was because of “vodoo” causes. its not her fault
