KAMDEN – A woman from Moorstown is accused of taking the passports of two people who were illegally in the country and then forcing them to provide work and other services.

Bolagi Balarinwa, 47, allegedly “knew that both victims had entered the United States illegally and was shielding them from revealing for their own financial gain,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey.

Balarinva also “abused and threatened to abuse the trial” against the alleged victims, according to a statement from the federal prosecutor’s office.

It also claimed that her wife, 65-year-old Isiyaka Balarinva, “took part in the scheme and benefited financially from the forced labor of the victims.”
