A Congolese refugee living in Lexington says in a federal lawsuit that she was held in servitude by another Congolese refugee.
The lawsuit says Chigangu could not leave because Ndusha had control of her money and immigration documents. Chigangu was finally able to escape in 2013 after calling the national human-trafficking hotline.
Ndusha also is charged in Fayette District County with the fraudulent use of a credit card that Chigangu's attorney says belonged to his client.
Ndusha told the Herald-Leader the allegations in both cases are untrue.
