Herbalist docked for allegedly failing to exorcise evil spirits
A 40-year-old man, Yusuf Afolabi, has appeared before an Ikorodu Magistrate’s Court for allegedly failing to exorcise evil spirits tormenting one Emenaka Anayo.
Afolabi, who claimed to be a herbalist, allegedly collected N70,000 from Anayo to do the job.
He pleaded not guilty to the four-count charge bordering on fraud, stealing and possession of fake currency before Magistrate A. Oshodi-Makanju.
The prosecutor, Sergeant Kemi Adeniran, told the court that the offence was committed between November and December 2016, at 12, Oba Oyefusi Street, Ikorodu, Lagos.
She said Afolabi fraudulently collected over N70,000 from Anayo on the pretext that he would exorcise the evil spirits tormenting him.
Adeniran averred that the accused knew that the representation of himself as someone who could cure his victim of evil spirits was false.
“He did not exorcise Anayo of the evil spirits after collecting over N70,000 from him and the accused, therefore, stole over N70,000 belonging to Anayo,” she told the magistrate.
Adeniran also said that the accused was arrested while in possession of 53 fake American Dollars of different denominations.
The magistrate granted the accused bail in the sum of N50,000 with two responsible sureties in like sum and adjourned the case to February 9, for mention.
