2 fetish priests arrested for taking millions to make politician win election but he lost

Two spiritualists who were arrested for cheating a parliamentary candidate of millions in exchange for the promise to help him win the election claim they used the money to purchase materials for various sacrifices, including black, brown, and white calves, rams, lavender perfume, and rings.

Following a petition to look into the matter, Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrested the suspects, Alfa Abiodun Ibrahim and Wale Adifala.

The suspects were apprehended, according to the anti-graft agency, for stealing N24 million from an aspirant member of the House of Representatives in Ekiti State.

The politician had been assured that they would force him to win, but instead, he came in last.

One of the suspects, Adifala, admitted to obtaining the funds during questioning, along with another N2.9 million, which he claimed was used to purchase the aforementioned things, all of which were used to perform sacrifices at various periods.

He was cited as stating, “I also connected on the issue with Ifawole Ajibola (at large), and we proceeded with the sacrifices together, until we were arrested by the EFCC.

The second suspect, Ibrahim, also admitted to taking the money from the ambitious politicians but was quick to explain that he and his accomplice fulfilled their part of the bargain but the rest was left for God to handle, so they can’t be blamed.

“Our own was just to pray and do the necessary sacrifices, which we did, and to leave the rest to God. However, along the line, the zoning for the reps seat was taken away from Oye-Ekiti to Ikole-Ekiti,” he stated.

Despite their explanations, the EFCC said Ibrahim and Adifala would be processed for court depending on the outcome of an ongoing investigation.

In an earlier report, a 62-year-old herbalist was arrested for allegedly raping a mentally challenged teenage girl who was brought to him for spiritual healing.

The Nigerian man, Godwin Sanda, who hails from the Zangun community in the Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State, was arrested on Saturday, July 23, 2022.

His arrest followed allegations that he took advantage of the girl’s situation to have sexual intercourse with her forcibly.

He had advised the victim’s mother to go home and leave her child with him to take her medication.

Adamawa Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Suleiman Nguroje, confirmed Sanda’s arrest.

“The police have arrested a 62-year-old herbalist for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl suffering from mental disorder brought to the suspect for possible medication.

“The man had advised her mother who brought her to return home pending the time he would cure the girl of her ailment. Taking advantage of the mom’s absence, the herbalist allegedly had carnal knowledge of the girl over the course of her five-day stay at his place.

“After raping her, according to him, the victim escaped from his premises and returned to her parent’s house. The parent, who saw the traumatized girl, reported the matter to the police in Numan,” Nguroje said.

He was expected to be taken to court to answer for the alleged crime after the police have finished with their investigations.
