A local Islamic cleric, popularly called Alfa has been charged to court in Isolo, Lagos, for duping a woman of N350,000 and having a 3-day marathon sex with her under the pretext of casting an evil spirit out of her.
The 42 year old Alfa, Jamiu Mukaila, it was learnt, approached her that he had a revelation from God concerning making her life better.
The cleric, who paid the victim (Bose) a visit at her home at Ire-Akari Road in Isolo, Lagos, said she was possessed by evil spirit called mammy water (mermaid) and that she needed deliverance to cast out the evil spirit so that favour will come her way.
According to Bose, part of the condition he gave her was that she would pay N350,000 which would be used to buy spiritual materials and that she must sleep with him for three days.
She said he assured her that she would enjoy favours after he had worked on her and that she would equally get a husband of her choice after the deliverance.
Bose revealed that she did not know what came over her immediately after the encounter as she paid the N350,000 he requested and allowed him have sex with her for three days before she came to her senses.
She stormed the Aswani Police Division to report the case, the moment she realised that she had been duped.
Mukaila was arrested and taken to the station where he allegedly confessed to committing the crimes.
However he pleaded not guilty when charged to court with stealing and obtaining sex under false pretence under the Criminal Code.
He was granted bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum and remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail, and the case was adjourned till 5 August, 2015 for trial.
