Prophetess charged over failed marriage love potion

children's day


A self-proclaimed prophetess, Chinyere Nwachukwu, has been
remanded in Kirikiri Prisons in Lagos State, western Nigeria, over an
alleged fake love potion prepared for a woman, Amarachi Egekonye, 36,
seeking for a man that would marry her.

 
PM news reports that 32-year old
Chinyere was arrested by the police at Ikotun Division, Lagos and
charged with obtaining money under false pretence and stealing under the
Criminal Code before Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court, Lagos.
 
The
victim alleged that the prophetess told her that she was possessed with
certain demons that were preventing her from getting married and to
ward off the evil, Chinyere  demanded for N70,000 and MTN recharge cards
worth N12,000 from her for the love potion and other spiritual
assistance she would render.
 
Amarachi said when she
agreed, Chinyere took her to her Arida-Ikotun prayer house where she
collected the money and the MTN cards for ‘spiritual communication’.
 
Thereafter,
the suspect bathed and prayed for Amarachi. She also gave Amarachi the
love potion and instructed her to use it regularly to attract a man that
would propose to her.
 
The plaintiff alleged that the
prophetess assured her that her ‘husband’ would approach her at a fixed
date after using the love potion.
Amarachi said she
realised that her prophecy was a scam when the love potion did not work.
Rather, the only man she had hoped to marry her also left her instead
of proposing to her.
 
P.M.NEWS learnt that in
annoyance, Amarachi challenged the prophetess and asked her to refund
her money. But the suspect refused to do so.
 
She alleged that the suspect threatened to place a curse on her if she demanded for the money again.
Amarachi reported the case to the police who arrested the suspect.
 
When
questioned, the prophetess said the woman asked her to pray for her to
get a husband which she did and the rest was for God to fulfill.
 
Nwachukwu was charged to court for the alleged fraud.
 
When she was arraigned, she pleaded not guilty.
 
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs M.B. Folami granted her bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety in like sum. However, the court remanded her in prison custody pending when she would  perfect her bail conditions. The matter was adjourned till 4 June 2014.

Comedian Alibaba mocks Patience Jonathan in new interview

comedian alibaba

While emphasizing the need for education, Comedian Alibaba made reference to the First
Lady who has been a victim of consistent public jest owing to her
alleged grammatical mis-constructions and errors.

He said "the education of the girl child is very important because if
Patience Jonathan were educated, we will not have the problem that
people think we have with her not being able to speak English. Having a
primary and secondary education helps a child to develop (into) whatever
the child wants to become later. It is obvious that Patience (Jonathan)
did not get any of the above, or did not get it properly."
....I bet he doesn't know that Patience actually went to school and that's where she met Goodluck Jonathan....he was her lecturer! #okbye!
