A self-professed spiritualist, Lukman Olanrewaju, has been dragged before an Ejogbo Magistrate Court in Lagos state, for allegedly luring
and engaging a woman, Adeniran Mutiat Jumoke, on a three-day marathon
sex ”deliverance service.”
The accused pretended to be delivering his victim from abject poverty
and apart from engaging her in a marathon sex, Olanrewaju also
forcefully obtained the sum of N208, 000 from her before letting her go.
It all started when Olanrenwaju met Jumoke who complained she was not
doing well and needed spiritual assistance to uplift her to success.
The 35-year old fake spiritualist then promised to assist her but asked her to pay the said amount.
According to him, the money would be used to buy some materials for special prayers.
The Oyo State-born also told her that she will subsequently embark on
spiritual deliverance which involves doing ‘things extraordinarily.’
The accused informed her that he will engage her sexually for three
days and thereafter, perform other rituals after which she will become
rich at a certain period.
The incident happened at 14, Akinlegan Street, off Dele Ara Bus stop, Abaranje, Ikotun, outskirts of the state.
Things went out of hand after she gave him the money and did other
things he requested including sleeping with her for three days but there
was no improvement.
Her condition reportedly became worse.
It dawned on her it was all a scam after she decided to to return to the ‘spiritualist’ but met the house evacuated.
Jumoke, however, reported the matter at Idimu Police Division, which led to Olanrewaju’s arrest.
He confessed to have defrauded her as he had no such power to cure poverty.
Olanrewaju was subsequently charged with conspiracy, sexual assault
and stealing before the presiding Magistrate, Mr. A.A. Fashola on
In his ruling, Fashola granted Olanrewaju bail in the sum of N50, 000
with two sureties in like sum, ordering that he be remanded in prison
custody pending when he will perfect his bail conditions.
The Magistrate adjourned the matter till December 5 for mention.
