A self-professed Islamic cleric, locally known as Alfa, has been arrested and charged before a magistrate court in Isolo, Lagos state, for engaging a 34-year-old woman in sex deliverance that lasted for three days.
The 42-year-old Oyo state-born cleric, Jamiu Mukaila, reportedly defrauded Bose Alele to the tune of N350,000 after which he engaged her in a three-day marathon sex under the false pretence of casting evil spirit out of her.
PM News reports that the incident happened at Ire-Akari Road in Isolo, a suburb of Lagos, where the victim resides, same place where the prayer took place.
According to Bose, Mukaila approached her and introduced himself as Alfa, telling her that he had a revelation from God concerning making her life better.
She said he told her that she was possessed by an evil spirit called mammy-water (mermaid) and that she needed deliverance to cast out the evil spirit so that favour will come her way.
Bose, who spoke amid shock, said 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 further revealed that she did not know what came over her. Immediately after the encounter she paid the sum of N350,000 and allowed the ‘cleric’ to have sex with her for three days before she came to her senses.
It was immediately after the marathon sex that she realised she had fallen for the cleric’s deception. The lady went to Aswani police division and reported the incident.
Mukaila was arrested and taken to the station where he allegedly confessed to committing the crimes.
The suspect said he was born into an Alfa family in Oyo state and inherited the gift of prophecy and deliverance. He said he was married and had four children.
Meanwhile, when the police prosecutor, Abas Abayomi charged Mukaila to court for stealing and obtaining sex under false pretence under the criminal code, he pleaded not guilty.
However, Joy Ugbomoiko, the presiding magistrate, granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum. Mukaila was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail. The case is adjourned till Wednesday, August 5, for trial.
