Teacher Loses N1.6m To Fake Spiritualist

A 37-year old fake spiritualist, Udochi Obimba has been arrested and charged before Ejigbo Magistrates’ court for allegedly defrauding a teacher, Peace Igboanusi, to the tune of N1.6m under false pretence of offering her spiritual deliverance in Lagos State, western Nigeria.




The incident happened at Ikotun, a suburb of Lagos where Obimba met Igboanusi on her way to work.
Abia State-born Obimba allegedly approached Igboanusi and offered to assist her spiritually to overcome her financial predicament.

Reports gathered that before the victim fell for the antics of Obimba, the self-styled spiritualist first made revelation concerning her life and members of her family.
He reportedly took her to an undisclosed place in Ikotun where other members of his gang, who are now at large, told her that she needed prayers which entailed that she would pay certain amount of money to be free from spiritual bondage.

Thereafter, they subjected her to taking an oath and undergoing other rituals and after which she was ordered to go and get the money needed for her deliverance.She was also assured that after the prayers, she would become rich and successful.

The victim said she did not know what came over her when she believed them and went and started borrowing money.
The more Igboanusi brought money, the more she was asked to bring and was under instruction not to tell anyone, not even her husband, until after the prayers and she becomes a successful woman.


While all this was going on, Igboanusi did not tell her husband.
She went to her relatives to borrow money for the gang and promised to pay back soon.She had hoped that after the prayers she would have enough money and would refund all the money she borrowed.

When she could not get money any longer to give to the gang after she had lost N1.6 million, she became restless. Those she borrowed money from started disturbing her. They visited her home and demanded for a refund.

It was then her husband suspected her behaviour and forced her to open up. She eventually opend up and said Obimba and his gang collected all the money from her through various bank accounts for prayers and deliverance.
The matter was reported to the police at Area ‘M’ Command, Idimu, and the police started trailing Obimba.

Obimba was arrested in a bank where he had gone to withdraw the money Igboanusi paid into his bank account.
He was taken to the Command where he allegedly confessed to the police that he is a fraudster who specializes in duping gullible people in Lagos.
He also confessed that he has other accomplices and the money they collected from Igboanusi was shared among them.

Obimba was charged to court with obtaining under false pretence, stealing and impersonation under the Criminal Code.
He pleaded not guilty.

The presiding Magistrate, Mrs. J. O. E. Adeyemi granted Obimba bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum who must show evidence of tax payment for three years.
Obimba was remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri pending when he will perfect his bail condition.The matter was adjourned till 14 March, 2016.

She brought this upon herself. That amount of money is enough to start a small business. More so ,why would she hide such from her husband? She was been asked to take an oath and she couldnt sense something wrong from that?

francesca said...

Some people just have a problem with their reasoning. How can someone be asking you to bring money to solve your financial issues up until it got to 1.6million? Why not start up a business or sumtin??? Humans, slaves to religion since 1759

That's how a woman I met @ the salon today was scammed of all she had .She got into a taxi from ugbor road but the moment she entered she said one of them touched her that was all till they dropped her, they took her wedding ring, jewelries atm n she told them her pin. when she regained herself she ran to the bank but she was told she had nothing left in her account, we should all be careful wen boarding expecially taxis.

I had similar experience but God fought for me! Boarded a golf taxi at Randle avenue when waiting for a bus and no bus, was scared of going late to work. A woman in front, one at the back, myself and a man. The driver stopped in front of the clinic, started asking the womsn in front seat, what placed in his car boot! He went to boot, came back and started talking. Oh! Madam, you have all this dollars. What do you do for a living, bla bla.He started asking others like myself in the taxi, what we should do with the money and the woman. Meanwhile I was busy thinking of not getting to work late, I snapped! Opened my eyes at the other passengers, saying I don't want to be late for work and I need to get down. The driver said no, that we all are in this together , that's. When I lost my cool and started cursing them! I asked for my fare back since I had already paid for the trip. I noticed that they all became afraid, gave me back my money, dropped me off at the nearest bus stop which was at a gas station, close to first bank and they zoomed off! The way they drove, made other passersby to come and ask me what was going on. I had a hazel contacts on at that time, got it from a wedding which I was one of the bridal train ladies. Some passersby that stood to hear my story told me that, those people were fraudsters and they got scared because I challenged them and with my contacts which scared them more! I forgot about getting to work early. Some area boys told me that the reason the fraudsters sped was because word got to them that opc members were on the look out for them. Sorry for the long tale,just wanted to share. It takes the grace of God to escape these jazz up thieves!
