A 35-year old fake spiritualist, Lukman Olanrewaju has been arrested and charged before a Lagos court after he lured and engaged a woman, Adeniran Mutiat Jumoke on a three-day marathon sex deliverance under false pretense of curing her from abject poverty.
The incident happened at 14, Akinlegan Street, off Dele Ara Bus stop, Abaranje, Ikotun, outskirts of Lagos where the victim was taken and duped. Apart from engaging her in a marathon sex, the fake spiritualist also forcefully obtained the sum of N208, 000 from her before she was finally let go.
Oyo State-born Olanrewaju was charged with conspiracy, sexual assault and stealing before Magistrate’s court sitting in Ejigbo where he was asked to be remanded in prison. P.M. EXPRESS gathered that Olanrenwaju met Jumoke who complained she was not doing well and needed spiritual assistance to uplift her to success. Olanrewaju then promised to assist her but asked her to pay N208,000 that would be used to buy some materials for prayer.
