After a futile attempt to get the slot to the House of Representatives, an aspirant in Ekiti State has taken his case to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission after losing huge sum of money to some set of self-acclaimed spiritualists.
They were alleged to have defrauded the aspirant of the sun of N24 million but failed to deliver on the mandate.
Operatives of the Lagos Command of the EFCC arrested the two self-acclaimed spiritualists Alfa Abiodun Ibrahim and Wale Adifala while the third accomplice, Ifawole Ajibola, aka Baba Khalifa is on the run.
Report from the Commission disclosed that they were arrested on July 7, 2022 in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, following a petition against them, alleging that after collecting the said sum, the whole efforts came to a dead end.
Adifala, admitted to collecting the sums of money from their victim, including N2.9 million, which he claimed was used to buy black, brown and white cows, rams, lavender perfume, rings among other items, to carry out sacrifices at different times.
He confessed that he linked up on the matter with Ifawole Ajibola, and we continued with the sacrifices together, until we were arrested by EFCC,” he said.
Ibrahim, who was the one who had prior contact with the victim, admitted collecting money at different times.
He told interrogators that their assignment was just to pray and do the necessary sacrifices, which they did, and left the rest to God, he said along the line, the zoning for the Reps seat was taken away from Oye-Ekiti to Ikole-Ekiti,” he said.
