A herbalist who defrauded his client of a huge sum of money said she was being greedy and looking for something where she did not keep it.
The Nation reports that the suspect, Usman Mohammed after the victim lodged a complaint with the police that he had defrauded her of the sum after going him to seek spiritual assistance.
However, the Osun State-based Mohammed said contrary to what the victim told the police, she had actually gone to him for money doubling but because she was greedy, he duped her of her money.
Mohammed narrated that the woman had come to him with the sum and asked him to double it to N12 million but since she showed she was greedy, he had to play a fast one on her.
While confessing at the State police command headquarters, Mohammed said the woman was looking for 'what she did not keep.'
“I live in Osun State. I was arrested in Osun State. She is from Benin. She patronized my office because I do medicine for her. Before she requested for money ritual, she said I should do something to make her business to grow.
When she requested for money rituals I said she must bring the money. She said she had N6 million. I told her to bring a big bag and the money.
I told her to keep the bag somewhere and the money will double to N12 million. That was what she requested for.
She kept the bag in her room for three days and the day she opened it, there was no money inside. I told her she was responsible for the inability of the money to increase. I got N3 million. Other people ran away. She is looking for what she did not keep. She is an ole [Thief].”
Confirming the arrest of the suspect, the state police in a statement, said he would soon be charged to a court after investigations, warning members of the public to beware of fake spiritualists who are out to defraud them.
