According to the reports, the herbalist prepared a love portion for Sumaila to charm his boss into loving him more.

Daily Post reports that the employer, one Mrs. Adeyemi, discovered the evil plan and sent him away.

Sunday reportedly collected N45,000 as payment to prepare the charm and gave Sumaila something to use but the charm seems to have failed him.

In anger, Sumaila reported the case to the police who immediately arrested the fake spiritualist.

The court heard that the incident happened at the Ijora area of the state.

The police prosecutor, Sgt. Kokoye Olusegun said the pair were arraigned on a two-count charge bordering on fraud and obtaining under false pretence.

However, Daily Post reports that the culprits pleaded not guilty.
