LAGOS—A 26-year-old prophet with Immaculate Ministry in Satellite Town, Lagos, who allegedly
abducted a teenager, has revealed that he did it to
liberate the victim’s family from a spell
Parading the suspect yesterday at the Lagos State
Police Command, Ikeja, the command’s boss, Fatai
Owoseni, said: “The suspect, David Ifunaya,
abducted the victim for three weeks after the victim
told him that her father is a herbalist.
“Throughout her stay in his place, neither did he
nor his victim call her parents, who were searching
everywhere for her.
She was later traced to the suspect’s home in
Satellite area of Lagos, following which her parents
reported the case to police.”
However, the suspect claimed that he did what he
did to cast out a spell from the teenager.
He said: “I met the girl earlier this year and
ministered to her. I told her that her family was
under a spell and later gave her a handbill, which
she rejected saying that her aunt would be angry
with her for collecting a Christian handbill, since
they are Muslims.
“She, however, requested for my number which I
gave to her. Since then, she calls me for prayers and
counselling. I even prayed for her and she passed
her JAMB exams.
“When she called and told me she was coming to
my house without the knowledge of her parents, I
refused but later agreed because she kept pleading
that she needed spiritual help.
“She also lamented that nothing was going on well
for her and her family and attributed it to the spell
in her family. She said she was convinced I am a
man of God because since I prayed for her, things
have been going on well with her.”
However, when the 16-year-old girl was
approached, she stated that she was carried away
by the accurate prophesy the suspect gave
concerning her and her family.
However, she said she was on her way to her
uncle’s place on July 31, only to find herself at the
prophet’s house where she stayed for eight days.
She said: “While in his house, he introduced me to
his pastor as his sister. I slept in his bedroom and
he never made any advances on me.”
