A 42-year-old self-professed Islamic cleric, Jamiu Mukaila, has been arrested and charged before Isolo Magistrates’ court for engaging a 34-year-old Bose Alele in sex deliverance session that lasted three days.
Mukaila, popularly known as ‘Alfa’ reportedly defrauded the lady to the tune of N350, 000 before engaging her in a three-day marathon sex in her house at Ire-Akari Road in Isolo, a suburb of Lagos, under the false pretence of casting evil spirit out of her.
According to Bose, who is still in shock, Mukaila approached her and introduced himself as Alfa and told her that he had a revelation from God concerning making her life better. The fake cleric reportedly claimed that she was possessed by evil spirit and that she needed deliverance to cast out the evil spirit so that favour will come her way.
Part of the condition he gave her was that she would pay N350, 000 which would be used to buy spiritual materials and that she must sleep with him for three days.
According Bosse, Mukaila assured her that she would enjoy favours after he had worked on her and that she would equally get a husband of her choice after the deliverance. And that she did not know what came over her immediately after the encounter as she paid the N350, 000 he requested and allowed him have sex with her for three days before her sanity was restored.
Immediately she realised that she had fallen for the cleric’s deception, she went to Aswani Police Division and reported what happened. Soon after she reported the case to police, Alfa Mukaila was arrested and taken to police custody where he confessed to committing the crimes.
He claimed that he was born into an Alfa family and inherited the gift of prophecy and deliverance. However, when the case was brought up in the court Mukaila was charged for stealing and obtaining sex under false pretence under the Criminal Code, he pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs Joy Ugbomoiko granted him bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two sureties before adjourning the case till 5 August, 2015 for trial.
