1163, money ritual

A banker simply identified as Lekan(full name withheld) has been duped N2.5m in a botched money ritual exercise.

A fraudster parading himself as herbalist, Seyi Ade(pictured), fleeced Lekan out of N2.5m after the latter approached him for ritual sacrifice to become rich overnight.

Ade, who has been arrested and under detention in the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters, Ikeja, on Tuesday while fielding questions from newsmen admitted he defrauded Lekan .


He said, “Lekan has been my client for long. I once helped him to treat piles, and he later approached me for money ritual. He told me he was not making good money in the bank, and i told him to bring N2.5m, which he brought and gave him a box and a soap.

“I told him that after two days, he should check the box and he would see a lot of money.

“He did that, but it failed, he then reported to the police, who then arrested me.”
