A 36-year-old single mother, Mrs. Susan Parma, has confessed that she acted as a woman native doctor and always changed patterns depending on the belief pattern of their victims to deceive.
LEADERSHIP Weekend reports that Parma was arrested by the operatives of the Lagos State Police Command with two of her accomplices, Chukwuma Okoye and John Oloye.
Parma revealed that she was trapped and initiated into the group after one of them now at large, engaged her in a day break sex romp and talked her into joining the gang.
As she joined the gang, she said she was specifically given two roles to play; one was to act as a prophetess that gave out fake prophecies to victims in order to make them to part with their money, gold and any other valuables.
She disclosed further that her second role was to act as woman native doctor and that she changed patterns depending on the belief pattern of the victims.
Parma added that their office served both as a shrine and chapel and could be converted after a victim was trapped and they could identify his/her belief.
Parma explained that most fraudsters thought faster and far ahead of their victims in order to meet the demands and expectations of the victims who most likely were greedy and gullible persons that would want to reap too much with little.
She further revealed that most times it was not really charms that worked on the victims but the greed and quest of the persons to get rich that landed them in trouble.
She, however, said she was tired of doing those things because she knew that she had caused pains to many victims and broken many homes.
LEADERSHIP Weekend gathered that the suspects were arrested at Aguda area of Surulere, Lagos after the police obtained credible information about their activities.
The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Edgal, said he deployed a team of officers to trail them to their chamber or office. The team arrested three suspects and others escaped.
Edgal said the police recovered fake money in different denominations, fetish charms, and other items they used for the purposes of defrauding people.
The CP, however, said the suspects would be charged to court after the conclusion of investigations, while the police would continue to trail the other suspects still at large.
