Twenty-year-old Arrested For Stealing Money To Do Ritual



A 20-year-old apprentice, Olisa Ezuokafor, has been arrested and arraigned before the Isolo Magistrate’s court for allegedly stealing his master’s N1.3m in Lagos, to seek spiritual power in order to become rich.

LEADERSHIP Weekend reports that Olisa Ezuokafor was arrested after he stole cables worth the said amount and gave the money to suspected spiritualists to prepare charms that would enable him to become rich. The cables were stolen from the office branch located at Qundus Folawiyo Street in Isolo, Lagos.

According to Olisa, he met some people who scammed him by asking him to sell the cables and bring the money for them to empower him with spiritual powers. He reportedly sold the items, gave the money to them and they took him to Ogun State where they promised him that his master would not know he stole the items.

However, the concoctions they prepared for him failed as his master discovered that those items were missing and handed him over to the police at Aswani Division.

However,  when the matter was called on Tuesday, he was charged to court for stealing and he immediately pleaded guilty. He was granted bail and remanded in prison custody pending when he would perfect the bail condition.

The prosecutor, Mrs Rita Momah, did not oppose his bail but asked the court to give another date for trial.

The magistrate, Mrs OA Adegbite, granted him bail and ordered him to be remanded in prison custody pending when they would perfect his bail condition.

The matter was adjourned till 17th September, 2018.

When our correspondent contacted the apprentice, Olisa, he said that he was tempted to become rich after he was contacted by one of the gang members who misled him and duped him. He regretted that the concoctions they prepared for him did not work including the assurance that his master would not know that he stole the items for the purpose.
