A visually impaired herbalist, identified as Owolabi Adefemi a.k.a. Ojunu, has been accused of defrauding an 86-year-old woman of N19 million under the pretext of healing her child and making money rituals for her.
The herbalist, who’s based in Ogijo, Ogun State was also accused of sleeping with the woman’s daughter and granddaughter.
TheNation reports that the victim, identified simply as Madam Alimot had 15 children, but they were snatched by death one after the other until she was left with only three.
When one of the remaining children was also h+t by a strange illness last year, the octogenarian woman contacted the suspect for a solution to the sickness that had seized her daughter.
Adefemi was said to have told the woman that d£ath was hovering around her household and could only be averted through an atonement requiring a sacr+fice with a cow.
The desperate woman promptly provided the amount requested for the sacrifice, setting off a chain of subsequent requests for additional money for unexpected sacrifices that gulped a princely N19 million.
By the time the scales fell off from the eyes of the woman and her children, she had sold her two buildings while her daughter and granddaughter had warmed the herbalist’s bed several times.
