Pastor jailed for defrauding lady N270,000

By Felix Kuyinu



A self-acclaimed Pastor, Emmanuel Jonah, has been given a six-year jail term for engaging a lady in a deceitful rounds of sex as well as dwindling her N270,000 in the guise of deliverance.

The self-acclaimed pastor was also said to have siphoned an Android phone from the victim.

Reports disclosed that the victim fell into the trap of the accused at Jakande Estate, Oke Afa where she was told to have some spiritual problems, which she was persuaded to believe.

Part of such problems includes the impending death of her parents and lots of some snares prepared for her by her enemies to render her unsuccessful.


Jonah disclosed that for all that to be allayed, the victim who preferred anonymity must provide the sum of N270,000, her Android phone and some rounds of sex and more.

The prophecy caught her frightened and she obliged to Jonah’s requests and was taken to a church where she was told more dreaded prophecies by other accomplices of Jonah.

Narrating her ordeals, the victim said, “They claimed that strange spirit was following me which had made it impossible for me to progress in life. I was then asked to remove my clothes and remain naked for spiritual bath. In the process, they had another vision that I should allow Pastor Jonah to engage me in serious deliverance by sleeping with me and I complied.

“However, after they were done, I was told to go and wait for more directives from them. I was also asked to look for more money so as to fully complete the deliverance.


“I went home, expecting to see results but didn’t. I initially borrowed the money I gave him and later on, I told my relations about it.

“Their utterances made me regain senses. I went back to the church to seek for them but their unrepentant and negative utterances about the refund of the money I gave them made me inform the Police who arrested them and charged them to court.”

The Presiding Magistrate, Kayode Layeni, found Jonah guilty as charged and sentenced him accordingly for deceit and stealing from the victim who was devastated over the act.

The magistrate said the prosecutor had proven the allegation beyond any reasonable doubt and found the defendant guilty as charged.
