38-year old Mrs Patience Adams has been nabbed and charged to face the law for allegedly defrauding a woman to the tune of N600,000 using prophecy of a better husband and huge sum of money.
The swindling incident happened at Arida area, Idimu when the victim identified as a 28-year old Cynthia Frank was defrauded after Adams reportedly met her and gave her some revelations about her life that seemed to be real in the form of prophecy.
Adams had promised Frank that she would get two major blessings after she must have delivered her from demonic influence that was obstructing her progress. One of such promises was to make her rich by ensuring she multiplied all her money and the second was to get her a good husband that will take care of her.
She reportedly asked the victim to bring all her money and after the deliverance and blessing, she will multiply the money and she will take it home. However, the music changed after the victim went to to borrow some amount of money which she planned to join with the one she had and having done that, she handed it over to Adams and was told when she will come for the prayer and blessing.
On the day they agreed to meet, the Frank went there but couldn’t fetch the disappeared Adams as she was told by the latter’s neighbours that she never lived in the area. It was then it became clear to her she had been duped. She reported the incident at Idimu Police Division as the security agencies trailed Adams and eventually arrested her.
Adams was charged before the Ejigbo Magistrates court for obtaining under false pretence and stealing under the Criminal Code. She pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs J.O.E. Adeyemi granted her bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum. She was remanded in prison custody pending when she will perfect her bail while the matter was adjourned till 21st of August 2017.
