The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibadan Zonal Office, on Tuesday, arrested a suspected fake native doctor, Fatai Aliu, for duping people on the pretext of possessing spiritual powers to solve their problems.
It’s no more strange in our society how fraudsters are thriving especially the Southern part of Nigeria. Greedy people are mostly the victim of this predators. This case of fake spiritualist is no exceptional amongst numerous of its like within Ibadan in Oyo state and major parts of Ogun state.
Kudos to our gallant officers of EFFC for bursting this Aliu who goes around on daily basis to defraud people of their hard earn money.
Aliu was arrested by the operatives of the commission during a raid on his residence on Kisumu Estate, Odo-Ona Elewe, Ibadan.
Before his eventual arrest, the commission said it had worked on several intelligence reports linking the suspect to a series of fraud allegations involving large sums of money.
He was also accused of engaging in money doubling through which he allegedly collects money from his victims with the promise of using his spiritual powers to multiply the sums, but instead diverts the funds to his personal use.
The raid led the EFCC operatives to Aliu’s shrines located in a thick forest around the Ibadan-Ijebu-Ode Road and Kobomoje area of the town, where many voodoo items were discovered.
Items recovered from the suspect included two Toyota Corolla cars and a Honda Pilot SUV.
Aliu was also said to own three luxury buildings within Ibadan, while land documents were also recovered from him.
The suspect is currently undergoing interrogation.
