A 29-year-old female student of College of Education, Akoka in Lagos state has been barking like a dog ever since she visited an Alfa for spiritual cleansing in Ikorodu. According to reports, the cleric identified as Mustapha Hammed had admitted to putting a live frog in the water he instructed the victim to bathe with. Investigations revealed that the 23-year-old suspect had forcefully had sexual intercourse with the lady after discovering she is a student and allegedly wiped her private part with a white cloth. Parading the suspect at the command headquarters, the Lagos state police commissioner, Imohimi Edgal said:”On July 12, 2018, a case of sexual assault by p*netration was brought from Bariga Police Station to Gender Section for further investigation. The suspect, Mustapha Hammed who claims to be an Alfa was introduced to the survivor through a mutual friend.
The Alfa deceived the victim that he saw in a vision that she was going to die within 24 hours. He took the girl to Ikorodu, Lagos for cleansing so that she would not die. At Ikorodu, he forcefully had carnal knowledge of the girl said to be a v*rgin as at then. He thereafter allegedly wiped off her blood with a white handkerchief and since then, her father alleged that the girl has been behaving abnormally because she was completely devastated and traumatized by the incident”.
The suspect, however, admitted to taking advantage of the victim but denied wiping the blood with a cloth. He said that his girlfriend brought the victim to him for consultation and in the process, concluded to marry her. “ I told her ( victim) that during divination, I saw that she had a spiritual husband. She confirmed it and said that had been the cause of her problem. I told her she would need to undergo spiritual cleansing in my house at Ikorodu. I instructed her to bathe and pray three times. After the first bath, I secretly put a live frog in her water. When she saw it, she ran out to inform me. I told her it was a bad omen and that the only solution was for her to sleep with a man. I told her to call her boyfriend but she said I should sleep with her since he was far away. I did it because I love her and intend to marry her. But because she is my girlfriend’s friend, I couldn’t express my love for her. I did not clean the blood with a cloth”. The suspect, according to the police boss, would be charged to court.
