A self-acclaimed prophet in Lagos State left lips wide agape following his abduction of a 16-year-old girl in the state.
The 26-year-old prophet,David Ifunaya, of Immaculate Ministry in Satellite Town, was arrested and paraded by the police at the State Police Command, Ikeja, on Wednesday, August 10, 2016.
He got people even more shocked when he confessed that the reason for the abduction of the victim was to liberate her family from a spell.
The command’s boss, Fatai Owoseni, said: “The suspect, David Ifunaya, abducted the victim for three weeks after the victim told him that her father is a herbalist.
“Throughout her stay in his place, neither did he nor his victim call her parents, who were searching everywhere for her.
“She was later traced to the suspect’s home in Satellite area of Lagos, following which her parents reported the case to police.”
While defending himself, the suspect said: “I met the girl earlier this year and ministered to her. I told her that her family was under a spell and later gave her a handbill, which she rejected saying that her aunt would be angry with her for collecting a Christian handbill, since they are Muslims.
“She, however, requested for my number which I gave to her. Since then, she calls me for prayers and counselling. I even prayed for her and she passed her JAMB exams.
“When she called and told me she was coming to my house without the knowledge of her parents, I refused but later agreed because she kept pleading that she needed spiritual help.
“She also lamented that nothing was going on well for her and her family and attributed it to the spell in her family. She said she was convinced I am a man of God because since I prayed for her, things have been going on well with her.”
The 16-year-old victim revealed that she was carried away by the accurate prophesy the suspect gave concerning her and her family but was confused to find herself at the prophets house on July 31, 2016 where she spent eight days
She said: “While in his house, he introduced me to his pastor as his sister. I slept in his bedroom and he never made any advances on me.”
