An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday remanded five herbalists for allegedly fleecing a man of N4.7 million under the pretext of solving his spiritual problems.
The accused are : Idowu Olofin,32; Korede Akomolafe,30; Temitope Oluyemi,43; Wale Onifade,36 and Seun Fabusola,28, who were residents of Ado-Ekiti in Ekiti. They are facing a three-count charge of stealing, fraud and obtaining under false pretences. The chief magistrate, Mr A.A. Fashola, granted the accused N500, 000 bail each with two sureties each in like sum. Fashola said the sureties should be gainfully employed and must produce evidence of three years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government (LASG). He also ordered the prosecutor to verify the residential addresses of the sureties. The magistrate added that the accused persons should remain in Kirikiri Prisons pending when their bail conditions would be perfected. The magistrate adjourned the case until June 6 for further hearing. Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Micheal Unah, had told the court that the accused allegedly collected N4. 7 million from the complainant (name withheld). Unah said that the accused had promised to solve the complainant’s spiritual problems and revive his dwindling business. “The accused fraudulently collected the sum of N4.7million from the complainant by reciting some incantations to help him solve his spiritual problems. “The defendants took the complainant to the beach where they wilfully collected the money from him. “The complainant who later regained his senses after the accused persons had left, reported the matter to the police’’ the prosecutor said. He told the court that the accused committed the offences on May 3 at 9.30 a.m. at Alpha Beach, Ajah in Lagos State. The prosecutor said that the accused bought a Toyota Camry and Lexus 330 salon cars from the money they fraudulently obtained from the complainant. The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 287 and 314 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised). The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 287 stipulates seven years’ imprisonment for offender, while Section 314 prescribes a 15-year jail term for false pretences.

Pope Francis has urged Chinese Catholics on Wednesday to show they are in full communion with the Holy See. Pope Pope Francis The appeal is coming amid what appears to be another stall in the Vatican’s longstanding attempts to reach a deal with Beijing over bishop nominations. Francis made the comments during his general audience, noting that many Chinese Catholics will be marking a feast day dedicated to the Virgin Mary this week in Sheshan, near Shanghai. Francis prayed that all Chinese faithful “can live their faith with generosity and serenity, and can make gestures of fraternity, harmony and reconciliation in full communion” with the pope. China’s estimated 12 million Catholics are split between those belonging to the government-backed Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association and an underground church loyal to the pope. These underground priests and parishioners are frequently detained and harassed. Francis, and before him, Pope Benedict XVI, have tried to unite the two communities, and in recent months, Vatican officials had expressed hope that a deal to resolve the key stumbling block to reconciliation was nearing completion. Under the deal, the Vatican would recognize seven bishops not chosen by the pope who have been appointed over the years by Beijing, and two underground bishops named by the pope would step aside. Going forward, the pope would have effective veto power over Beijing-nominated bishops, according to a Vatican official familiar with the talks. But since the beginning of the year when word first emerged that an agreement was near, China appears to have hardened its position. In February, the government introduced new regulations on religious affairs and has hardened attitudes toward any organization outside the direct control of the Communist Party. Recent propaganda posters have been popping up around China, saying God can’t solve problems, only the party can. “Go to church each day to study God, no way the spirit can relieve your hardship,” reads one in Henan province south of Beijing. “Go with the party, don’t believe in God, the party will bring us so much happiness.” Supporters say the Vatican-pushed deal would help the Holy See achieve its years-long goal of bringing all of China’s Catholics ostensibly under the pope’s wing. Critics say the deal is selling out China’s long-suffering underground Catholics to an authoritarian regime.
