An aspirant for the House of Representatives in Ekiti State has lost N24 million to alfas who promised him victory in the election primary following their acclaimed spiritual potency.
The aspirant was said to have taken his matte to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, after losing the money to the so-called spirituallists.
The operatives of the Lagos State Command of the EFCC apprehended the two self-acclaimed spiritualists, Alfa Abiodun Ibrahim, and Wale Adifala while the third accomplice, Ifawole Ajibola, aka Baba Khalifa, is at large.
A report from the EFCC noted that they were arrested on July 7, 2022, in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, following a petition against them, alleging that after collecting the said sum, the whole efforts came to a dead end.
Adifala admitted to collecting the sums of money from their victim, including N2.9 million, which he claimed was used to buy black, brown and white cows, rams, lavender perfume, and rings among other items, to carry out sacrifices at different times.
He confessed to linking up the matter with Ifawole Ajibola, who worked with him in preparing the sacrifices until they were arrested by the EFCC.
Ibrahim, who had contact with the victim, admitted collecting money at different times from the aspirant.
He told interrogators that their assignment was just to pray and do the necessary sacrifices, which they did, and left the rest to God.
He added that along the line, the zoning for the Reps seat favoured Ikole-Ekiti and not Oye-Ekiti.
