A 38-year-old self-acclaimed prophetess named Nnenna James is cooling off at Kirikiri after she allegedly defrauded one Theresa Johnson of over half a million naira, under the guise of deliverance in Lagos.
According to PM News report, the prophetess whose church is located along the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Lagos State, made 31-year-old Theresa to pay the sum of about N570,000 for spiritual deliverance.
She was said to have also collected Theresa’s gold necklace worth N50,000 from her.
Prophetess Nnenna had told Theresa that before she could get a husband and bear a child, she will undergo deliverance so that she will be purified. She had told her to pay the money which she will use in buying the spiritual materials for the prayers.
She gave Theresa a time frame for the deliverance to manifest but the time passed and she did not get a husband neither did she get a child as promised by the prophetess and she therefore asked for a refund.
When the prophetess refused to pay back, she went to Idimu Police Division and reported the matter, leading to the subsequent arrest of the Prophetess.
She was later charged to court and arraigned at the Ejigbo Magistrates’ Court for fraud and stealing under the Criminal Code.
She however pleaded not guilty to the charge against her.
Presiding over the matter, the magistrate Mrs. M.B. Folami granted her bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum while also remanding her in prison custody at Kirikiri pending when she will perfect her bail condition.
The matter was adjourned till 16 July 2014.
