A 49-year-old self-acclaimed man of God, Prophet Moses Okozie, has been remanded in prison custody after he was arraigned at an Ejigbo Magistrates' Court sitting in Lagos State, for allegedly defrauding two women and engaging them in marathon se.x in the name of spiritual deliverance, reports PM News.
The Isiala-Ngwa, Abia State born Okozie who hails from Isiala Ngwa in Abia State and resides at 6 Olowo-Okere Street, Idimu area of Lagos, was charged on two-counts of rape and obtaining money by false pretense.
Okozie, a father of four, who first docked in August, was accused of allegedly defrauding a 27-year-old woman, Philomena Ajil, of the sum of N550,000 and taking her to a hotel in Ikotun and engaged her in se.x deliverance for her to be successful in her business.
After the se.x sessions continued for several days, the woman realised she had been scammed and reported the case to the police.
The prophet was, however, granted bail by the presiding Magistrate, Mrs J.O.E Adeyemi, but he went back to committing the same offence, this time duping one Amarachi Dike of the sum N1 million and also engaging her in marathon se.x under the guise of giving her spiritual empowerment for business success.
Narrating how Okozie defrauded her, 26-year-old Dike told the court presided by A.A. Fashola, that she fell into his trap while she was returning from a church service in Festac to her base in Iyana Iba.
She said she met Okozie and two of his gang members, a female and a male, while pretended to be taxi operators plying from Festac to Apo junction near Mile 2 area.
She said when she entered the vehicle, she lost her consciousness and the gang took her to Ikotun under the false pretence of supplying her goods which later turned out to prayer deliverance.
She narrated that Okozie who acted as a prophet forced her to drink a substance, and after that, she did everything he requested of her, including borrowing money from her relations which she handed over to him.
While all that was going on, he was also having se.x with her regularly, explaining that it was a spiritual deliverance he was conducting for her.
She only came to her senses when her relatives began to put pressure on her to return their money and she opened up that she had been hypnotized and duped. The relations reported the case to the police and Okozie was arrested and charged to court.
When the charges were read to him, the accused pleaded not guilty and Fashola granted him bail in the sum of N500,000, but remanded him in prison custody pending when he would perfect his bail, while adjourning the case till December 2, 2015.
