The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission announced on Tuesday that two self-proclaimed spiritualists, Alfa Abiodun Ibrahim and Wale Adifala, were arrested in connection with a N24m fraud.

The suspects are accused of conspiring to swindle a candidate for the House of Representatives in the state of Ekiti of the money, which they claimed would be used to gain spiritual assistance for his political ambitions.

According to a statement on the EFCC’s website, the guys were arrested on July 7, 2022 in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, following a petition alleging that the victim lost his political bid after receiving the aforementioned cash.

During interrogation by the agency’s agents, Adifala reportedly admitted to stealing money from the victim, including N2.9 million, which he claimed was used to purchase black, brown, and white cows, rams, lavender perfume, and rings, among other items, for sacrifices at various periods.

He was cited as stating, “I also collaborated with Ifawole Ajibola (at large) on this affair, and we continued making sacrifices together till we were arrested by the EFCC.”

Ibrahim was also recorded as saying, “Our duty was only to pray and offer the required offerings, which we did, and to leave the rest to God. However, along the road, the representative seat’s zoning was changed from Oye-Ekiti to Ikole-Ekiti.”

In a related event, 34 alleged Internet fraudsters have been apprehended by the Ibadan Zone Command of the EFCC.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the anti-corruption agency said that 21 people were detained on Monday, July 25, 2022, in the Apete and Ijokodo neighborhoods of Ibadan, Oyo State.

Among the items recovered from the accused were exotic automobiles, laptops, mobile phones of various brands, and forged documents.
