A 24-year old lady, Cynthia Nwanguma who was placed on a secrecy oath by a Lagos based self-styled prophet, Dennis Mmadu, not to disclose her ordeal to anyone or else she would die, has damned the consequences and recounted her ordeal in the hands of the fake prophet; because that’s what he is.
Cynthia alleged that Mmadu had unihibited sexual intercourse with her for seven days; pretending to be anointing her breasts and private part with oil. She added that the prophet also claimed they were having ‘holy’ sex while he engaged in unprotected sex with her whenever he felt like throughout the period. The sex was allegedly to ‘deliver’ Cynthia Nwanguma, a student nurse from barreness. She also claimed to have been defrauded by the prophet to the tune of N21,800.
35-year-old Prophet Mmadu, is now cooling his heels at Kirikiri Prison on the order of an Ejigbo Magistrateís Court where he is facing a four-count charge of obtaining money under false pretence, stealing and threat to life.
Mmadu from Imo State, met Cynthia at Igando, off LASU-Isheri road, Lagos, and he took her in his car marked TU 806 AAA to his house at 26, Oseni Street, New Oko-Oba, near Agege.
She said during one of their sex session Prophet Mmadu prophesied told her that she had a strange illness in her stomach that would make her barren throughout her life time.
She said he told her that she was lucky to have met him and promised to offer her spiritual healing so that she will not have problem looking for the fruit of the womb when she got married.
She said he showed her some women and men as those who have benefited from his spiritual powers. But she later discovered they were his accomplices. She said she was still in shock over what happened because she did not know what came over her.
She later discovered that she has been duped. After regaining herself, Cynthia demanded her money from Prophet Mmadu but he ignored her. She thus reported the incident to Igando police division.
Prophet Mmadu was subsequently arrested and interrogated. He was charged to court for fraud, stealing and assault.
The offence, the police said is contrary to Sections 36, 44, 312 and 409 of the Criminal code Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011. He pleaded not guilty. The presiding Magistrate, Mrs. M. B. Folami granted him bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety in like sum.
The matter has been adjourned to 16 September, 2012 for further hearing. The prophet was however remanded in prison custody pending when he will meet the bail conditions.
