An Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, on Wednesday sentenced a self acclaimed Muslim cleric, Jamiu Mukaila, to three years imprisonment for fraud, and pretending to cast out evil spirit and indecent assault on his female victim.
The Magistrate, Mrs Joy Ugbomoiko, found Mukaila, who claimed to be a Muslim cleric, guilty on the first count of defrauding the woman.
Ugbomoiko, however, gave the convict an option of refunding the said amount to the victim within the three months of the sentence.
Mukaila, 42, was sentenced after the court had found him guilty of defrauding the woman of N350, 000.
He was first arraigned before the court on July 10, 2015 on a two-count charge of wanting to cast out “water spirit’’ from the woman, whom he later deceived and had unlawful carnal knowledge of her.
