Shocking! How Herbalist Defrauded Lagos Banker N2.5m Using Ritual Soap Scam

A herbalist has been arrested after he defrauded a Lagos banker identified as Lekan the sum of N2.5 million while promising him ritual soap that would multiply his money. The herbalist identified as Seye Olufokunbi disclose this before newsmen how the whole incident took place.
According to a report by Punch, the 33-year-old said he told Lekan, who worked in one of the banks at Victoria Island, Lagos that the money was for a special soap. He said he lied to the banker that the soap, when kept in a box for two days, would produce a lot of money. The money magic was said to have failed, leading to a petition to the Lagos State Police Command's Rapid Response Squad in February 2016.
Following the petition, operatives were said to have trailed and arrested the suspect at his base in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State. He was later taken to the command headquarters in Ikeja on Tuesday.
He said, "I have known Lekan for a long time and he is my customer. He was initially patronising me for herbs for his ailment. "But he later approached me for money ritual, saying the money he was making as a banker was not enough for him. I said I could do it if he could give me N2.5m.
He brought the money and I gave him a bar of soap. I told him to keep the soap in a box for two days, after which he should check the box and he would see a lot of money. "He did that, but it failed, he then reported me to the police, who arrested me."
Explaining further, he revealed that he has a group and they work as a syndicate. He explained that he got N500,000 from the money the victim paid, while the rest of the money was shared among the group members.
"I was initiated into this job by my brother. My ex-wife, whom I divorced after a disagreement, is not aware I am doing this. I was doing this because after I finished studying Business Administration in 2002 in a polytechnic in Oyo State, I couldn't get any good job," he added.
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos confirmed the story and warned members of the public to be careful of those they transacted business. She added that the suspect would be arraigned in court at the end of investigation

On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…
