    This case should be thrown out of the court. I don’t mean to be harsh on my judgement but that young woman must share the major part of blame. When she realized that the money coming out her exceeding #200,000 naira she should have stopped or seek advise from elderly person.

    Apparently, it doesn’t take millions of naira to heal anybody. Even a Native Doctor who knows how to heal people by combining leaves and herbs will never charge such exorbitant amount of money. Any Pastor who charges more than #20,000 to cure any illness is a fraud. Any native Doctor who charges more than #20,000 naira is a fraud. Any native doctor who knows how to heal will heal first and people go back to give him gift, it may be inform of monetary or item gift. Folks, let us be more smarter nowadays.
