Atlanta Based Nigerian Man Rescued From Ritualists Den In Ekiti, Suspects Arrested

Okechukwu Omeniho, a US-based Owerri-born business man lured to Nigeria from his base in Atlanta has been rescued from the den of ritualists, gang members in Ekiti state.

The victim who resides in Atlanta was charmed and lured to Nigeria from the US under the pretext of appeasing gods of fortunes and prosperity for him.

The 49-year-old father of 3 fell for the scam and came directly to Ekiti state where he was lured into the den of the fraudsters.

The suspects took N300,000 from their victim. They were performing ritual on the suspect around 9am yesterday when officers of NSCDC rescued him.

Omeniho wept bitterly shortly after police nabbed the fraudsters identified as 44-year-old Fashola Tunde, 25-year-old Ono Akin, 30-year-old Shola Adetifa and 78-year-old Lawrence Ayeni inside the bush in Ekiti State yesterday.

    Pls if u want 2 enter a Keke Napep or a Taxi and the rider or driver uses a piece of cloth or a handkerchief to clean the back of the seat for you, pls dont sit on it.

    Reason: they are now using people for rituals through that medium or they just want your voice to cease.

    Pls send this message to people you care about. Pls do it. Save lives. It is serious.

    If anyone stops you and ask you if you are interested in some Perfume and give you a papper to smell as sample, pls dont accept it.

    Its a new scam. The papper has been laced with some powerful drugs so that when you inhale it, you will pass out so they can rob you or do worse things to you.

    This alart was recieved from a senior police officer this morning.
    Pls take note and alart everyone you want to protect. This is not a joke. Be good always.

    We just have to be extremely causious, careful and vigilant cos these days are evil.

    I take a stroll…

    WHEN A man hopes to God alone for all the fortunes he will ever get, he does not fall into this kind of trap.

    @Noname,we never can tell,that man maybe under spell because it was stated that he was “charmed and lured to nigeria“. Sometimes we shouldn’t underrate the power of this evil men and their charms. Formally am someone who doesn’t believe in charm and magic. But it caught my breath when I witnessed this charms in actions on two occasions between our border and benin republic. Am a strong believer in God, but those things exist too even the bible didn’t deny that and its even exposed it origin.
    but what I do know is that, those things can only work on someone who doesn’t believe in God. The question is,is this man not already a prosperous someone considering the country he came from? Then why did he now suddenly agreed and come to nigeria to perform a spiritistic act by “appeasing a god of fortune and prosperity” if he is not charmed or under spell? so the charm worked on him perhaps because he respects those practices related to ritual and spirit mediums. He should thank God he was rescued and go back his atlanta georgia,become a full servant of God and stop being slave to spiritism.

    I want to believe it is an inside job, someone he knows and trust is involved, but why should he fall for such scam, the only answer will be desperation.
    Only God knows what he is going thru for him to be told that by appeasing some gods is his solution to whatever problem.
    I am sure he has learnt his lessons, he should look unto God the author and finisher of our faith.
