Hoseni Sumaila is reported to have obtained the charm from a fake spiritualist identified as Femi Sunday, Daily Post reports.

According to the reports, the herbalist prepared a love portion for Sumaila to charm his boss into loving him more.


Daily Post reports that the employer, one Mrs. Adeyemi, discovered the evil plan and sent him away.

Sunday reportedly collected N45,000 as payment to prepare the charm and gave Sumaila something to use but the charm seems to have failed him.

In anger, Sumaila reported the case to the police who immediately arrested the fake spiritualist.

The court heard that the incident happened at the Ijora area of the state.

The police prosecutor, Sgt. Kokoye Olusegun said the pair were arraigned on a two-count charge bordering on fraud and obtaining under false pretence.


However, Daily Post reports that the culprits pleaded not guilty.

Presiding Magistrate, Mr M.A. Etti, admitted the accused to bail in the sum of  N50, 000, with one surety in like sum.

Etti ordered the accused to be remanded in prison custody pending the perfection of their bail condition.

The case was adjourned until 29 January for further hearing.
