Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital has sentenced a prophet, Olakanye Oni, to life imprisonment for manslaughter.
In his judgment Thursday, Justice A. A. Adesodun held that the prosecution had proved the case beyond reasonable doubt.
Justice Adesodun noted that “The defendant is guilty of the offence of manslaughter and sentenced him to life imprisonment”.
The prosecution, led by the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, Ekiti State, Mr. Julius Ajibare, said in “March 2017, he invited Gbadamosi Omowale, from Lagos to Ado-Ekiti, on the pretence that he has a solution to her barrenness.
“At his church at Palace of Mercy, in Matthew Street, Odo Ado area, Ado-Ekiti, the convict hypnotised the victim and lured her into his room.
“He later spread a white cloth on her and raped her. The convict used a white handkerchief to clean the victim’s private part and inserted a substance believed to be potash into her vagina.
“The victim’s vagina got decayed as a result of the substance inserted and this led to the victim’s eventual death.”
The prosecution called six witnesses to prove the case, while the defence, Barrister Chris Omokhafe, called the convict and one other person as witness.
