A self-styled prophet, Dennis Mmadu, 35, is now cooling his heels at Kirikiri Prison, Apapa, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, on the order of an Ejigbo Magistrateís Court where he is facing a four-count charge of obtaining money under false pretence, stealing and threat to life.
Mmadu had allegedly engaged Cynthia Nwanguma, a 24-year old student nurse in a marathon sex for seven days in order to deliver her from barrenness. The nurse also lost N21,800 to the con prophet.
Mmadu from Imo State, southeast Nigeria, met Cynthia at Igando, off LASU-Isheri road, Lagos and he took her in his car marked TU 806 AAA to his house at 26, Oseni Street, New Oko-Oba, near Agege.
The victim told P.M.NEWS that she was placed on an oath not to disclose her ordeal to anyone or else she would die.
Thereafter, Mmadu had sex with her for seven days; pretending to be anointing her breasts and private part with oil. She added that the fake prophet also claimed he was having holy sex with her while he engaged in unprotected sex with her throughout the period.
She said it was there he prophesied to her that she had a strange illness in her stomach that would make her barren throughout her life time.
She said Mmadu told her that she was lucky to have met him and promised to offer her spiritual healing so that she will not have problem looking for the fruit of the womb when she got married.
She said he showed her some women and men as those who have benefited from his spiritual powers. But she later discovered they were his accomplices. She said she was still in shock over what happened because she did not know what came over her.
She later discovered that she has been duped. After her ordeal, she demanded her money from Mmadu. She went to Igando police division and reported what happened when Mmadu ignored her.
Mmadu was later arrested and interrogated. He was charged to court for fraud, stealing and assault.
The offence, the police said is contrary to Sections 36, 44, 312 and 409 of the Criminal code Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011. He pleaded not guilty. The presiding Magistrate, Mrs. M. B. Folami granted him bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety in like sum. The matter was adjourned till 16 September, 2012 for mention. He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will meet the bail conditions.

Good lesson for the lady. People refused to be wise about fake pastors who proclaim to be 'God sent'. They go running to them for miracles which they cannot give. There are many others like him; especially in Nigeria. They need to be exposed and punished for deceiving the people and falsely acquiring their livelihood in the name of God. We know them. The great diabolical miracle workers. Their day of judgement is near. God is watching!
