EFCC Arrests Alfa, Herbalist for duping aspiring reps Member in Ekiti

Operatives of the Lagos Command of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested two self-acclaimed spiritualists, one Alfa Abiodun Ibrahim and Wale Adifala, along with one Ifawole Ajibola (aka Baba Kalifa currently on the run), allegedly conspired to defraud an aspiring House of Representatives member in Ekiti State, of the total sum of N24,071,000 which they claimed were to be used to secure spiritual help for the political ambition.

They were arrested on July 7, 2022, in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, following a petition against them, alleging that after collecting the said sum, the whole efforts came to a dead end.

Under interrogation by operatives, Adifala, admitted to collecting the sums of money from their victim, including N2.9 million, which he claimed was used to buy black, brown, and white cows, rams, lavender perfume, and rings among other items, to carry out sacrifices at different times.

“Our own is just to pray and do the necessary sacrifices, which we did, and to leave the rest to God, however, along the line, the zoning for the Reps seat was taken away from Oye-Ekiti to Ikole-Ekiti,” he said.
