The Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejugbe and his council of chiefs have banished a prophet, Oni Olakanye, from the town over the death of a woman seeking spiritual help in his custody.
Olakanye of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Palace of Mercy, Olokuta, Ado-Ekiti, was said to have carried out a “spiritual cleansing” on Mrs. Olawale.
The woman was said to have come all the way from Lagos to seek Olakanye’s help over her inability to conceive after over seven years of marriage. The woman had revealed that Olakanye ordered her to remove her panties and placed a mirror under her private parts, which she said the prophet described as “spiritual examination.”
Olakanye allegedly asked Mrs. Omowale to take a spiritual bath standing on a mortar taking the bath with a black local soap and local sponge right in the presence of the prophet.
After the bath, the prophet was alleged to have told the deceased to lie down on a bed inside a room where he spread a white cloth over her and pour a liquid substance on her private part.
Olakanye was also alleged to have used his manhood to push the liquid substance into the deceased genital. The prophet allegedly collected the sum of N50,000 from her being payment for the items used for the assignment and later gave her a ball-shaped item to insert inside her genitals when she returned to Lagos.
She was also given a black local soap which she should use to wash her genitals and breasts. After carrying out the Prophet’s order few days later, she discovered her private part began to get rotten and smelling.
She was taken to different hospitals in Lagos for treatment but all to no avail. Olakanye, who admitted knowing the deceased, claimed that she only assisted the woman to tackle her barrenness. He denied allegations levelled against him.
The palace handed over the prophet to the police to take over the matter. Olakanye promised to cure the woman and was later granted bail by the police. But Mrs. Olawale’s died on 13th December.
