The Ogun state police command has arrested an Islamic cleric identified as Abdul Salami Yakub for allegedly defrauding some members of the public.

The suspect was arrested following a petition forwarded to the Commissioner of Police by one Rukayat Ibrahim that the suspect defrauded her and her younger sister, Oluwaseun Ibrahim, to the tune of N5.475million. Rukayat said Yakub claimed to have a spiritual solution to her daughter’s problem.

A masquerade head, assorted charms and magic pots were recovered after a search was carried out in his house.

Ogun state police spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi further advised Nigerians to be careful of whom they approach for spiritual solution to their problems.
