The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a native doctor,
Ifatade Elegbeleye, for allegedly duping and impregnating a female client,
Cecilia (pseudonym), in the Ipaja area of the state.
Punch Metro learnt that 42-year-old Elegbeleye, who hails
from Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, was arrested by the X-Squad section of the command
after the victim complained to the police. The suspect was said to have been
arrested on December 21, 2015.
Elegbeleye, who told Punch Metro that he had s3x with the
lady, added that he and the woman fell in love with each other, while the s3x
was by mutual consent. Elegbeleye added that the victim had given birth to a
baby girl for him.

According to the police, the native doctor allegedly had a
culture of turning his female clients into house maids after having s3x with
some of them.
The police added that Cecilia’s mother, who is a trader in
Abesan Estate, Ipaja, had also been allegedly defrauded by the native doctor to
the tune of N7.9m in 2015.
Our correspondent gathered that Cecilia was taken to
Elegbeleye in November 2014, to seek spiritual help on issues bordering on late
marriage and spiritual husband.
It was learnt that Elegbeleye, who had his centre at Olude
bus stop in the Ipaja area, however, allegedly took advantage of the situation
to impregnate Cecilia, as well as dupe the family.
The police alleged that the native doctor had built two
houses ─ one in Lagos and the other in Ekiti State ─ from the proceeds of the
Speaking with Punch Metro, Cecilia, said she met the native
doctor at a bus stop on an evening in November 2014, adding that he allegedly
hypnotised her into having an affair with him.
She said, “I met him as a cab driver at the Iyana Ipaja
Roundabout. We never knew that the man was a fraudster and was into occultism.
He first became friendly with my mother. After that, one thing led to another
until he s3xually assaulted me and defrauded my mother.”
However, Elegbeleye told our correspondent that there was no
truth in Cecilia’s claims, adding that after she gave birth to a child for him,
he rented a two-bedroomed apartment for her.
He said, “It is true that I am a native doctor and I treated
her for ulcer and spiritual problems. She had a spiritual husband. She was
having ‘promise and fail offer’ from men. So, we started befriending each other
and in the process, she got pregnant for me.
“The woman now brought policemen to my house to arrest me.
She has a girl for me. I did not use force to sleep with her. Can you hypnotise
a woman who does not love you? It is not possible. She loved me. Her family
wants to take all my property. That is why they are lying against me. Where did
they get the N7m they are claiming? Are they rich?”
A police source told our correspondent that Cecelia’s child
was living with the victim’s parents in Abesan Estate.
He said, “The suspect had been in the Kirikiri Prison on
remand bordering on a similar offence. It was when he came out that we arrested
him for this case. He took advantage of the lady’s problems to have sex with
her and she became pregnant and had a girl for him. The girl is with the
victim’s family. We are investigating the native doctor for a case of
conspiracy, stealing and sexual harassment.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmus,
confirmed the arrest.
She added that Elegbeleye would be charged to court as soon
as investigations were concluded on the matter.
She said, “The matter is being investigated by operatives of
the X-Squad after a petition was received by the Commissioner of Police.
Investigation is still ongoing on the matter, and the suspect will be charged
to court once investigation is concluded.”
