See how Voodoo fraudsters defraud Nigerians at banks in Lagos

On Saturday, September 3,Mrs. Olajumoke Adewole, a nursing mother, was relaxing with her baby  2016 when her housemaid, Esther headed to the bank to withdraw the sum of N30,000 for her mistress . She headed to a branch of one of the banks around Kollington Bus Stop (bank’s name withheld) in Alagbado area of Lagos State.
Moments later, Mrs. Adewole received two separate debit alerts indicating that Esther had withdrawn the sum of N30,000 from her bank account as she was instructed.
But confusion would later set in for the mother of three. More than an hour after she received the debit alerts, her maid failed to return home.
“My fear was compounded when repeated calls to her mobile line indicated that it had been switched off,” she recalled.
According to her, a few people who heard the news insinuated the young lady might have escaped with the money.

 “But I was convinced that Esther wouldn’t do such a thing. In fact, she was literally in charge of the account: at my instructions she would withdraw money with my ATM card to buy things we needed at home ranging from foodstuffs to paying my children’s school fees. So I didn’t believe Esther would run away because of N30,000,” she said.

Amid her confusion, Mrs. Adewole received a call from a stranger who told her Esther was found around Ifo.
“I couldn’t fathom what she could have gone to do at Ifo after withdrawing the money at Kola. My husband had returned home when the call came so we drove straight to Ilepa, where we eventually found her,” she said.

Esther’s account of how she found herself at Ilepa in Ifo, Ogun State was confounding.

“I remember I met a few people who came to use the ATM on queue and after a few minutes it was my turn to use the machine. I made two withdrawals – the first, a N20,000 withdrawal, and the second, N10,000. That’s everything I can remember except that I later found myself in a strange place without the money and the ATM card as well as my phone,” she recalled.

Esther was just one of the recent victims of voodoo fraudsters who lurk around banks to defraud unsuspecting bank customers without attracting the attention of security personnel. Although their modes of operation differ, findings by Sunday Sun clearly show that the perpetrators of this crime employ juju in their operations.
A drama of similar spectacle played out at Oshodi Bus Stop on Friday, May 6, 2016, when a woman lost the money she was taking to the bank, in a mysterious circumstance.
The woman, who simply identified herself as Comfort, Sunday Sun gathered, was heading to the branch of a new generation bank (name withheld) in the area when a woman curiously touched the paper bag containing the money she was meant to deposit in the bank.
The woman said the money, a sum of N30,000, was given to her by the manager of her company, to deposit in the company’s account.
Sunday Sun’s correspondent, who was at the scene of the incident, saw the lady being chased away by a team of policemen from Akinpelu Police Station when she approached them for help.
Narrating her ordeal to passersby, who gathered round her, the woman said amid tears:

 “The money was given to me by my boss to deposit in a bank. But when I got to that point, one fat woman approached me and touched me. Immediately she did that she went into the bank.
Moments later, I checked the paper bag containing the money only to discover that everything in the bag had turned to pieces of papers.”
But a trader, who claimed to have witnessed the scene when the woman touched the victim, said the woman made a u-turn after she discovered that her victim had gone and then boarded a bus immediately.

Men are not immune from this new trend of crime as a couple of them claimed to have fallen victims in the recent past. One of them is Mr. Adeniyi Aremu, a civil servant who recounted his ordeal in the hand of a fraudster who pretended to be a bank customer in need of N500 notes in exchange for the N1000 notes he had on him.

“I can’t correctly recall the actual date now but I still remember that it was in the build up to last year’s general election,” he began.
“It happened at a branch of (bank name withheld) at Adealu, Iyana-Ipaja. I was at the bank to make a withdrawal of N50, 000 across the counter and I was paid with N500 notes. So I begged the lady who attended to me to change the money to N1000 notes because I felt it would make my pocket to be bulky but she declined on the grounds that she only had N500 notes to pay out to customers.
“As I made to move out of the bank, a middle-aged man who, possibly had overheard my conversation with the lady, approached me and requested me to give him the N500 notes in exchange for N1000, which I gladly obliged.
“He handed the N1000 notes, which he brought from his pocket to me but after counting the money, I discovered it was 46 pieces instead of 50 pieces. I told him the money wasn’t complete but he insisted it was complete. So I had to recount money which was still short of N4000.
“At that point I became angry and handed the money back to him but after recounting he discovered it was short of N4000. He later dipped his hand into his pocket and added the remaining four pieces of N1,000 notes. I felt there was no need recounting the money so I gave him the N500 notes I had.
“Surprisingly, the money was short of N20,000 when I got home and recounted it. I couldn’t really explain how it happened, I still find it difficult to explain,” he said.

“How my husband raped my best friend” – Woman tells shocking story

An angry woman has told the shocking story of how her husband was found out to have r*ped her own best friend in his home.

The woman, identified as Rukayat, told the story in a letter she sent to Vanguard.

Below is how she told the story:

“I was fresh out of the university when I found myself pregnant at age 22. I didn’t want to get married, but my boyfriend then was 30 years old and persuaded me we should get married for the child’s sake.

“The marriage turned out to be a nightmare as he became controlling and violent. I endured his abuse for 15 years and with three children, I finally found the courage to leave him – thanks to my best friend’s encouragement.

“I was to finally go to the house to collect the rest of my things and my friend agreed to go with me for moral support. Unfortunately, she arrived before I got there. My husband was in, in spite of his telling me he wouldn’t be around.

“He invited my friend in to wait for me and attacked her almost immediately, raping her in the process. When I eventually turned up, we both went to the police and got him arrested. Later, relatives and friends convinced us to drop the charges because of the children.

“My friend never spoke to me again and as soon as she could, she got transferred to another state. If I’d left my ex sooner, my friend might never have gone through the nasty experience of being violated. I blame myself for the trauma she went through.”

Rukayat got a reply after her story was read. Below is the reply:

“Dear Rukayat,

“I’m sorry for what happened to your best friend and it is sad you were unable to be reconciled before she relocated.

“Please know that what happened to her was not your doing. You are a victim just as she was and you need support in realising this.

“You did the best you could by reporting the incident. You’ve lost your best friend as well as your marriage.

“You need counselling to get over your losses and make the most of your life as the single parent you now are.”

“I’m having s*x with my mother-in-law and it’s amazing” – Man confesses

I’m having an incredible and explosive s*xual affair with my mum-in-law, and the s*x is so amazing and I can’t stop…man shares the story online.

A young man has written to a popular s*x and relationship therapist, Deidre, who is also a columnist for The Sun UK newspaper about his addiction to s*xual intercourse with his mother-in-law after an explosive bonking one afternoon which got him hooked to her honey pot.

Below is his story;

**************************************************

Dear Deidre,

I’m having a secret affair with my mother-in-law. She is almost twice my age and we have fabulous s*x.

I got married three years ago. I’m 26 and my wife is a gorgeous Italian girl. She’s 25. When I first went to her house I couldn’t believe her mum’s age. She is 44.

My then wife-to-be told me, proudly, that all her boyfriends had fancied her mum. It seemed a strange thing to say.

That’s the odd thing about marrying someone from another culture — there’s so much that’s different and strange that I didn’t know what to believe. Her mum owns a restaurant.

It’s a small, classy place and my mother-in-law took it on when my wife’s dad passed away. She’s a very smart woman who knows how to run a good business and still have time off to have fun.

My wife covers for her in the restaurant alternate weekends and that’s when her mother is free to see me.

The first time it happened she came to our house where I was alone with our two-year-old son. She said she was checking that I was behaving myself while my wife was away.

I poured her a drink and she pulled up her skirt while she sat next to me. I caught sight of stockings, all lacy and black. That’s something my wife knows I just can’t resist.

We had a couple more drinks then I couldn’t hold back anymore. We had s*x on the sofa while my son slept upstairs.

This is now quite a regular thing. We’ve progressed from suspenders and stockings to bondage and real kinky stuff like I’ve only ever dreamed of before.

I’ve never had this kind of s*x with anyone else and I know I won’t get it again. The s*x is up there in a league of its own but then so is the guilt.

I know this must stop but my willpower is weak.

*************************************************************

Below is the reply he got from the relationship expert;

Are you asking for advice or boasting about what you have been up to?

You know what to do.

You must tell your mother-in-law that it’s all been amazing but you must stop now or your son and your wife, the two people you should love the most, will get desperately hurt.

Take control of your life and please don’t let your lust get the better of you.

Maybe you’re fooling yourself that your wife wouldn’t mind.

I bet that she would.

How is your s*x life together?

Show her what you like but also focus on her.

Let go of other distractions and start giving your marriage the attention and love it deserves.

My e-leaflet How To Thrill a Woman in Bed can help.

Above all, think of yor son. Do your utmost to give him the calm loving home he deserves.
