The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Lagos State has arrested one Emeka Chukwuemeka after neighbours around his shop complained to Policemen of blood stench oozing from his shop.
Chukwuemeka, who owns a laundry shop at Oregun, Lagos state while being paraded revealed that a pastor gave him blood to drink so as to become a millionaire.
While speaking to newsmen the suspect narrated how he was cajoled by a supposed pastor to go into rituals to help him boost his stagnant business.
“I was in my shop, working one fateful day when my friend, Pastor Johnson, came to me. He said that he noticed I had been working as a dry cleaner for long, but had made little or no money.
“That was how the conversation started. The pastor told me that there were young boys, not up to my age, who made it through the work they did, but also with the support of rituals. He said that I should face reality.
“The pastor promised to assist me to overcome all my challenges.
“He asked me to get N5,000 ready. I rallied round and got the money for him.
“I didn’t know that what he was going to give me was human blood. He instructed me to drink the blood for three days, after which I would stop, and then wait for the result. I took it twice, I couldn’t continue.
“I couldn’t bear the stench of the blood. But nothing changed in my business after I drank the blood twice. I was planning to dispose the blood when some neighbours started complaining of the stench.
“This led to my arrest. Immediately I was arrested, the pastor’s phone line stopped going through,” the suspect narrated.
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, said the police are trailing the pastor while the suspect will be charged to court.
