What could be the special connection between villages and crimes? What could be the connection between self-acclaimed herbalists and fake currency production factories? What happens to a man who finds himself under siege from the men of the Nigeria Police having been found to be in company of notorious crime gangs?
#Ismail Adesina, 43, may have been swindling people of their hard-earned cash under the pretext of helping them to cure ailments and barrenness, but what could possibly have made him to be in a compound where fake currencies were been produced?
The #Oyo State Police Command, who discovered a village called Ojoku in Badeku, #Ona-Ara Local Government Area of of Ibadan, where thousands of fake pounds, euros, dollars and other foreign currencies were being produced, arrested Adesina after finding him there.
Adesina confessed to being a #herbalist and that he had been involved in several financial crimes, but denied being part of the gang who produced fake currencies.
He said, “I am a herbalist and I inherited the skill from my father. I am also a conman. I cured diabetes, barrenness, blindness and other ailments. I have cured many people. My partner, who escaped yesterday, knows how the currencies were produced. Taju and Wasiu are my other partners. We have been here for about four years. We collected varying sums of money from our victims but we do not kidnap people. We bought the land in the bush and built the houses. I am a native of Beyerunka in Ibadan. The names of our victims are with my partners.”
Apart from arresting Adesina, the men of the #Oyo State Police Command also acknowledged that two Toyota Camry cars with number plate AA 125 DK and AA 207 DH and a Nissan Almera lift back model with number plate AGL 882 DF were found in the compound, which was fenced with corrugated iron sheets.
There are two houses in the compound with at least six rooms adorned with various statues to give the impression that the place is being used as a shrine. The walls were decorated with the group’s description of gods to scare victims. Several notes of fake foreign currencies littered the ground.
