Imam caught slitting girls throat in Oyo.

37-year-old muslim cleric, Isah Salaudeen was caught on
Thursday night trying to slaughter a young girl, Chiwendu
Nkwocha who had gone to him for spiritual help in Ibadan.
According to report, the victim, Nkwocha was brought to Salaudeen
by her boyfriend, Bola, in January this year so that he would help in
using prayers and other means to exorcise some spirits troubling her
and she had been undergoing this ‘spiritual cleansing’ by being given
herbs, concoctions and ‘holy water’ to cure her.
On that fateful day, Salaudeen had asked the victim to lie down while
he covered her face with a cloth. She suddenly felt a sharp pain on her
throat and before she knew what was happening, the cleric reportedly
attempted to hack her with a cutlass to make his work faster when it
seemed the knife was not achieving the aim intended. She then
screamed, jumped up from where she was lying and ran out for help.
The incident was said to have been reported by one Aafa Taiye
Agulofi and Ademola Agoro who resides in the same area with the
suspect.
Salaudeen when apprehended, denied trying to deliberately kill the
lady, saying he did not know what came over him. He said he believed
he was manipulated by the spirits troubling Nkwocha to commit the
criminal act and that he came to his senses later on.
” I am a Muslim cleric and will never do rituals. Even I have self-
discipline so much that I don’t have girlfriend or go to prostitutes
since my wife and I divorced. If I feel like having sex, I just
masturbate until I (ejaculate). Divine (Nkwocha) used to play
hard and was also staying with me; that was why I had sex with
her ,” Salaudeen said.
Salaudeen, is currently being held at the Iyaganku Division of Oyo
State Police Command while Nkwocha is said to be receiving
treatment at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
The spokesperson for the Oyo State police command, Olabisi
Okuwobi-Ilobanafor, a Superintendent of Police, confirmed the
incident, saying that the suspect would be transferred to the State
Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, Ibadan, for further
investigations.
