Prophet Jilts Policewoman


A prophet at the Celestial Church of Christ, Idimu division, Lagos State, Nigeria, Patrick Babatunde, is now in trouble for allegedly jilting a policewoman, Emily Ojomolade.

The 31-year old prophet, P.M.NEWS gathered, was engaged to Ojomolade, who is a member of his church, for more than four years and were to get married when the relationship turned sour.

The prophet reportedly told the policewoman that he doesn’t love her again and that they should go their separate ways.

This angered the woman who demanded for the N150,000 she gave him to rent a bigger apartment where they will live together.

Failing to pay the money, the jilted woman reported the matter to the police at Ikotun Station and the prophet was arrested and charged before the Ikotun Magistrate’s Court for obtaining money under false pretence, an offence contrary to Section 419 of the Criminal Code.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge and was granted bail in the sum of N150,000 with two sureties.

When the matter came up for hearing, the defendant promised to pay back the money, saying that he borrowed the money from her when they were still in love.

The court ordered that his properties impounded at the station be brought to the court by the IPO at the next adjourned date, 8 September, 2010.
