A prophet identified as David Daniel has been arrested in Lagos for allegedly assaulting a trader after claiming God sent him to her.

The alleged victim, Joy Muriyaro, reported the matter at the Ejigbo Police Station on Tuesday, September 17.


A statement made available to by Lagos police spokesman, Bala Elkana, on Sunday said the said prophet claimed that he saw in a vision that the woman was having a spiritual problem and would have fibroid growth in her womb in the future.

He subsequently collected N3,500 cash and a bottle of perfume worth N1000 from her for spiritual cleansing, Mr Elkana said.


The woman stated further that the suspect followed her to her house and ordered her to remove her clothes for him to rub anointing oil on her buttocks.

“She became apprehensive when she noticed that the suspect was masturbating when rubbing the anointing oil on her buttocks.

“The suspect was arrested and charged to court for indecent assault and remanded in Kirikiri Prison,” the police statement concluded.
