One Emeka Chukwuemeka who operates a laundry shop at oregun, Lagos state, has revealed that a pastor gave him blood to drink to become a millionaire.
Chukwuemeka disclosed this when operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Lagos State, arrested him.
It was gathered that neighbours alerted the Police after a stench of blood from his shop enveloped the community.
The suspect said: “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.”
Speaking on the incident, the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, said the suspect would be charged to court, while the fleeing pastor would be trailed and arrested.
