An herbalist, Jamiu Isiaka has claimed he bought skull of lion, the skin of an Elephant and a vulture to perform sacrifice for a Korean national, Keun Sig Kim to enable him secure an NNPC licence certificate for crude oil marketing in Nigeria.

31-year-old Isiaka is standing trial for defrauding Kim over N30 million and impersonating top government officials.

While under interrogation at the Kwara State High Court where he was arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for charges bordering on impersonation, forgery and obtaining money under false pretence,

Isiaka told the court that he travelled to Ijebu-Igbo in Ogun State to buy the ingredients for the sacrifice.

According to him, he bought the skull of a lion for N400,000, the skin of elephant for N500,000 and vulture for N330,000 among other items to conduct sacrifice for Kim for the realisation of his crude oil deal.

EFCC prosecution witness, Dare Folarin told the presiding Judge, M. Abdulgafar how Jamiu scammed Kim.

He narrated that Isiaka impersonated Maikanti Baru, the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, and Femi Adesina, who is Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, to defraud Kim.

Folarin, testifying as the first prosecution witness, narrated how Isiaka used these names to deceive and defraud Kim in the guise of helping him secure licence from the NNPC.

He said a petition was written to the Executive Chairman of the EFCC by the complainant, in which he alleged that some fraudsters collected over N30 million from him all in the name of helping him secure licence from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

“The herbalist sent several documents, which he claimed emanated from the NNPC. The documents had the names of some top government functionaries like, the GMD of NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina.

Others include, National Commissioner with the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mrs. Amina Zakari, among others.

Several foreign currencies were paid into Isiaka’s domiciliary account in UBA by the petitioner.

He further told the court that in the course of investigating the petition, the EFCC wrote to the NNPC to confirm the genuineness or otherwise of the documents Isiaka sent to Kim.

“They replied us that all the documents were fake,” he said, adding that they never emanated from the NNPC.

Justice Abdulgafar, while adjourning to June 25, 2019 for further hearing, admitted as exhibits, all the items recovered from Isiaka’s house including, a Toyota Corolla car, a Plasma Television, Home Theater, Refrigerator, Air Conditioner, and a Generator.
