“I met the suspect in New York, U.S, in November, 2016 while both of us were on vacation and began a relationship.
When I came back to Nigeria, I noticed that I was pregnant and I told him about the development and he was very happy on the phone. And he begged me to keep the pregnancy till he comes back to Nigeria for us to wed.
He requested for a return ticket to come back to Nigeria and I spent N400k to purchase a return ticket for him. When he came back to Nigeria, he also collected the sum of N2.5m from me to prepare for our wedding.
But instead, he went to Abeokuta, Ogun State, to meet a native doctor who prepared a herbal liquid for him which he claimed was for treatment of diabetics. He convinced me to drink it and because I did not suspect anything, I drank from it.
Unknown to me, it was to abort my pregnancy or to kill me. After drinking it, I began stooling blood and ended up in the hospital. Doctors later performed surgery on me and discovered that the herbal liquid had affected my unborn baby and damaged my Fallopian tube.”
Akorede was arraigned before an Igbosere Magistrate Court on a four count charge which includes procuring unknown herbal mixture to terminate pregnancy, administering poison which killed the unborn baby and obtaining N2.5m under false pretense. Although he denied almost all the assertions, he confessed to giving her some herbal mixture as a cure for diabetics.
