On getting to his church at Palace of Mercy, Matthew Street, Odo Ado Area, Ado Ek­iti, the convict hypnotized the victim and lured her into his room. He thereafter spread a white cloth on her and raped her.

The convict was said to have deployed an unsavoury tactic to hypnotise the victim by using white handkerchief to clean the victim’s private part and inserting a sub­stance believed to be potash into her vagina.

The prosecution called six witnesses to prove the case while the defence counsel, Chris Omokhafe, called the convict and one other person as witnesses.
