Kwara Unsettles As Woman Dies Hours After Drinking Concoction


Kwara state police command has arrested herbalist Femi Emmanuel, for allegedly causing the death of a 45-year-old woman and a mother of two, Mrs Tawakalitu Mukaila.

It was gathered that the deceased died in the house of Emmanuel in Ila-Odo-owa, located at Oke-Ero Local Government Area of Kwara state after she was accosted by the herbalist while hawking rice and beans inside Omu-Aran market a few months ago.

This situation has thrown her family into mourning.

According to family source, Emmanuel had, during the encounter, told Tawakalitu that she and her family were under spiritual spell and attack which needed urgent deliverance.

Emmanuel was said to have corroborated his claim by narrating with exact precise some past negative incident in the family of late Tawakalitu.

The anonymous source disclosed that Tawakalitu’s husband, Mukaila, use to be a driver from Oke-ode, a Kwara Suburb, before he was involved in a ghastly motor accident about four years ago, and ever since, it became impossible for him to work with his legs.

It was gathered that with the aid of charms, Emmanuel went to the market and order the deceased into his house in Ila-Odo-owa.

Trouble however, started when Tawakalitu left her wares and headed to Emmanuel’s place along with her 17-year-old niece, identified as Azeezat, an SS1 student.

Narrating the circumstances that led to Tawakalitu’s death, her husband said she was an honest, trustworthy and caring woman who had never involved herself in any indecency act.

“She was the breadwinner of the family, trustworthy and very caring even after my accident left me incapacitated. Her sudden death this way remained a mystery to me.

“On that fateful day, a few months ago Tawa told me about what one Emmanuel, a spiritual told him while hawking inside Omu-Aran market and I told her to ignore such fake antics from the said spiritualist.

“But after then my wife will always complain about the pressure from the same Emmanuel and I cannot stop her from doing her legitimate business which she has been using to feed us, more so I’m not that fit.

“Not until Thursday, March 21, that she disappeared with her nice, Azeezat and we became worried and all efforts to locate her by a search party proved abortive.

Mukaila added that it was on Sunday morning that Azeezat suddenly appeared looking pale and exhausted and narrated to them what transpired between the deceased and the spiritualist at Ila-Odo-owa.

“Azeezat told us that she and Tawakalitu slept in the house of the spiritualist on Thursday and Friday nights and that on Saturday morning he gave Tawakalitu a concoction to drink with pap.

“She said after drinking the concoction Emmanuel gave her (Tawakalitu) a bowl where she vomited some liquid portions which the spiritualist took away.

“Azeezat said it was after vomiting that Tawakalitu became very weak, exhausted and unconscious and died a few minutes later.

Mukaila continued: “Azeezat said that after she died Emmanuel bundled her body inside a room, locked them together with a warning that she too would die in the same manner if she dared narrate what happened to anybody.

“Azeezat escaped from the house of the spiritualist leaving behind Tawakalitu’s dead body.

Mukaila noted that Emmanuel sensed danger after Azeezat had escaped and reported the death of Tawakalitu to the palace of the Olota of Odo-Owa, Oba Josuha Adimula, who in turn briefed the Olomu of Omu-Aran, Oba Abduraheem Adeoti.

He said it was after due consultation between the two monarchs and judging from the enormity of the case at hand that the case was reported to Iloffa police command in Oke-Ero Local Government Area and Emmanuel was promptly arrested.
