A popular prophetess in Akure, the Ondo State capital, Mrs Felicia Olasunkanmi Oyelade has been sentenced to two years imprisonment by an Akure Chief Magistrate Court over allegation of forgery.
Prophetess Oyelade was found guilty and will spend the next two years in prison for forging land documents and selling same to unsuspecting members of the public.
The 59-year-old Oyelade, who is the Prophetess- in-Charge of a church situated on Ori Oke Basiri along Idanre Road, Akure, the Ondo State capital, had been standing trial on a one-count charge of forgery since 2013 following a report that she altered a land sales agreement between her late husband, Olasunkanmi Oyelade and the complainant in the matter, Isaac Babalola.
According to the prosecution counsel, Mr Adewale Bamisile, the convict altered the original sales agreement to read 12 hectares of land purchased at cost of thirty five thousand naira instead of 7.871 hectares purchased for twenty five thousand five hundred naira by her late husband in the year 1977 by her late husband.
According to him, the lid blew off Prophetess Oyelade’s shady deals when she sold a portion of the land located around Priston College, along kilometre 4, Akure/Owo Road, Akure to an unsuspecting buyer with the forged document after the same land had been sold to another person by the rightful owner and complainant in the matter, Mr. Isaac Babalola.
