An Imam was arrested on charges of rape after allegedly raping a young woman, and cutting her hair and nails, police in Nigeria said.

The Ogun State Police Department said that they arrested Rabiu Abdulquadri, after being accused of raping and abusing the 22-year-old woman.

According to the police investigation, Abdulquadri lured the victim to his house, saying that he will give her a special charm that will bring her good luck.

When the woman arrived at his home, he cut her hair and nails, saying that it is part of making the charm. The Imam first met the woman on the street.

Abdulquadri approached her and said that he had a vision about her, but can only reveal it if she came to pray at his mosque.

The woman complied and followed the Imam. Later that night, the Imam instructed the woman to strip naked and shaved her head.

He then raped her. During police questioning, Abdulquadri admitted to taking the woman’s hair and nails, but denied having sex with her.
