Officers caught Oluwole Abiodun on Wednesday at the court building in south-western Ondo state with charms and copies of the Bible and Koran in a black plastic bag.
A pot containing a rabbit, seven eggs, cowrie shells and palm oil was found nearby, the state News Agency of Nigeria said.
My one question: does it work?
