But this medium decided that the best way to help a woman who sought his help to get rid of ghosts from her flat was to drug and rape her.
49-year-old Ow Siew Hoe gave his victim a cup of “holy water”, which she drank and became drowsy.
He then proceeded to have sex with the her.
When the victim confronted him about the assault, he said he was forced to use his sperm to save the ghosts he had fought and hurt.
Otherwise, he said, she and her husband would have been killed.
The incident took place in February 2014.
The Malaysian woman observed that her pets were behaving strangely and thought her flat was haunted.
She told her husband, a Singaporean, about this but he thought she was nuts.
The woman then told her mother-in-law, and the old aunty recommended she pay Ow a visit because he was a “powerful master”.
Ow had been jailed for 12 years and given 12 strokes of the cane.
The judge noted that he had abused the woman’s trust and belief that he had spiritual powers and “methodically planned” to lure her to his flat by exploiting her fear of the supernatural, and that he had inflicted a “lasting psychological impact” on his victim.
