The Osun State Police Command has apprehended some suspects in connection to the killing of a victim identified as Ayoade Fasesan Moses in the state. The suspects are reportedly being interrogated by the police Command over their involvement in ritual killing.
A herbalist has narrated how he killed an alleged customer for rituals and sold parts of his body in Osun state. The suspects, Faseun Afolabi, Fadare Afolabi and Taiwo who were paraded by the state police commissioner, CP Woke Olokode at the police headquarters in Osogbo, admitted the guilt of the offence.
Confessing the role he played, Faseun Afolabi said, ‚Äúone 35-year-old, Ayo came to my place for a money ritual and I told him it‚Äôs hard but he insisted on it and as a result of this, I approached another herbalist friend, Fadare Afolabi, who told me that we can use the boy for our own money ritual.‚Äú
It was gathered from the suspect‚Äôs confession that the victim was given ‚Äėmedicine‚Äô and thereafter strangled to death while one of the suspects held his legs. One of the suspects confessed that he was given the victim‚Äôs hands and his heart while adding that he sold one of the victim‚Äôs hands for N20,000 and gave out the other hand and the heart for free.
The Osun State Police Chief revealed that the principal suspect (Faseun Afolabi) had initially denied knowing the whereabouts of the ritual victim but confirmed that he knew the victim. However, the suspect eventually confessed to have conspired with two of his cohorts and led detectives to the Fidibomi Area of Ikirun where the victim was killed, butchered and his remains were buried.
Following this development, the remains of the deceased were exhumed and taken to the UNIOSUN morgue for autopsy where the mother of the victim identified the last cloth worn by her son (victim).
\Olokode assured that the arrested suspects will be charged to court after the conclusion of investigations, while efforts are ongoing to apprehend one of the suspects still at large.
