A suspected ritualist, Yewunu Tanlaju, is now in the net of Ogun State Police Command for allegedly killing a 14-year-old girl.
The state police commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, paraded the suspect was arrested in Arigo Ijofin near Ipokia at a news conference held at the command headquarters in Abeokuta.
The police commissioner said the suspect was arrested along with a herbalist, Olusoji Asano, and another suspect, Joye Suru.
The suspect at the news briefing admitted luring the girl by buying N40 worth of puff puff from her, and then tied her hands and slaughter her for ritual purpose.
Later, the suspect said the vital organs were removed from the body of the slaughtered girl and dumped the remaining part of the body inside a well.
Tanlaju said, “It was this man (pointing to another suspect, Olusoji Asamo) who told me to bring human parts.
“It was at that time I saw the girl selling puff-puff in one school. I called her, bought puff-puff from her.
“This is the second person I have killed. It was in the same area, but I was not caught then. It was the same Soji that requested for human parts then, although I didn’t know what he wanted to use them for.
“When I delivered the parts, he gave me N8,500 because we have not agreed on any amount. But it was N10,000 he gave me when I delivered the first parts.”Please subscribe to our newsletter
