A man is now in police net in Ogun State for allegedly killing a 16 year old step daughter for ritual purpose.
The suspect, Korede Odubela, was arrested along with an accomplice, Lekan Lawal, for killing the girl at Imosan area of Ijebu Ode.
The State Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, parading the suspects at the command headquarters in Abeokuta, said they both strangled the girl to death, and sold her hand and head to a Ritualist.
One of the suspects, Odubela speaking to newsmen, confessed to strangling the girl around 12 midnight while she was asleep, and later sold her head to his herbalist son, who paid N3,000 as part payment.
Odubela, however, alleged that he killed the girl on the instruction of her mother, who accused the girl of stealing her money, and that she should be used as a sacrifice, a claim denied by the woman.
The police commissioner said the body of the girl had been deposited at the morgue of the Ijebu Ode General hospital
