Three men suspected to be ritualists have been arrested by the operatives of the Oyo State Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps with the remains of a 73 years old man, Samuel Adebisi.

The suspects who were paraded at the Amotekun Command’s headquarters in Ibadan were identified as Muhideen Akande popularly called Ogunpo, Abdulrasheed Olanrewaju and Ismail Muraina.

They were arrested around Boluwaji area of Ibadan after burying the beheaded body of Adebisi which was buried in a shallow grave after being butchered.

One of the suspects, Muhideen, a 27-year old, said his landlady discovered the dead body at one side of her compound after which she raised an alarm.

He said one of the suspects, Abdulrasheed Olanrewaju had paid a sum of N35,000 to Ismail Muraina to help him get a human head for money ritual.

When efforts to get a victim didn’t yield, Muhideen said he had to deploy a diabolic means to capture the victim, claiming that the victim was a mad man who was roaming the streets.

He confessed that it was Alfa Salam Salam that contacted him that one Abdulrasheed Olanrewaju needed a human head for rituals, adding that he had to proceed to one Baba Ibeji at Bode market who also deals in selling human parts, but that they couldn’t seal a deal due to the price.

This, according to him, made him to use charm to kidnap a man he claimed to be mentally deranged along Amuloko – Akanran road who he later took to his house located at Boluwaji along Lagos Ibadan expressway, where he and the other suspects slaughtered the him and behead him.

While explaining how they got apprehended, Muhideen said, after they had slaughtered the man and remove his head, the remains were buried in a shallow grave at the backyard of the house he was living.
But the landlady has raised some suspicion when she observed a part of the compound was sinking and made effort to know what was buried inside.
Muhideen said while he was trying to exhume the body secretly, the landlady unknown to him had contacted other landlords in the neighbourhood, who later reported to the Amotekun Corps.

Abdulrasheed Olanrewaju and Ismail Muraina the other two suspects who also confessed to the crime said they assisted Muhideen in slaughtering their victim.

Meanwhile, daughter of the victim Olufunke Adeosun said, Muhideen is a member of their family who had lured her father to his house with the claim that he wanted to pay him a sum of N150,000 for a land that he (Muhideen) had sold.

She identified her father as Adebisi Samuel and demanded justice from relevant authorities.

The Deputy Commandant of the Oyo State Command of Amotekun, Akinro Kazeem said, the case will be further investigated by relevant security agencies.

He said: “We heard a report about some suspected ritualists yesterday evening. We started the investigation and we arrested the first suspect in his house who later took us to the other suspects.

“The suspects confirmed that they kidnapped a man along Amuloko – Akanran road, slaughtered him and removed his head.

“The head was then given to one Adbulrasheed Olanrewaju who needs it for rituals. We apprehended Abdulrasheed but he had already burnt the head to ashes.”

Kazeem said one of the suspects known as Ogunpo confessed that he used charm to kidnap the victim.

“We are still investigating and once we are done with our own investigation, we shall hand the case over to the police afterward”, he added.
