20-year-old confesses to using Father’s private part for rituals



20-year-old uses Father's private part for money ritual

A 20-year-old boy identified as Ridwan has confessed to the gruesome murder of his biological father, allegedly in pursuit of money ritual.

The harrowing incident occurred in Oshoku village, situated within the confines of Ijebu North Local Government Area of Ogun State.

Authorities apprehended the suspect on Thursday, August 31, following a swift response by the Ogun State So-Safe Corps.

The corps, known for its vigilant patrolling efforts, acted promptly upon hearing unusual sounds emanating from a particular building in Oshoku at around midnight.

According to a statement released by the spokesperson for the So-Safe Corps, Moruf Yusuf, the officers immediately launched an investigation upon discovering a lifeless body, drenched in blood, inside the building.

The alleged perpetrator had fled the scene, leaving behind a gruesome scene of violence.

So-Safe Corps Commander, Soji Ganzallo, took decisive action, instructing the Zonal Commander for the Ijebu Zonal Command, Marcus Ayankoya, to capture the suspected killer within a 24-hour timeframe.

Remarkably, the apprehension of the suspected murderer took place in a hidden location within a nearby bush.

Upon interrogation by the corps officers, Ridwan shockingly admitted to killing his father, Ishau, using a rope to strangle him and a knife to extract specific body parts for ritual purposes.

It was revealed that the suspect, in his confession, disclosed that he had removed his father’s private parts, larynx, and four teeth, as per the demands of a ritualist known to him as Baba Kekere.

However, when pressed about the whereabouts of this alleged ritualist, Ridwan remained tight-lipped, declining to divulge further information.

Following his arrest and confession, the alleged killer was promptly handed over to the Nigeria Police Force, specifically the Ogbere Divisional Headquarters, for further investigation and potential prosecution.
