Ritualist arrested in Lagos for sleeping with girlfriend’s corpse for 6 days
Nemesis has finally caught up with a young man who planned to use his girlfriend’s corpse for ritual in Lagos.
The Lagos State police command has apprehended a young ritualist identified as Ifeanyi Njoku on Monday, April 11, for allegedly killing his 24-year-old girlfriend, Precious Okeke, in an estate at Badore, in the Ajah area of Lagos State.
According to an eyewitness report, the man was instructed by the Herbalist to kill his girlfriend who he brought from the village, and sleep with her corpse for 7 days to unlock enormous wealth.
Having a day more to complete the 7 days countdown, the young ritualist ran out of luck when the neighbours began to notice the foul smell from the house.
The neighbours alerted the Police who ransacked the apartment and found the six days old corpse of his girlfriend.
Speaking to Punch, the Eyewitness said:
“The boy killed his girlfriend about six days ago, and he confessed that he wanted to use the girl for money rituals. He said he was told that he should have sex with his girlfriend’s corpse for seven days, but he was caught on the sixth day. Today (Monday) is supposed to make it the seventh day.
The smell of the corpse had been disturbing neighbours in the compound and other residents. So, they called the estate chairman to help in confirming what was going on in the apartment and while searching the apartment, they found the girl’s body.
“The boy was arrested and taken to the Lamgbasa Police Station and during interrogation, he confessed that he killed his girlfriend six days ago.
“We learned that the boy offered N6m to kill the case; we also learned that he brought the girlfriend from the village and they just moved into the estate.”
The state police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed the murde4, adding that the deceased and the suspect were lovers.
“Two suspects, Ifeanyi Njoku and Mbam Atunmufor, 36, have been arrested. They have been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for further investigation. Njoku was the one that rented the apartment.”
