Ogun youth confesses to removing father’s private part for money ritual

In a shocking confession, a 20-year-old boy named Ridwan has admitted to killing his own father for the purpose of a money ritual in Ogun State.

Ridwan was apprehended by the Ogun State So-Safe Corps on Thursday at Oshoku village, Ijebu North Local Government Area.

According to the So-Safe Corps Commander, Soji Ganzallo, officers on patrol heard a strange noise in a building at Oshoku around midnight on August 31. Upon investigating, they discovered the lifeless body of a man lying in a pool of blood. The alleged killer had fled the scene.

The officers were said to have made their way into the building to confirm what was happening, “but to the officers’ dismay, they found a man’s body lying lifeless in a pool of his own blood and the alleged killer fled the scene,” Ganzallo said.

The statement quoted Ganzallo as having instructed the Zonal Commander, Ijebu Zonal Command, Marcus Ayankoya, to get the suspected killer arrested within 24 hours.

“The suspected killer was nabbed where he was hiding in a bush.

“He confessed to have killed his father, Ishau with a rope tied to his neck and a knife used to remove the needed parts of his body for ritual purpose,” he said.

The corps commander noted that the alleged killer told the officers of the corps during interrogation that “he only removed the private part, larynx, and just four teeth of his father as requested by a ritualist he identified as Baba Kekere.”

When questioned about the whereabouts of the ritualist, Ridwan refused to provide any details. He has since been transferred to the Nigeria Police Force, Ogbere Divisional Headquarters, for further investigation and possible prosecution.
