Two suspected ritualists have confessed how they roasted the head of their victim, a businessman, after being contracted for the job by another businessman.
Amusat Dauda and Kabiru Dudupariola said they received N200,000 from Yekini Ayinde aka Abija, to kill the victim, a 42-year-old rice seller identified as Sanusi Isiaka.
Isiaka was slaughtered by the gang on May 14, 2017, near Slava Construction Company along Iwo Road, Osogbo.
The deceased was said to have supplied bags of rice to Abija, who didn’t want to pay for the goods after selling them, hence his contract to the suspects to kill him.
Dauda and Kabiru were arrested on December 28, 2018, in Ifon. Their contractor, Abija, is still on the run.
“When we got to the bush, Abija told the driver to stop and he gave us a sign. We quickly overpowered Isiaka and tied him with a rope,” Dauda said in his confession.
“Kabiru wanted to kill him with his gun but we later decided to use a knife to cut his throat. After killing him, I remembered that I needed a human head for money ritual and I quickly removed his head.
“I was roasting the head and preparing other items needed for the ritual when some policemen came. I managed to escape that day. I ran away from Ifon but they eventually apprehended me on December 28, 2018.”
