How native doctor allegedly connived with 12 others to murder ex-lover for rituals

Thirteen suspected ritual killers made up of herbalists, Islamic clerics popularly called alfas and a pastor, have been arrested by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT) in Ogun State for allegedly killing a 30-year-old housewife identified as Mrs. Abosede Adeyemi Iyanda.

The suspects are Segun Olaniyi (42), Ayodimeji Adeleye (25), Babalola Akanbi (48), Adeifa Sogbeyinde (37), Rasaq Rasaq Arabs (27), Sunday Akinyemi (41), Adewole Olwafemi aka Pastor (38), Mustapha Ajibola aka Alfa (31), Mustapha Iliya (30), Shilola Amodu aka Alfa (38), Jamiu Abass (25), Smooth Kazeem aka Alfa (37) and Adesola Oduyemi (56).

Eight other suspects, including those who were said to be trading in human parts, are still at large.

Operatives in the Ogun State annexe of the IGP Intelligence Response Team (IRT) were said to have swooped into action following a petition by one Segun Adeyemi alleging that his daughter, 30-year-old Abosede, suddenly disappeared on her way back from office on November 3, 2019.

The petition was addressed to the Inspector General of Police through the Commander of the IGP Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police.

Explaining how the suspects were arrested, a police source said that on the strength of the data available to the IRT Ogun State team, Segun Olaniyi was tracked and arrested.

His confession led the IRT detectives to Abeokuta and different Ogun villages like Ifo, Itori, Papalanto and Adigbe, where eleven suspects were arrested and eight of them confessed to the kidnapping, killing and selling of the body parts of the victim.

They were also said to have relayed how the victim was slaughtered, saying that Olaniyi called Babalola (Akanbi) and Ayo (Adeleye) on the phone to come and do the slaughtering of the woman who was formerly his girlfriend but now married to another man, when she visited him in his ritual office by the side of a river.

While in his office, Segun (Olaniyi) told Ayo to go and buy food for the woman, who they said felt very tired after walking a long distance to get there. Segun then put in the food a drug that would make her feel weak and sleepy.

Segun later told her to go to the stream beside his office and wash her hair while she was completely naked. He asked Ayo (Adeleye) and (Babalola) Akanbi to lead her there.

While Abosede was washing her hair, Ayo pushed her head into the river, brought out a pocket knife and killed her. Both of them then pulled her body out from the river and dismembered it, separating the flesh from the bones as directed by Segun, assisted by Akanbi.

They later cut the flesh into pieces and sold them to some herbalists, alfas and a pastor who needed them for money rituals. Some of them also allegedly roast the meat and ate it with hot drinks.

Among the items recovered by IRT operatives were decomposed human breasts, burnt human flesh mixed with liquid substance in a bottle and calabash, one complete human foot, pieces of dry human skull, a Laura SUV with registration number KTU801FP, one Bajaj Boxer motorcycle with Registration number JGB019VC, one unregistered Toyota Corolla and one Toyota Matrix with Registration number AKD703FU.

The source further disclosed that the man and the surveyor who sold the land close to the stream to Segun to build his ritual office was being interrogated by the IRT operatives.

In his confession, Segun, a native of Asi village, Odo Otin LGA, Osun State, said he dropped out of school in Primary 5 and was married to two wives with four children.

He said: “I am now a native doctor. I learnt welding before I changed to a native doctor. It was at the back of Oja Oba, Abule Egba, Lagos, in the house of one native doctor named Iyawonu that I learnt how to become a native doctor.

“I talk to the oracle to give me the solutions to my customers’ health challenges. I worship Ifa.
It was during our meeting that I met one native doctor who told me that the fastest way to become rich is to go into rituals.”

On how he planned the killing of her former girlfriend, he said: “She called me on the phone that she was coming to see me. I asked her the reason for her visit and she said she wanted financial assistance to boost her business.

“I called Akanbi who is my helping hand and told him to come around because someone would be visiting us. Already, we had work at hand, so Akanbi suggested that we use her for the work.

“We killed her beside my house. I took the head, two hands and part of the meat. I sold the head to Africa for N40, 000. I sold one of the hands to an orthodox doctor named Murideen for N15,000 and the other hand to Tonight for N15,000. I sold the flesh to one Alfa named Sunday Akinyemi (N10,000), Rasaq (N5,000) and Mustafa (N5,000).

“It was Ajibola that introduced Mustapha Iliya to me.
“I used part of the flesh to do powdered medicine which if taken with a hot drink would draw customers.

“At times, we kill the husbands of some of our customers to turn them into widows so that they would join us in bringing victims to be slaughtered.”

In his own confession, Akanbi said: “I am from Iwugo village in Ogun State. I am married with two kids. I was a welder before I became a babalawo (herbalist). I used to assist Segun. If he wanted to buy kola or kill a goat, I would be the one to do it.

“Segun gave me N200 to buy food for the victim and he put sleeping medicine in the food. Ayo and I killed her in the stream.”

Another of the suspects, Adewole, said: “I am a pastor. I perform a miracle with human flesh. I bought part of the flesh worth of N5,000. We also give it raw to some customers to chew and wash down with a hot drink.”

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …

Mourinho looking to steal Man United transfer with phone call

Jose Mourinho has made some good progress with Tottenham Hotspur. The club was struggling when Mauricio Pochetino left mid-season. Jose has his ways of doing things and many times his way might not be ideal.

But as Jose has always said, the most important thing is to get in the result. And since Mourinho has joined only Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United, have earned more points than Tottenham.

Tottenham was at the 14th spot in the Premier League. Jose took them to sixth place and got them back in Europe. However, the expectations will be even higher for the next season. Spurs will want to push into the top four and compete for a Champions League place.

However to accomplish that goal Jose will need to add some players. Tottenham have already completed 3 signings. The club signed Joe Hart from Burnley on a free transfer.

Matt Doherty came in from Wolverhampton for £15 million and Pierre-Emile Hoijberg came in from Southampton for the same amount. But Jose Mourinho wants mo…
