A herbalist in Ogun State, Owolabi Mesioye, and his friend, Oloruntoyin, have been exposed as professional ritual killers.
Mesioye, an Ifa worshipper, and Oloruntoyin were caught after they charmed a man, slaughtered him, and removed his heart and other vital organs for human sacrifice!
According to The Nation, the incident happened at about 10 pm on March 28, 2019, at Alaako-Ijeun Egboro area of Abeokuta, the state capital.
That night, Oloruntoyin allegedly lured the unidentified victim to his home near Mesioye’s residence.
He secretly informed the herbalist that he had brought the man for sacrifice.
They deceived the victim to the back of Oloruntoyin’s residence, where they allegedly hit him with a charm that made him unconscious.
They then slaughtered him and began to remove his vital organs.
But Mesioye’s neighbours saw Oloruntoyin when he brought the man home. They became suspicious when they did not see the man again.
They began to search for the missing man. After two days, they found his body floating on a fish pond at the back of Oloruntoyin’s house on Thursday, March 28, 2019.
They quickly reported the case at the Ibara Police Division, but the police did not visit the scene until the following day and Mesioye was arrested.
But he denied any involvement in the killing and accused his neighbours of hating him for no reason. He said they were lying against him for what he knew nothing about.
Residents said they had warned the herbalist several times to desist from placing sacrifices at major junctions in the community to no avail.
‘’The herbalist had been warned several times to desist from placing sacrifices at junctions in the community. He was summoned to a meeting by the community leaders but he did not honour the invitation. Same with Oloruntoyin, who also has not been attending landlords’ meetings,’’ a source told The Nation.
Police spokesman, Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects are being detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Eleweran, Abeokuta.
