Seven people, including a self-styled prophet, accused of engaging in money rituals and human part trade have been apprehended by the Ogun Police Command.

Police Commissioner Abiodun Alamutu disclosed this in Abeokuta, the state capital, on Friday while parading the suspects at the command headquarters, Eleweran.

Among the exhibits taken from the accused were two kegs containing human body parts and a human heart.

He gave the identities of the suspects as Moses Abidemi, Oluwo Monday, Prophet Peter Akiwunmi Ifatosin, Jamiu Yusuf, Sheriff Agbai, and Osojieahen Alioneitoura.

Alamutu said on January 9, the Divisional Police Office in Onipanu received a report regarding the disappearance of Ms. Sulaimon Adijat, a woman who had been asked out on a date by a person named Adebayo Azeez.

“Despite frantic efforts to locate her whereabouts, the mobile phone has been switched off since the day she was reported missing.

“Consequently, the anti-kidnapping unit of the command was drafted to unravel the mystery behind her disappearance, and a technical-based investigation was embarked on,” the CP said.

According to him, the investigation revealed that the suspects were involved in a money ritual known as ‘Oshole’ to produce N200 million within seven days.

“Oluwo Monday charged the duo of Agbai and Alioneitouria N800,000 to prepare the materials for the ritual money. Oluwo Monday, in furtherance of his criminal intention, later contacted one Peter, who was not new in the trade of human parts, to source for a lady between the ages of 18 and 20 years.”

The commissioner said Peter was to deliver the lady’s mutilated body parts, specifically the head, two breasts, vagina, and two wrists that would be used for the alleged ritual.

“However, on January 10, Sheriff and Osojieahen collected the ritual money from Oluwo and travelled back to their location in Edo State.

“Trouble started when Osojieahen used the ritual element as directed by Oluwo and complained bitterly that it failed to yield the expected sum of N200m in seven days.

“A search was conducted in the shrine of Moses on February 3 and 10, where female handbags and two cement sacks containing human bones were recovered,” Persecondnews quotes Alamutu as saying.

He said all the suspects had made confessional statements to the police, adding that a police hunt has been launched to apprehend other fleeing suspects.
