MURDERERS •They killed 60-year-old man for money ritual


Three alfas, who the police said were among those responsible for the incidences of kidnapping and killings of innocent people in the Lagos metropolis for ritual purposes, are now in the police net.

Three alfas, who the police said were among those responsible for the incidences of kidnapping and killings of innocent people in the Lagos metropolis for ritual purposes, are now in the police net.

They are, Adeniyi Sayau, Saheed Animashaun and Tafsir Raji.
The bubble burst for them when the trio, who said they met at a Quranic school in Epe, Lagos, 10 years ago and later became friends, allegedly murdered a 60-year-old man Lekan Abiodun, in February 10, cut his head, two hands and manhood for ritual and buried the body in shallow grave in Ogombo, between Epe and Owode.

The victim’s journey to the unknown began when he approached one of the alfas, Animashaun, who incidentally, was his brother-in-law and requested for a magical power that would make his creditor’s memory blank. He was said to have borrowed N30,000 from a man who later claimed it was N60,000.
As Animashaun could not prepare the charms that could blur somebody’s memory, he decided to contact Raji and Sayau for assistance.

After discussing on phone, the victim was asked to come to Raji’s house in Epe, where Sayau was also co-opted into the bloody business.
While in Raji’s house, instead of finding solution to his problem, the suspects chose to use him as solution to their own financial predicament, by killing him and using parts of his body to prepare concoction that would make them millionaires.

According to Raji, after drinking the concoction, he was supposed to make love to a woman who would have died 24 hours later, before her spirit could start spinning money.
Though Animashaun admitted inviting his brother-in-law to Raji’s house, he denied any involvement in his death.

He said he was sent away before Abiodun was murdered. After the murder, Animashaun went home, thinking his tracks were covered.
Unknown to him, the victim had told members of his family his whereabouts.
Daily Sun gathered that when the search for the victim started, the first port of call was Animashaun’s house and he quickly denied any knowledge of Abiodun’s whereabouts. It was after severe torture that Animashaun owned up to the crime.

Though Sayau and Raji denied killing Abiodun, they admitted being involved in ritual killings.
When the police stormed their houses, human skull, pubic hair of female victims and other human parts, wrapped alongside aligator pepper and Indian hemp, small coffins, among others, were recovered.
Sayau told Daily Sun that the public region was used to prepare love charms. He said he was among those who go to cemeteries to exhume dead bodies and remove human parts, adding that he was not involved in killing human beings.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, said a team of pathologists from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), including police medical team, exhumed the body of Abiodun, where it was buried in a shallow grave. He explained that investigation was still going on to recover the severed parts.
