Kwara, ritualist

A yet-to-be-identified man has been arrested by the Kwara State Police Command after he allegedly killed his father, Michael Olagunju and sold his body parts to some ritualists in Kajola, Odo-Owa in the Oke-Ero Local Government Area of the state.

PUNCH reports that Olagunju was allegedly murdered on his farm at Kajola last Thursday by his son who connived with some ritualists to remove Olagunju’s body parts, including his two hands and heart.

A brother of the deceased, who pleaded anonymity, said the family members were convinced that the suspect had a hand in his father’s death.

“That is why we handed him over to the police,” he added.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the incident.

He said, “A farmer was killed on his farm at Kajola in Odo-Owa last week. One suspect has been arrested in connection with the crime. The Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Bagega, has ordered discreet Investigation into the matter.”
