During a police parade, Shodipe explained that the herbalist he was working with, Idris Ajani, who was also in the cell with him, called for some ingredients, which he wanted to eat to avoid being attacked spiritually.

Unknown to the police, the herbalist wanted to use the ingredients to facilitate Shodipe’s escape.

Shodipe explained that the herbalist fed him with the substance purchased, including dry gin and kolanut which aided his escape from the cell.

Shodipe added that after his escape, he went ahead to kill another woman as directed by the herbalist.

The public outcry following the latest killing prompted the renewed efforts by the police which eventually paid off with the rearrest of Shodipe.
