Operatives of the Osun State Police Command have arrested four suspects for allegedly killing a 45-year-old Aminat Usman in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola, who made this known during the parade of the suspects in Osogbo said their arrests followed a report of a missing person lodged by the victim’s son.

According to Mrs Opalola, the suspect’s confession led to the arrest of three others, all of whom had confessed about the individual roles they played in their sinister effort to use the victim for money ritual.

She further said that a female neighbour of one of the suspects, who helped him conceal his share of the powdery substance, was arrested but was later granted administrative bail because she is nursing a four-month-old baby.

“On March 18, a complainant reported at Apomu Division that on March 13, at about 10 am, his mother, Aminat Usman, 45, left home for lyana Ajia-Ibadan, Oyo State, to pay a visit to Onifade Oyekanmi.

 He stated that since his mother left home, her cell phones were switched off, her whereabouts were unknown and he strongly suspected that the said Oyekanmi, who is an herbalist, knew about his mother’s disappearance.

Onifade Oyekanmi was subsequently arrested and the case was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Osogbo, Osun, for further and discreet investigation,” Opalola said.

“Thereafter, search warrants were executed on the houses and premises of the suspects, where three bottles containing black substances suspected to be burnt human parts, two cutlasses, a big black clay pot and some black soaps were recovered,” the police spokesperson said.
