Operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) have arrested an herbalist, who allegedly killed his lover and sold her body parts to different herbalists, Muslim clerics and pastors for ritual at the rate of N1000 per part.
IRT Operatives, led by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mr Abba Kyari, have arrested 13 herbalists so far involved the butchering and selling of the victim’s body parts, while many others are still at large.
According to reports, the tracking and eventual arrest of the suspects in different parts of Ogun State would not have been possible, if not for the active participation of the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson and his men in the investigation, which stretched into weeks.
The prime suspect, Segun Olaniyi, claimed that the victim, Abosede Iyada, was his lover. He also admitted orchestrating her murder for money-making ritual.
Operatives launched investigation into the case on November 15 following a letter of complaint from Abosede’s parents, Mr and Mrs Segun Adeyemi, residing at Plot ‘2’ Adio Idris Close, Oke Oko in Ifo Local Government Area. The complaint was lodged at the IRT office, Ogun State Annex.
According to the victim’s parents, Abosede, married and mother of a child left her husband’s house in the morning of that fateful day to visit Olaniyi popularly known as “Agba Isegun,”a native doctor at Ifo area.
Since then Abosede appeared to have disappeared into thin air. Attempts to call her phone were abortive as it remained permanently switched off.
