“The two men met in a commercial bus. Suleiman had offered to pay the transport fare of Afobaje after the conductor was about embarrassing him because he had no change. The Alfa then said he would like to know him better for being so gracious to him (Alfa). So, Suleiman gave the Alfa his address and asked him to visit. That was how the friendship started. From what we found out, Suleiman, who worked as a crane operator, would collect his salary and give half of it to Alfa at the end of the month and that happened for a long time.”a source who knew both men said
Another source narrated how the late Suleiman was invited by Alfa Rafiu at about 8pm and how he connived with security guards in the area to kill and share the body part of his friend
“As soon as the victim got to the street’s gate, the security guards surrounded him and asked who he was looking for. When he told them, they flogged him with charms and he died. They then called the Alfa to come and when he arrived, they shared his body parts. While one collected his head, another demanded all his intestines, while another asked for his breasts, which were given out.” the source said
Brother to late Suleiman, Yinusa Wahab, said his brother’s boss was the first to notify his wife of his absence from work. The wife then called him and prevailed on him to go in search of her husband at the Alfa’s place where they went with policemen on Monday February 16th and found his mutilated finger inside a pot with few Naira notes and his headless body in a stream close to his house.
