The Kwara State Police Command have paraded two brothers Saidi Amadu, Idris Amadu alongside three others for gruesomely murdering two persons for ritual purposes.
The suspects were arrested in connection with the killings of Fasilat Azeez and Rohimat Kehinde last week Tuesday and dumping the bodies of the victims at the house of Ayodele Amadu, their elder brother who is now in prison.
They decided to implicate Ayodele Amadu because he took the larger portion of the property left behind by their late father
The Kwara State Police Commissioner, Mr. Sam Okaula, who complained about the rising cases of ritual killings in the state, explained that the victims, Fasilat Azeez and Rohimat Kehinde, were hawking drugs and other items around Gaa-Arasiko via Alapa last week when they were waylaid and gruesomely killed.
He added that the remains of the victims were dumped in the compound of Ayodele Amadu, the elder brother of the suspects, to implicate him. It led to the said Ayodele Amadu’s arrest.
Interestingly, he said, the suspects, Saidi Amadu, Idris Amadu and Quadri Ayodele, confessed that they conspired to commit the crime to implicate their eldest brother for taking a larger portion of the property left behind by their late father.
Okaula also disclosed that the fifth suspect, Segun Bamidele, 30, also waylaid one Sunday Owolabi in Agbebi farm, on the outskirts of Omu-Aran, cut off his head and took it to a herbalist.
He said the herbalist, who refused to buy the human head, immediately alerted the village head, who informed the police, leading to the suspect’s arrest.
