A 25-year-old man, Waidi Soremi, got apprehended for stealing the head of his dead neighbor, Taiwo Mesioye.
Mesioye was recently buried on Aboaba Street, Itori-Oke, Ewekoro, Ogun state.
The suspect revealed he and his cohorts visited the area around 12 midnight and finished their mission around 3a.m.
CrimePuzzle reports that the suspect was arrested alongside two of his childhood friends, Samson Erinle, 25, and Taiwo Erinle, 23.
The suspect claimed they had opted for the alternative means to secure wealth due to their poor living condition.
Waidi said he got the idea of getting rich quick when he stumbled on his late herbalist father’s book which he introduced to Samson who had just completed his Islamic studies.
Samson, also known as Alfa, while going through the book, then took special interest on the aspect of money-making ritual.
The opportunity to make money fast came when Mesioye, died in their area and the suspects graced the funeral, after which Alfa informed them that it was time for them to get out of poverty by stealing Mesioye’s head.
