The Ogun State So-Safe Corps have arrested a 20-year-old boy identified as Ridwan at Oshoku village, Ijebu North Local Government Area of the state.
Ridwan confessed that he killed his biological father for money ritual.
The Commander of So-Safe Corps in the state, Soji Ganzallo, in a statement released through the corps spokesman, Moruf Yusuf, said at about 12 am on Thursday, August 31, officers of the corps on routine patrol heard a strange noise in a building at Oshoku.
The officers were said to have made their way into the building to confirm what was happening, “but to the officers’ dismay, they found a man’s body lying lifeless in a pool of his own blood and the alleged killer fled the scene.”
The statement quoted Ganzallo as having instructed the Zonal Commander, Ijebu Zonal Command, Marcus Ayankoya, to get the suspected killer arrested within 24 hours.
He said, “The suspected killer was nabbed where he was hiding in a bush.
“He confessed to have killed his father, Ishau with a rope tied to his neck and a knife used to remove the needed parts of his body for ritual purposes.”
The corps commander noted that the alleged killer told the officers of the corps during interrogation that “he only removed the private part, larynx, and just four teeth of his father as requested by a ritualist he identified as Baba Kekere.”
Ganzallo further revealed that when he was asked about the whereabouts of the ritualist, he refused to give details.
