A 20-year-old man has been arrested by the So-Safe Corps in Ogun State for allegedly killing his father and sacrificing his body parts to a ritualist.
The suspect, identified as Ridwan, was arrested on Thursday, August 31, after he was found hiding in a bush in Oshoku Village, Ijebu North Local Government Area.
According to the So-Safe Corps, the officers who arrested Ridwan said they heard a strange noise coming from a nearby building and went to investigate. When they entered the building, they found the body of Ridwan’s father, Ishau, lying in a pool of blood.
Ridwan later confessed to killing his father and removing his private parts, larynx, and four teeth for ritual purposes. He said he was instructed to do so by a ritualist known as Baba Kekere.
The So-Safe Corps has handed Ridwan over to the Nigeria Police Force for further investigation and prosecution.
