Olaolu Falowo, a 26-year-old suspected ritualist, has told police why he killed a farmer and removed his body parts for money rituals in Kuseru Village, Ondo State.
The suspect was arrested alongside his father after the victim’s limps (2 legs and 2 arms and hands) were discovered in his house and human skull in a sack was discovered during a police detectives’ search.
The victim was allegedly murdered and his body parts removed by the suspected ritualist in collaboration with his father.
On Tuesday, September 6, while being paraded in Akure, the suspect claimed he killed the victim, whom he claimed was a lunatic, to relieve his pains.
The victim, according to him, was a madman who was sick and about to die in the forest.
“The victim is a sick madman. I killed him to reduce his pains and also took part of his body to use it for sacrifice,” he said.
A family member of the deceased, on the other hand, refuted the suspect’s claim, claiming that his brother was hail and hearty before being gruesomely murdered by the suspect on his farm.
“The suspect was in police custody for a case of attempted car theft and when a search was conducted in his house, human limps (2 legs and 2 arms hands) were recovered while a human skull in a sack was recovered from his father’s house,” said the command’s spokesperson, Funmi Odunlami.
