Owolabi Mesioye, a herbalist, and his friend, Oloruntoyin, have been arrested by the Ogun State police Command for allegedly killing a man for human sacrifice.
According to a report by TheNation, the offense was committed at about 10 pm on March 28, 2019, at Alaako-Ijeun Egboro area of Abeokuta, and vital organs of the victim were removed.
Oloruntoyin allegedly lured the victim to his home near Mesioye’s residence at night, and then beckoned to the herbalist that he had brought the sacrificial man for the propitiation they earlier discussed.
The duo lured the victim to the back of Oloruntoyin’s residence, where they allegedly hit him with a charm that made him unconscious.
Neighbours who saw Oloruntoyin when he brought the undientified man home were said to have become suspicious when they did not see him man again.
The worried neighbours then launched a search for the missing man for two days before they found his mutilated body floating on a fish pond at the back of Oloruntoyin’s house.
