Two knives used to kill and cut her body parts, a white cloth bag containing substance inside a gourd where the alleged powder parts were kept and a bottle of Stallion Schnapps were also recovered.
“The police will continue with their resolute determination to stamp out crimes and criminality in the society, members of the public should be careful in having absolute trust in individuals or groups who are strangers, especially those they met on social media or those who claimed to possess the power of clairvoyance or ability to combat and treat successfully terminal diseases or possessed solutions to social and marital challenges,” he said.
Speaking with journalists, the suspect said he gained experience from his former boss who happened to be a prophet of Cherubim and Seraphim.
“Me and the woman have been chatting on Facebook since January, this year. I later invited her to Igbo Ora. Meanwhile, Mutiu, a friend had already told me about his challenges in life. He told me he was ready for money rituals. So, I decided to use the woman for money for him.
“When the woman later arrived from Ilorin, I went to pick her to Igbo-Ora, from Iseyin. On her arrival at my house, on 31st of May, this year, I gave her sleeping drugs after she complained about pains in her body, she slept off and I cut off her head, and arms. Her head was later burnt to ashes for money rituals,” he confessed .
