How Seven Suspected Ritualists Lured, Murdered And Dismembered 35-Yr-Old Woman In Ogun Shrine


THE Police in Ogun State have uncovered a shrine in Atan-Otta and arrested a seven-member criminal gang of suspected ritualists who specialized in abducting and killing their victims and thereafter harvested their body parts.

A search conducted at the shrine in the Igbo Olomi area of Atan-Otta, belonging to one Abidemi Moses on 3 February, led to a stunning discovery of 10 female handbags, two 25 litre gallons containing human parts, one axe, and two cement sacks containing human bones. 

Also discovered were an axe, three local pots, one wooden box containing ritual money, two ‘Bagco’ bags containing human parts and bones, two gallons containing charms made of human parts, crown and staff-of-office of Obas Isegun, Zone 1, Atan-Otta, crown and staff-of-office of Oluwo Masote of Ifo Zone, Ogun State.

One of the recovered bags was identified by the relatives of one Adijat Sulaimon, 35, who was declared missing following a report made at the Onipanu Divisional Police Headquarters, Otta on 9 January 2024, at about 10:00 am. 

Adijat, Police investigation revealed, was invited out on a date to Sunshine Hotel in Atan-Otta by one Adebayo Olawale Azeez (m) of Ajegunle Road, also in Atan-Otta, and thereafter, taken to the said shrine, where she was killed and her body parts dismembered. 

All efforts by her relatives to locate her whereabouts were to no avail, as her mobile phone, since then, went off. 

Consequently, the Anti-kidnapping Unit, a tactical team of Ogun State Police Command was drafted to unravel the mystery behind her disappearance. 

The team embarked on a technical-based investigation, leading to the arrest of seven suspects, who allegedly participated actively in the abduction and eventual murder of the missing Adijat. 

The all male suspects, paraded on Thursday, 15 February, by the Ogun State Police Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Mustapha Alamutu are Moses Abidemi, Oluwo Samuel Monday, Prophet Peter Oluwalolese, Akinwunmi Ifatosin, Prophet Jamiu Yusuf, Sheriff Agbai and Osojieahen Alioneitouria. 

All the suspects confessed to the alleged crime and their respective roles in the dastardly murder of Adijat, even as Investigation is ongoing to arrest other fleeing members of the gang. 

Police investigation revealed that on 19 November 2023, Sheriff Agbai and Osojieahen Alioneitouria contacted one Oluwo Samuel Monday (a.k.a Oluwo Mandela) to perform a money ritual that could yield Two Hundred Million Naira (N200,000,000.00) within seven days.

Oluwo Mandela consequently charged the duo of Sheriff and Osojieahen the sum of  Eight Hundred Thousand Naira (N800,000) and agreed to prepare the materials for the money ritual. 

To commence the job, Oluwo Samuel contacted one of his allies in the criminal act, Peter Oluwalolese who, Police investigation revealed, was not new in the trade of human parts. 

Peter, a self-acclaimed prophet of a white garment church in Ibadan, Oyo State, was to source for mutilated body parts of a lady between the ages of 18 and 20, comprising the head, two breasts, vagina and her two wrists. 

Peter, on his part, contacted another colleague of his, Prophet Jamiu Yusuf (a.k.a. Eri Mose) in Lagos, notorious for the supply of human parts who liaised with Abidemi Moses (a.k.a. Asela), an herbalist at Atan Otta.

Abidemi, also a herbalist who was under the tutelage of one Adebayo Olawale Azeez, now at large, had been in the business of human parts harvesting for the past three years, demanded Six Hundred Thousand Naira (N600,000.00) to source the needed material (a lady). 

Adebayo Olawale Azeez finally accomplished the mission on 9 January 2024 by inviting the then missing Adijat on a date to Sunshine Hotel, Atan Otta, and was thereafter taken to Abidemi Moses’ shrine at Igbo Olomi, also in  Atan Otta, where she was killed by Abidemi Moses and others now at large. 

Her dismembered body parts were taken to Abidemi Moses’ house at Atan Otta, where  Oluwo Samuel Monday and Prophet Peter Oluwalolese were anxiously waiting for the body parts. 

Oluwo Samuel Monday collected the head, the two breasts, the vagina and two wrists and other body parts of the deceased, dropped them in a local pot and placed the pot on the fire till the next day. 

A ram was slaughtered to appease the spirit of the deceased in the process of performing a money ritual. 

On completion of the ritual on 10 January 2024, Sheriff and Osojieahen collected the prepared charms and travelled back to their location in Edo State, only to be disappointed that, three weeks after using the charms, as against one week, it yielded no result. 

All the suspects, the Police said, would be charged in court as soon as the investigation was completed.
