The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 63-year-old man, Korede Odubela, for allegedly killing his 16-year-old stepdaughter, Amudat Oshimodi, for ritual purposes, and selling her head for N3,000.

New Telegraph reports that Odubela connived with another suspect, Lekan Lawal, to murder the teenager at Imosan area in Ijebu-Ode Local Government Area of the state.

While parading the suspects at the State Command Headquarters at Eleweran, Abeokuta, the State Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, said that men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad received information about their activities and swooped on them on Monday, November 7, 2016.

While answering questions from journalists, Odubela said the girl's mother said she should be killed because she was always stealing her mother’s money.

“The mother said we should kill her as a sacrifice for other children she had. She (Oshimodi) normally slept by the outside door.

On that day, around 12 midnight, I invited Lekan Lawal, and he held the girl by the neck and strangled her while I held her legs.

I then sold the head to my son, Seun, who is a herbalist. He gave me a part payment of N3,000."

He added that the suspects had been involved in ritual killings and sale of human parts in Ijebu-Ode area before eventually meeting their waterloo.
