The teenage boys that murdered one Sofiat Kehinde in Ogun State for money ritual have confessed they got the guidelines for the heinous act through a page on popular social media platform, Facebook.
Sofiat, who was said to be the girlfriend of one of the boys, was slaughtered and her head put in a local pot to be burnt for money ritual.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that the teenage boys, Wariz Oladeinde; Abdulgafar Lukman; Mustakeem Balogun; and Soliu Majekodunmi, the boyfriend of the slain girl were caught at the Oke Aregba area of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Saturday while burning Sofiat’s head.
While being paraded on Monday at the State Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, Sofiat’s boyfriend, Soliu, confessed that he strangled her and cut off her head with the aid of his accomplices when she visited him on Friday.
He stated that they were following ritual guidelines from a Facebook page.
Soliu said, “Last year December, Mustakeem gave me her number that I should be dating her. The first time Sofiat came to my house, I informed Mustakeem that she was around and that she had agreed to my proposal for a relationship.
“The second time Sofiat came, I told him, but he told me that she is not a good girl and advised that we should use her (for money rituals).
“Mustakeem said he saw a guideline for ‘Osole’ (money ritual) on Facebook and he had a screenshot of it.
“Since then, he had been disturbing me that we should use Sofiat for money ritual, but I didn’t agree with him.
“In fact, on many occasions, I lied to Sofiat that I am not at home just to dissuade her from coming.
“During the process, Mustakeem had ensured that we all make contributions towards other items needed for the ritual.
“So, eventually, Sofiat came to my house on Friday. I was inside my room with her while Mustakeem was outside. Later Mustakeem told me that we should go ahead and use her since all other needed items for the rituals are ready.”
