Posted on November 23, 2022
A man, Idowu Abel, has been arrested for conspiring with his friend, Clement Adeniyi, to murder him bosom friend, Adekunle Muyiwa, and then cutting the body parts into pieces and selling them to a native doctor introduced by Pastor Ajadi for ritual purposes in Ogun State.
￼P.M.EXPRESS reports that the prime suspect, Idowu Abel, has confessed to the Police and linked his friend, Adeniyi alongside Pastor Ajadi over the brutal murder of his close friend, Adekunle Muyiwa, in cold blood.
This was confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Command, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who revealed that some of the body parts they sold to the native doctor included his head, heart and two hands to the buyer and the rest were buried secretly.
SP Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed that the trio of Abel, Adeniyi and Pastor Ajadi were arrested on Saturday, 19th November, 2022, “for abducting, killing and dismembering Muyiwa’s body for ritual purpose”.
He explained that the dastardly act got exposed when the elder of the victim, Oluwaseyi Adekunle, had on 15th November, 2022, reported at the Owode Yewa Divisional Headquarters, saying his younger brother left home on November 10, 2022, and never returned home.
Oyeyemi stated that the DPO of Owode Yewa Division, CSP Mohammed S. Baba, working on the complaint, detailed his crack detectives to unravel the mystery behind the sudden disappearance of late Muyiwa.
“In the course of their investigation, it was discovered that Idowu Abel was the person, who came to pick the missing man from his house on that fateful day and with the discovery, Abel was traced and arrested,” Oyeyemi said.
On interrogation, Oyeyemi quoted Abel as confessing that “the victim, who happened to be his bosom friend, was lured out by him and taken to his second accomplice, Clement Adeniyi”s farm where he was killed and butchered to pieces”.
He confessed further, according to Oyeyemi, that one herbalist introduced to him by Pastor Felix Ajadi had requested for a human head, heart, two hands and legs.
He was said to have stated further that the said herbalist, who is now at large, “promised to pay him the sum of N200,000 if he was able to get the listed human parts”.
Oyeyemi said Abel revealed that he was paid N80,000 as the advance payment, with a promise that the N120,000 would be paid on delivery of the items.
“After collecting the advance payment, Abel had gone to Muyiwa, asking him to follow him somewhere. As a long time friend, the victim, who did not suspect any foul play, followed him innocently. He was taken to Clement Adeniyi’s farm, where they killed him and dismembered his body. His head was cut off, the heart was also removed. The remaining parts were buried in a shallow grave in the said farm,” Oyeyemi said.
Abel’s confession led to the arrest of his accomplice and the Pastor. However, the herbalist, simply identified as Abeeb (a.k.a Boko), is still being hunted for by the Police.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide Section of the State CIID for discreet investigation, while directing that the fleeing herbalist must be brought to book.
