The suspects who were arrested and paraded by the Osun State Police Command on December 28, 2018, in Ifon, reportedly chopped off the head of the businessman for ritual purpose.
The State’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, who confirmed the incident said that the suspects were allegedly contracted by another businessman, Yekini Ayinde aka Abija, who paid them N200,000 to kill the deceased. According to the suspects, Isiaka had supplied bags of rice to Abija who didn’t want to pay for the goods after selling them, hence his contract to to kill him. Amusat who narrated how they killed the businessman.
The gang contacted the deceased to supply him 500 bags of rice. He said the deceased was lured into making the supply in Osogbo, from Saki in Oyo State, lodged in an hotel after the goods were supplied and later taken out to be killed. He said Ayinde contracted the arrested suspects, Dauda Amusat, known as Adasi; and Pariola Kabiru, with five others, to kill the businessman after collecting the money initially paid to him for the supply.
When we got to the bush, Abija told the driver to stop and he gave us a sign. We quickly overpowered Isiaka and tied him with a rope. Kabiru wanted to kill him with his gun but we later decided to use a knife to cut his throat. After killing him, I remembered that I needed a human head for money ritual and I quickly removed his head.
I was roasting the head and preparing other items needed for the ritual when some policemen came. I managed to escape that day. I ran away from Ifon but they eventually apprehended me on December 28, 2018.”
