Two Men Arrested While Attempting To Exhume Corpse For Rituals In Ogun State
Oke Akindele, a 50-year-old herbalist, and Timothy Oniyide, 19, a welder, were arrested last night for attempting to exhume a corpse at Igan – Alade, Ogun State.
The third person, Monday Kugbi, fled upon seeing the officer but his pregnant wife, Mary Kugbi, 20, was later arrested. They're digging out a grave around 11:00 pm. The herbalist allegedly gave them a soap to bath with inside the grave.
The herbalist, who hails from Igangan, Benin Republic said Timothy came to him that he wanted a medicine that will make him to be bold and strong hearted. He came with about six other persons. .
He said: “I never gave Timothy or anybody soap to bath with on the corpse. I gave them only powder for incision. Contradicting the herbalist’s claim, Timothy maintained that the he gave him the soap to bath with inside a dug space on the grave.
He said: “I went to him to give me something that will make me rich and wealthy because my business was no more yielding profit. He gave me the soap and that was about a month ago and on Saturday again, I was there with six other persons and he gave us another powder to rub an incision on our chest and back. .
Other people that went with me to the herbalist are Prophet Adiitu of Celestial church, Ijoun, Baba Bukky (Prophet Omilende), Igbogila and one other Prophet from Cherubim and Seraphim and 3 of my friends.".
