ABEOKUTA - The Ogun State Police Command has disclosed that the four teenagers involved in ritual killing of their friend's girlfriend will be charged to court on Thursday.

The State Police Public Relations officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi said the police has concluded its investigation following the substantial evidence against them and will charged them to court in two days time for murder and conspiracy.

It would be recalled that the four teenager boys were arrested at the early hours of Saturday for slaughtering a 16-year-old girl, Sofiat Kehinde and burnt her head for money ritual purpose.

The suspects, Wariz Oladeinde 17years, Soliu Majekodunmi 18 years, Abdul Gafar Lukmon 19years and Mustakeem Balogun 20 years old were all arrested by the Adatan Police Divisional headquarters.

Sofiat’s boyfriend, Soliu, in an interview with THE ENCOUNTER NEWS confessed that when the victim visited him on Friday, he strangled her and cut off her head immediately with the aid of his accomplices.

Soliu explained how they had contributed money and purchased other ingredients needed for the ritual, while awaiting the day they would kill the lady, who he said was introduced to him in December 2021.

According to him, Mustakeem, who used to attend the same Islamic society (Asalatu) with Sofiat, was the arrow head of the heinous act, saying he was the one who brought the guidelines from Facebook and pestered the group of friends to carryout the act so as to become rich quickly.

He 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.”

Soliu told newsmen that he had regretted his action, urging other youths who are in a hurry to make money quickly to wait for their time.

“I have regrets. If I knew it would end up like this I would not have gotten myself involved in the act. My advice to those who don’t want to wait for their time is that, they should please wait for their time,” he said.
