The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, who paraded them at the state Police Command headquarters in Osogbo, the state capital, disclosed that the police investigation had revealed that the suspects have killed many people before they were arrested.

According to the CP, Amusat was arrested on December 28, 2018, at about 4 pm at Ifon-Osun in Orolu Local Government Area of Osun State.

The police boss said the 36-year-old Amusat was arrested for conspiracy and murder of a 42 years old Sanusi Isiaka, who was allegedly killed on May 14, 2017 around 9 pm near Slava Construction Company along Iwo-road, Osogbo.

He explained that the head of the deceased was cut off by the suspects before they later used it for rituals.

He said: “The deceased was deceitfully lured from Saki in Oyo state to Osogbo few days before his death by one of the principal suspects, Yekini Ayinde (aka Abija), now at large.”

The CP said that the deceased was asked to deliver 500 bags of rice and was later lodged in a hotel with expectation of getting money for the sale of rice through Ayinde.

“The deceased was taken out to the scene where he was assassinated and the money was stolen and shared by the suspects.

He further disclosed that the suspect confessed his statement to the police that seven of them perpetrated the killing, adding that four of them used the dismembered head for ritual.

Speaking with reporters, Amusat confessed to the crime, admitting that he put a rope on the neck of the deceased while his colleagues slew him with a knife.

He said: “I am selling beer in Ifon-Osun where I know Abija. He promised to give us N200,000 if we can help him kill the man. He sent his people to bring the man to us at Okefia, Osogbo. When we finished the job, he gave Oyama N65,000, he gave me N70,000 so that I can use N5,000 to buy beer for people the following day. I took the head of the deceased as an opportunity to use it for money ritual.”

Meanwhile, the two suspected cultists, Seyi (26 years) and Afeez (26 years) were paraded for being members of a secret cult.

Afeez confessed that he shot one Bode and killed him, adding that “I also shot another person but he did not die. Those people I shot are members of Aye. He later died when we, “Eye and Aye fraternity were fighting.

“I have a gunshot in my body. They have tried to kill me before I joined the group. But God saved me. I made a mistake because I was supposed to forgive but I did not forgive.”

He confessed that he joined the secret cult group, Eye, in 2009 at Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, where he studied Ordinary National Diploma in Accountancy.
