Detectives from Ondo State Police Command have arrested a middle-aged man, Dolapo Daniel Babalola, who confessed to killing his childhood friend, Opeyemi Oyelakin, before stealing his motorcycle, Nigerian Tribune reports.

Babalola who said he sold the motorcycle in Ibadan, also confessed to selling Opeyemi’s body part to ritualists in Ibadan, Oyo state capital.

The suspect also confessed to killing his cousin and three other people but said he could not confirm if all his victims died after hitting them with sticks or stones before stealing their motorcycles.

But Police investigations revealed that Babalola also operated in Kabba, Kogi where he killed an Okada rider and killed another victim in Ife along Ilesha road in Osun state in April 2023.

The police said: “In June 2023, he killed another motorcyclist at Ondo town and dumped the corpse at a farm at Oboto bush along Bolorunduro road, Ondo town while in October 2023 the suspect and one Sikiru Mutiu aka S.K killed his childhood friend, dismembered his body and handed them to herbalists identified as Mujeeb Lawal and Shina Ojo for rituals.”

“The duo of Abiola Olatunji Toheeb and Ayegbajeje Micheal who are receivers of stolen items and one Oyediran Waheed Olaitan who helps in the production of fake documents to aid the selling of the stolen motorcycles have been arrested.”

Babalola while speaking said ”seven motorcycles have been retrieved from the receivers while one suspect is still at large. I have killed five persons including my cousin and my friend, and snatched their motorcycles.”

“I killed Opeyemi who is my friend, and sold the motorcycle to one man at Ibadan called Toheed. I do not sell human parts but I took part of one of my victims’ bodies to an herbalist in Ondo who promised to give me an Ifa Oracle.”

“At the point where we snatched motorcycles, anyone who struggled with me in the process got hit on the head with a fat stone and a stick. The herbalists said they used the body parts to prepare spiritual soap.”

The police also arrested one Adetokunbo Adesina, who claimed to have been hired to kill over 500 persons, after collecting N110,000 from his victim.

According to police investigation, Adetokunbo claimed to have been assigned by the three members of staff of the victim who hired him to kill her.

“Out of fear, the victim sent the sum of ₦110,000 to the account forwarded to her. Through Technical assistance, he was arrested.”

“But the suspect claimed he was sick and needed money to carry out a surgical operation and decided to use the threat as a means to extort the victim because she refused to employ him in her pure water factory.”

Similarly, the Ondo Police Commissioner, Peter Abayomi, said a 30-year-old man, Abdullahi Fatai, who was suspected of having killed his wife, was also arrested.

He said: “Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect and his wife Olayode Morenike (late) had always quarreled over the issue of going to check on her child in her former marriage.”

The suspects after killing the deceased took pictures of the body and locked the corpse in the house till late night before raising an alarm.”
