THE Ogun State Police Command has arrested a native doctor for allegedly killing a pastor for rituals. Pastor Kalejaiye Ezekiel had allegedly visited the suspect, Ogunkoya, 48, for some spiritual works concerning his church and the witchdoctor, who claimed that he needed a man for the rituals, decided to use Ezekiel for the job. Ogunkoya told the police: “The pastor came to me for power so that his church would grow; I used the opportunity to use him for my personal job. I mixed some sleeping solution for the pastor to drink and he slept off moments afterward. As he dozed off, I picked a knife and slaughtered him. I am a native doctor and I have helped so many people, including pastors who want their congregation to grow in the area.
“This particular incident happened because I personally needed human parts for a particular concoction that I wanted to prepare for one of my clients
in Iseyin. “When the pastor came, saying that he wanted power so that his congregation could grow, I used the opportunity to kill him and used the needed parts for the concoction. “I gave him some solution to drink
and he fell deeply asleep and that afforded me the time to slaughter him
and cut out the parts I needed for my concoction.
“I know I have done wrong, but I want forgiveness because if you go around and ask about me, people will tell you that I am a good person. This one just happened the way it did.” Ogun State police public relations officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the native doctor, who was arrested by men on routine stop-and-search duty along Iseyin Road would be seriously profiled to know how many people he may have killed in the same manner.
Oyeyemi said that at the end of investigation, the suspect would be charged
to court for murder.
