Police nab Nigerian prophet for allegedly killing lover for ritual

A 42-year-old prophet, Olusola Akindele,
has been arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly
killing his lover, identified as Iya Anu, for ritual.

Akindele’s alleged accomplice, Pastor Ayodele Bamiduro, was equally arrested by the police.

The prophet was said to have invited Iya
Anu to his rented apartment in Itoki, Agbado, in the Ifo Local
Government Area of the state, where he allegedly killed her after they
had had sex.

Akindele was said to have used a pestle-like wood to smash her head.


He was said to have cut off her head,
hands, and removed her intestines which he took to the pastor, Bamiduro,
the founder of Lion of Judah Church of Christ on Robiyan Street, Abule

The two suspects were later driven to the church, where the head, hands and intestines were buried on the premises.


Akindele, who is also a bricklayer,
allegedly dumped the decapitated body of the deceased in an uncompleted
building next to a bungalow where he lived.

 The decomposing body was recovered by the police and men of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria in the area.

The state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, described the act as conspiracy, murder and ritualism.

He said on August 10, 2018, the Baale
of Igbore, Femi Kujore, reported the discovery of a decomposing
headless body in an uncompleted building in the community to the police
at the Agbado Police Division.

He said Akindele confessed that the deceased was his lover and they had dated for two years before he killed her.

Iliyasu said, “On that day, the woman
went to visit him as usual and after they made love, the woman dozed
off. The suspect surreptitiously brought out a pestle-like wood with
which he smashed her head.

“He later cut off her head and two hands before he threw the remains into the uncompleted building next to his residence.

“The severed head and the two hands of
the victim were buried at the back of the Lion of Judah Church of Christ
at Robiyan Avenue belonging to Ayodele Bamiduro.”

Akindele, however, told newsmen that he did not know why he killed his lover.

He said, “We had been lovers for two years; she sold alcoholic drinks and she had been pestering me to help her with N10,000.

“That day, she came as usual and I never knew what came upon me as I killed her by smashing her head.”

Bamiduro said although he knew Akindele,  he never sent him to kill anyone; a claim that was corroborated by the latter.

 Iliyasu said the suspects would face the full wrath of the law as they
would be arraigned in a court after the completion of investigation.

Also arrested alongside the suspects was the landlord who gave out the apartment to Akindele, Akinola Oyedele.
