Police detectives have arrested three suspected fake native doctors who slaughter people for ritual purposes in Lagos. The suspects were identified as Mrs Folade Folake, Mary Iwinkunle and Gbenga Fadele.
LEADERSHIP Weekend gathered that the suspects were caught with the picture of an unknown boy who was slaughtered and cut into parts for money rituals. It was reported that the suspects behind the cruel act were arrested with the human parts. The suspects have so far been arrested and detained at the SCIID, Panti, Yaba, Lagos in connection with the dastardly act. It was learnt that the police arrested the suspects and intercepted the human parts inside a bag at Cele Nizer area along Aiyetoro, Badagry expressway, Lagos.
It was also gathered that when police detectives searched the bag Folake was carrying, it was discovered that it contained human parts and assorted charms. She was then arrested and detained by the police detectives while the parts were recovered as exhibits and transferred to SCIID for further investigation. It was gathered that during the investigation, the photograph of the boy who was murdered was recovered but the details of the boy were not known. Folake mentioned Mary Iwinkunle and Gbenga Fadele as accomplices and Gbenga was arrested. They were later charged before the Ebute Metta Magistrates’ court for murder. When they were arraigned, the prosecutor, Inspector Bayo, informed the court that it was a clear case of murder for ritual purposes because the cut parts and charms were recovered from the defendants. Thus, the magistrate, Mr OO Olatunji, did not take their plea and ordered them to be remanded in prison custody. The court directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to DPP for advice.
It was gathered that the case might be transferred to the High Court, which has a higher jurisdiction to try murder cases.
