The Lagos State police command has arrested four persons for alleged murder of their friend for moneymaking rituals. The suspects are presently being interrogated at the homicide section of the State Criminal and Intelligence Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba.

One of the suspects, simply identified as Daniel, confessed that: “We are from Chibok in Maiduguri, Borno State. We are four that killed our friend, Isaiah James, for ritual purposes, though it was not our initial plan to do so. We wanted to do charms to excel in advance fee fraud, known as 419, but the native doctor who we consulted told us that he won’t do charms for us with regards 419.

“We asked why and he told us that we are not educated. He told us that we should be literate before we can do 419 successfully. We asked if there was another alternative and he said he would perform a ritual out of sympathy for us. He told us to provide a human heart. That was the beginning of our problems.

“When the herbalist told us to bring a human heart, we told him to help us organise it. He promised to do so and charged us N100,000. We paid him N60,000 and promised to balance the N40,000. Few days later, the native doctor called us to say that one of his boys who he sent on the mission for the human heart hunting was shot in the hand by vigilance group members. He said he won’t be able to provide us with the heart and asked us to provide it ourselves,” he narrated.

According to Daniel, they became confused on their next plan of action until the gang leader identified as Audu, suggested that he would lure his cousin, who is also a friend to Daniel to where they would kill him and pluck out his heart for the ritual.

Continuing, he said: “We called him on phone and told him to meet us at a drinking joint in Ajah, Lagos. He agreed to meet us. He did not suspect foul play and was comfortable with us. We met at night and we started drinking local gin until the wee hours.

“We bought him fried yam. At about 1:00a.m. we said we should go home. As we were walking home, Audu who was armed with a knife, said he was going to urinate. So all of us including our target joined Audu to a corner to urinate. It was at that corner that we all rushed at him, pulled him down and hit him with hard objects and Audu stabbed him.

“When we noticed that he was dying, Ayuba butchered him, searched inside, but he could not find the heart. I collected the knife from him and put my hand inside, I found the heart. His heart was still alive and pumping blood, I pulled it out with the help of the knife.

“We took it to the native doctor at Ijebu Ode, Ogun State. He used it to prepare beans for us. He promised that after eating the beans porridge, we would start making big money. He said that anything we laid our hands must prosper. He requested for the N40,000 balance which we paid him. We had just finished the meal when the police came to pick me.

“A lady who saw us the night we killed Isaiah, told his people that she saw us in company of Isaiah. We are all from Chibok in Maiduguri. When the police came to me, I confessed. I did not feel anything killing him, human being is the same thing as animals. My regret is that we did not succeed in making the money and that the native doctor escaped arrest,” he added.

@Timjer: Agreed. This is fucked up on a level rarely seen even here. Ritual murder for material gain... even if it worked, it would still be abhorrent. It doesn't, so it becomes stupidity as well as evil. Unfortunate that the 'doctor' who put them up to it escaped, though at least the killers were arrested.

I mean, how in the actual hell can something like this still happen in our society? Our world? Silly superstitions like we're used to is one thing. Ritualistic murder & cannibalism for the sake of scamming people!? I- I just can't process it! I literally cannot find words for just how I feel about this. This is sickening on a level beyond human comprehension.

After the hideousness in the OP - and at least those scenes in "Apocalypto" were merely visual effects - cute fuzzies.

Your argument is valid. b^_^d

I'm sorry, but my calendar seems broken. It thinks that we're in 2018.

The people who invent these rituals, the people who somehow believe in them... I don't know which ones are more deranged. How in this day and age, in any corner of the world, can people still believe in this madness? If you understand electronic banking you should know by default money doesn't come from fucking hocus pocus.

What good would money have been to these idiots even if this "ritual" somehow dumped cash in their laps? There'd still be blood on their hands, if they have anything resembling a conscience it will torment them for the rest of their lives, if their consciences don't hound them police certainly will, and each of those participants know exactly what their friendship is worth and will never be able to trust anyone - least of all each other - ever again and will have to lay awake wondering if they'll turn on each other either by spilling their guts to the authorities or deciding they need just a little bit more blood money.

I think these so-called "Traditional Healers/Witchdoctors" are merely murderers who get off on killing people but prefer to get others to do it. A true medicine person/shaman/etc. wouldn't see this as valid.

Scaming is also another motive but these freaks pick murder as the vehicle.

Same with the witch hunts.

They always pick women, children and the elderly....never big fit grown men. Clearly anti-woman/kid/elderly.

It's a scam, hate crime and proxy serial killing. That's all.

This is not Shamanism/Trad-Healer stuff. This is goofballs.
