"Alfa Asked Me To Bring Human Heart, Hands For Money Ritual" - Herbalist Confesses

A 62-year-old Nigerian man said to be and herbalist, identified as Ganiyu Idowu, on Thursday claimed that an Islamic cleric, named Bamigbola Edun, aka alfa, was the one that told him to get a human heart and two hands, with which he would prepare a ritual that had the potency to produce N11million.

The man was one of the 19 suspects paraded by the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, at the command’s headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, for offences ranging from kidnapping and attempted ritual killing, to armed robbery and threat to life.

According to report, paraded alongside Idowu and Edun was a 62-year-old motorcyclist, Mathew Odunewu, who was alleged to be an accomplice, with whom they conspired, kidnapped and attempted to kill one Ganiu, an apprentice to Idowu, for alleged money ritual, in the Oriyanrin area of Abeokuta.

The police boss who further disclosed that his men got wind of their plan and mounted surveillance on the area, said their efforts paid off on the 30th of August, 2018, around 11pm by Ogun River bank, when three of them surfaced with their supposed victim, Ganiu.

“On getting to the river bank, the three men grabbed the fourth person, who is the youngest among them, laid him on the ground and were about to slaughter him like a lamb when policemen swooped on them.” He said.

While adding that when the suspects were arrested, they had polythene bags with them, he said that they confessed that they would have put Ganiu’s body parts inside the bags if they had succeeded in killing him.

According to report, when asked by newsmen what informed their action, the herbalist said it was the alfa who asked him to get a human heart and two hands. He added that the 50-year-old cleric promised that the human parts would be used for ritual and would fetch them N11million.

“It is true that I am an herbalist, but it was this alfa who asked me to get a human heart and hands.

“Initially, I did not want to do it, but he promised that we would get N11m from the ritual.

“At first, we attempted to kidnap a boy, who escaped before I decided to use my apprentice, Ganiu.

“But during our attempt to slaughter Ganiu, the police caught and arrested us.” He said.

But in his defense, the limping alfa, who denied having a hand in the conspiracy, argued that he had never killed a chicken, let alone a human being in Yoruba, said;

“I knew nothing about what he said; I am being framed.”
