A native doctor simply identified as Ogunkoya has been arrested in Ogun State for allegedly killing and using a pastor for rituals.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi identified the slain cleric as Pastor Ezekiel Kalejaiye.
He disclosed that Ogunkoya, 48, was arrested by men of the command on routine stop and search duty along Isoyin Road.
The native doctor reportedly told the police that, “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 Isoyin.
“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.”
Oyeyemi said Ogunkoya will be charged to court for murder upon the conclusion of investigations.
