20-yr-old herbalist who killed popular hotelier, Alhaji Jimoh Bello, for ‘troubling’ him after a failed money ritual process has been arrested, more than six months after his murder.
According to a statement by the PPRO, Ogun State Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, released on Thursday, the suspect, 20-year-old herbalist, Misipode Dosu, was arrested following an intelligence and technical based investigation.
“The suspect who was last seen with the deceased, confessed that the deceased contracted him for a money-making ritual, for which he billed him N300,000 out of which N250,000 had been paid.
But after some time, the deceased started pressurizing him that he had not seen any positive outcome of the ritual. Out of fear that the deceased might report him to the police for obtaining money from him under false pretence, he invited him to come for the final stage of the ritual at Idiroko.
On getting there, he gave him a concoction prepared with a poisonous substance to eat and the man slumped and died immediately he ate the concoction. The suspect there and then put the deceased into the booth of his car and drove the car and parked it at the place where the corpse was recovered,” Oyeyemi said in the statement.
Recall that in May, it was reported that the hotelier left his house in Owode for Idiroko and he was declared missing by his family. Few days later, the decomposing body of the deceased, was found in the trunk of his car in Omo-Ilu Owotedo area, via Idiroko town.
