A 20-year-old boy has allegedly killed his father in the Ijebu-North area of Ogun State just because of three body parts he needed to be rich.
Felix Mordi reports that, after strangling the father with a rope tied to his neck, the boy, simply identified as Ridwan severed deceased manhood, the larynx and removed four of his teeth, as was demanded by a witch doctor he consulted.
Sadly, he could not achieve his aim of getting rich quick, despite the gruesome killing, as law of retribution caught up with him shortly after.
He was said to have gone into hiding in the bush, from where he was smoked out by operatives of the Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps, codenamed So-Safe Corps.

Officers of the Corps were on routine patrol of the axis at about 12:00m on Thursday, August 13 2023, and attracted by a distressful noise emanating from a building.
According to the statement, the officers were prompted to force their way into the building, only to behold a lifeless man lying in the pool of his own blood, while the alleged assassin took to his heels.
“On receipt of the information, the Corps Commader instructed the Zonal Commander, Ijebu Zonal Command, ACC Marcus Ayankoya, to get the suspected killer, Ridwan, arrested under 24hrs”, the statement revealed, adding that he was consequently trailed into the bush he went to take cover and was arrested.
