A 20-year-old man named Ridwan has been detained by the Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps, also known as “So-Safe Corps,” for reportedly killing his father, Ishau, in Ogun State, Nigeria, for ritualistic reasons.

This information was released in a statement on Friday by the Corps’ Commandant, Soji Ganzallo, via the Corps’ Director of Information and Public Relations, Moruf Yusuf.

The event allegedly took place at Oshoku Village in the state’s Ijebu North Local Government Area.

…at about 12:00hrs on Thursday, 31st August 2023, officers of the Corps on routine patrol heard a strange noise in a building while at Oshoku Village in Ijebu North Local Government Area. The Officers entered the building to confirm what was happening, but to the officers’ dismay, they found a man’s body lying lifeless in a pool of his own blood and the alleged killer fled the scene,”

The statement said that Ganzallo instructed the Zonal Commander, Ijebu Zonal Command, ACC Marcus Ayankoya to get the suspected killer arrested under 24 hours. Following this, Ridwan was nabbed where he was hiding in a bush.

He confessed to having killed his father with a rope tied to his neck and a knife used to remove the needed parts of his body for ritual purposes.

The declaration said that “the alleged killer told the officers of the Corps that he only removed the private part, larynx, and just four teeth of his father as requested by a ritualist he identified as Baba Kekere.”

The suspect refused to provide information when pressed about the ritualist’s whereabouts.

Meanwhile, the suspect has been transported to the Nigeria Police Force, Ogbere Divisional Headquarters for further investigation and eventual prosecution.
