The Lagos state police command has arrested a suspected yahoo boy identified as Afeez Olalere for allegedly killing his younger brother for money ritual.
The 32-year-old while being paraded confessed to the crime and claimed his mother asked him to do it.
According to him, his mother encouraged him to kill his younger brother after a herbalist she took him to told them that he has to “sacrifice one life and that person must be a sibling to him”.
He revealed that they gave his 21-year-old brother poison, and he died after 20 minutes of drinking it.
Speaking further, he said that they removed the body parts they needed while his remains were wrapped and taken to the mortuary.
“My mother took me to a herbalist who told me if I want to be successful in the yahoo business, I will have to sacrifice one life and that person must be a sibling to me.
“The things he would need to prepare a concoction with are his thumbs, his hair, fingers and a passport photograph. So, we went back home and thought about it, then my mother suggested that we use my younger brother since he is just 21 years old.
“She also brought the poison which we gave him to eat. He died within 20minutes after consuming the food. I was the one who cut out the body parts needed. We then wrapped his dead body and headed to the mortuary.” He said.
Olalere was arrested during a stop-and-search operation along Itamaga, Ikorodu Road, Lagos State.
