A herbalist, Lajuwon Ogunleye, his wife, Adetutu Apalaya and one Fatai Sefiu, has been arrested by the Ogun police command for conspiracy and murder of a 7-year-old boy, Pelumi Apalaya, for ritual purpose.
While confirming the arrest, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Ogun State Police Public Relations man, DSP, said the suspects were arrested on April 22, stating that the suspects were arrested following information received by the police at Abigi Divisional Headquarters, Ogun Waterside Local Government Area of the state.
According to the information, the boy, without any sign of sickness, suddenly slumped and died; a development, aroused the suspicion of people around that the boy might have been used for ritual.
Upon their suspicion, the people around started monitoring the herbalist, who incidentally happened to be the step-father of the deceased boy and his wife who is the mother of the boy.
Fatai Sefiu who conspired with the parents of the deceased, had reportedly told the detectives that the boy was actually used for ritual by the couple, revealing that the couple had concluded plans to use their son for rituals before he was co-opted into the deal
The mother of the victim Adetutu Apalaya who first denied having knowledge of her husband plan to use her son for ritual was dumbfounded when asked whether or not she followed them to the bush where her son was buried and the mode of burial of the boy
