Herbalists sell heart of man seeking money ritual for N20,000 in Osogbo

Two Osogbo-based herbalists, Afolabi Faseun, 39, and Afolabi Fadare, 38, have confessed to killing and sharing the body part of one Moses Fasesan after seeking money-making ritual help from them.

Faseun also disclosed that the victim’s heart was sold to another herbalist, Adeleke Kabiru, for N20,000 for another ritual.

Fielding questions during a parade by the state police command in Osogbo, Faseun, and Fadare said the victim was given a substance at the house of one Taiwo, now on the run, after which he lost consciousness and was slaughtered.

Faseun said: “Moses was brought to me by one Taiye and was seeking money ritual but rather than help him, we resolved to use him for other rituals.

“So, we agreed to kill him at Taiwo’s house after giving him a concoction that made him unconscious. We slaughtered him and shared his part”.

Meanwhile, Fadare disclosed that they used the victim’s head and legs for customer boosting rituals.

“We both agreed to kill him because I believed the devil pushed us to it. We sold the heart to another herbalist, but the money was given to Faseun,” he said.

Also, Kabiru admitted to buying the victim’s heart at N20,000, saying: “I was not of part of the killing but I bought the victim’s heart. It was delivered through a commercial motorcyclist. I used the heart to attract customers with heart disease.”

Addressing journalists, the state Police Commissioner, Olawale Olokode, said the victim’s mother reported the matter a month after he had gone missing, adding that she initially reported the issue to a herbalist to help locate her missing son.

According to him, the suspects would be arraigned in court after proper investigation.
