Lagos State police have arrested a 29-year-old ‘notorious’ Yahoo boy for killing his sister for money ritual.
The arrest of the 29- year- old boy, simply identified as Amos Olalere, followed his confession to killing his younger sister with help of his mother for money ritual purposes.
According to a report, the suspect was apprehended by detectives of the Lagos State Police Command during a stop-and-search operation carried out along Itamaga, Ikorodu Road, in Lagos State.
During interrogations the suspect confessed that his mother asked him to kill his younger sister after a herbalist told them that he had to sacrifice one life which must be a sibling to him for ritual so he can succeed in his yahoo business.
The young boy confessed, “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 my sister which I love so much.”
He added, “After hearing from the herbalist, it took me months before I could carry out the act while my mother was also encouraging me to kill my sister so they can be rich.”
He stated further, “My mother planned the entire incident, by going out to buy a poison which she will put in my sister’ s food.
Olelere revealed that the herbalist also instructed him to sleep with the dead body of his sister and then throw her into the river for the ritual procedures to be completed.
They connived together and carried out the act but were arrested along Ikorodu road on their way to dispose of the deceased’s body.
