According to Olokode, the son of the victim of the ritualists reported on March 28, 2022, that on March 8, 2022, his mother one Aishat Yekeen, aged 53 years was missing and all efforts to trace her proved abortive.

"A team of police detectives immediately swung into action by visiting the house of the victim at Ile Ogbo in Ayedire Local government and gathered some reasonable information available, the command said.

"Detectives worked on the piece of information and extended their investigation activities to Lalupon in Oyo state where the first suspect one Muideen Tunji Nafiu ‘m’ was arrested on the 5th of April 2022.

"Nafiu was said to have confessed to have conspired with one Yusuf Muslim ’m’ and killed the woman for ritual in his house at Ile Ogbo.

"He stated that they removed the deceased’s head, hands, legs and heart before they buried the remaining part in the nearby bush at Ile Ogbo.

"Consequently, Yusuf Muslim was arrested in his house at Agoro road, Iwo town while one Rabiu Fatai alias Orela the receiver of the body parts was also arrested, " Olokode stated.

The remains of the deceased has been exhumed and an autopsy has been conducted on her by a government pathologist.
