Man Kills Cousin And Childhood Friend, Sells Their Body Parts

A middle-aged man named Dolapo Daniel Babalola has been taken into custody by members of the Ondo State Police Command for the murder of his boyhood friend Opeyemi Oyelakin and the theft of his motorbike.

The police claim that Babalola sold the motorbike in Ibadan and then dismembered Opeyemi’s body part, selling it to ritualists in the capital city of Oyo state.

In addition, the suspect admitted to killing his cousin and three other persons, although he claimed he was unable to verify whether or not each victim perished after being struck with sticks or stones and having their motorcycles taken.

According to police investigations, Babalola also operated in Kabba, Kogi, where in April 2023 he killed a victim in Ife along the Ilesha road in Osun state and an Okada rider.

‘’In June 2023, he killed another motorcyclist at Ondo town and dumped the corpse at a farm at Oboto bush along Bolorunduro road, Ondo town while in October 2023 the suspect and one Sikiru Mutiu aka S.K killed his childhood friend, dismembered his body and handed them to herbalists identified as Mujeeb Lawal and Shina Ojo for rituals.

“The duo of Abiola Olatunji Toheeb and Ayegbajeje Micheal who are receivers of stolen items and one Oyediran Waheed Olaitan who helps in the production of fake documents to aid the selling of the stolen motorcycles have been arrested,” the statement read.

Babalola on his part, said; “Seven motorcycles have been retrieved from the receivers while one suspect is still at large. I have killed five persons including my cousin and my friend, and snatched their motorcycles. I killed Opeyemi who is my friend, and sold the motorcycle to one man in Ibadan called Toheed. I do not sell human parts but I took part of one of my victims’ bodies to an herbalist in Ondo who promised to give me an Ifa Oracle. At the point where we snatched motorcycles, anyone who struggled with me in the process got hit on the head with a fat stone and a stick. The herbalists said they used the body parts to prepare spiritual soap.”

After taking N110,000 from his victim, Adetokunbo Adesina—who claimed to have been recruited to kill over 500 people—was also apprehended by the police. Adetokunbo stated that he was recruited to kill the victim by her three employees, according to the police inquiry.

“Out of fear, the victim sent the sum of ₦110,000 to the account forwarded to her. Through Technical assistance, he was arrested. But the suspect claimed he was sick and needed money to carry out a surgical operation and decided to use the threat as a means to extort the victim because she refused to employ him in her pure water factory.”

According to Peter Abayomi, the Commissioner of Police in Ondo, Abdullahi Fatai, 30, was also taken into custody on suspicion of killing his wife.

He said: “Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect and his wife Olayode Morenike (late) had always quarrelled over the issue of going to check on her child in her former marriage. The suspects after killing the deceased took pictures of the body and locked the corpse in the house till late night before raising an alarm.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
