A chief priest and father have many questions to answer after a woman reportedly died at their shrine while being delivered of witchcraft.
Men of the Ogun State Police Command on Sunday 19th August, 2018, arrested one Lekan Olukolu, an Ayelala priest after a 25-year old woman, one Idowu Ogunkoya died at his shrine while allegedly being delivered of witchcraft.
It was gathered that the arrest of the priest was as a result of complaint lodged by one Lucky Oghenetega, who reported at Ago-Iwoye Divisional Headquarters that the deceased who was his fiancé was taken to the shrine of Ayelala priest by her parents for spiritual cleansing as they suspected her to have possessed witchcraft spirit.
According to a report by PM Express, when the deceased got to the shrine, the priest shaved her hair and gave her a liquid substance to drink in order to be delivered her from the alleged witchcraft. The deceased slumped and died immediately after taking the liquid substance.
On the strength of the report, the DPO Ago-Iwoye Division, CSP Adeola Adedoyin, led detectives to the shrine situated at Ojuolota area of Ijesha Road in Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, where the priest was promptly arrested alongside with the father of the deceased one Temitayo Ogunkoya.
Meanwhile, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation, and Intelligence Department for proper investigation.
The police boss also warned members of the public to desist from primitive and barbaric ways of dealing with matters, especially issues that had to do with human life as the Command will not tolerate such archaic lifestyle, capable of terminating innocent peoples’ lives unnecessarily.
The prime suspect had already been transferred to the Homicide Department where he was been subjected to interrogations over the death as confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi.
It was gathered that the suspect might have embarked on torturing and administering of the concoction that might have caused her death which the police were said to be trying to unravel.
