Amos Olaleye, a 29-year-old internet fraudster who was caught in Lagos State, told the police how he and his mother worked together to use his sister in a money-making routine.
The suspect was stopped and searched on Itamaga-Ikorodu road while he was on his way to throw his sister’s body into a river, according to the police.
The suspect, who is being held at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) on Panti Street in Yaba, also said that he had sexual relations with his sister, who has since died.
In his confession to the police, the suspect said he was told to throw the body into a river after her vital parts were taken out.
He said that his mother told him to kill his younger sister so that he could get rich, based on what an Indian doctor told her.
“My mother was the one who took me to a native doctor. While with the native doctor, he said I would have to sacrifice one of my siblings if I wanted to be successful. He said the one to be sacrificed must be the one I loved most,” the suspect narrated.
“I am into Yahoo business. After hearing from him, it took me months before I could make up my mind if I actually wanted to embark on the assignment.
“While I was grappling with the thought, my mother kept encouraging me to kill my sister so that we could be rich and bring to an end the poverty in the family.
“My mother planned the entire incident by going out to buy poison which she put in my sister’s food. The native doctor also instructed that I must sleep with my sister’s corpse and suck her vagina before throwing the corpse into a river for the ritual to be completed.”
