The murderers of First Class 300 Level undergraduate of Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, have confessed on how they committed the act.
The statements of the 4-man gang were made at the Delta State Police Command.
According to them, Elozino Joshualia Ogege was killed with the help of a security guard, Onos who said, “I was contacted by Desmond and another to provide a female student for Yahoo rituals. We had planned it, and when Elozino approached me that she was looking for accommodation, I saw it as a good opportunity”.
“I contacted Desmond who told me to tell her to come back the next day. So the next day, they brought a Corola car; and when Elozino came, they used something on her face which made her unconscious. We took her to a bush where we first plucked out one of her eyes while she was still alive. She was even crying and begging us to forgive her and let her go, but we plucked the other eye, removed her breast and heart before she died”.
Onos also implicated his supervisor who denied knowledge of the crime. He stated that he was among those that chased and caught Onos when the police came after him in the school.
” When all these were happening, Onos threatened to implicate me for assisting the police to catch him. When the police caught him, they discovered two phones with him, which he claimed I sold one to him. That was my involvement “, the supervisor claimed.
One of the conspirators, Desmond said Elozino’s murder made it the fifth life he has taken for ritual purposes. He said the first four female victims were adopted at Oghara and killed for the rituals.
According to him, ” Each time we killed, we removed the vital organs like the eyes, the heart and the breast of the victims, normally females, and take to the Baba (herbalist), who usually would ask us to come back”.
“Baba used to burn the heart and pound it to make powder substance out of it. It is the powder that he gives us, which we apply before speaking to our victims to make money from them. Any big woman we approach obliges us and provides money for us”, Desmond revealed.
