A herbalist, simply identified as Jelili also known as Ifa (oracle) and a commercial driver, Elijah Oyebode have both been arrested by the Department of State Service (DSS), Osun State Command, for reportedly kidnapping and killing a 400 level student of Osun State University, Adebisi Rofiat Damilola.
The driver has confessed how the herbalist gave him the dirty job to bring a young lady for him and get N10,000 (ten thousand) as reward.
It would be recalled that Adebisi who left Ipetu-Ijesa for Osogbo on December 22nd, 2016 got missing along the way and her corpse was later found on the roadside along Ikirun/Iragbiji road few days later.
“After dropping other passengers at the various destinations, I took the lady to Ifa at his house in Ikirun and he received her and gave me N10,000. I pity the lady when I was leaving because I knew she would not come out alive. My conscience was telling me that what I did was bad.”
“When I left Ifa’s house, I went to a bush to dump the lady’s luggage which contained some clothes. Few minutes later, her phone started ringing. I knew her people must be looking for her. I took the phone to Yusuff to help me sell it. I told Yusuff that a passenger forgot the phone in my vehicle”.
“The phone kept ringing and I later picked it. Yusuff told me that it was dangerous to receive the call because they could use it to trace us. I removed the SIM card and threw it away instantly to prevent her people from reaching us. We sold the phone for N20,000. We shared it N10,000 each”.
But a top DSS official said there was incriminatory evidence against the herbalist, saying that Ifa was not saying the truth.
