A 25-yrar-old man is now in the net of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, for allegedly killing his brother for ritual purposes in Kwara.

Operatives of the Kwara State Command arrested the suspect, Ismail Saliu, for allegedly conniving with a herbalist and one other person to kill his 14-year-old brother, Azeez Saliu, with the intention to use him for money ritual.

The NSCDC spokesman, Babawale Afolabi, in a statement, in Ilorin stated that the incident happened on Friday in the Kosubosu area of the Baruten Local Government Area of the state.

“On Friday 13/09/2021, operatives of the NSCDC in Kosubosu divisional office got a distressed call from a neighbourhood about suspicious movement of certain individuals in their area. Some officers in the divisional office with operatives of the Anti-Vandal patrol team in the area swung into action and subsequently arrested a herbalist Ahmed Nkwe, 44, lsmaila Saliu 25, and Saliu Ahmed, 30.”

The suspects reportedly lured the victim to a farm where he was alleged “gruesomely murdered by his own blood brother, Ismail Saliu.

“Luck later ran out of the suspects, as they were rounded up by the operatives of the NSCDC on their way back from the farm.

“The prime suspect, who is a brother to the deceased, has confessed to having personally beheaded his brother with the help of the herbalist and one other person.”
