4 in court over ‘killing’ colleague for ritual




A Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, yesterday, ordered four men to be remanded in Ikoyi Prisons for allegedly killing their colleague and removing his heart for ritual.
They accused: Daniel Luka, 24; Audu Isaiah, 24; Wavi David, 20; and Ayuba Musa, 24; are standing trial on a twocount charge of conspiracy and murder.
The Prosecutor, Sergeant Modupe Olaluwoye, told the court that the men committed the offences on May 22, 2018, at Alasia along Oke-Ira Road in Ajah, near Lagos.
Olaluwoye alleged that the accused had been patronising a ritualists, who had asked them for a human heart in exchange for wealth.
She said that the accused had lured their 21-year-old brother, James Isaiah, into the bush, where they killed him with a knife and cut off his heart.
“The police were able to trace them to their house where they had admitted killing their brother for ritual purposes.
The ritualist is however, still at large,” the prosecutor said.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Magistrate Oluwatoyin Oghere, thereafter, ordered that they should be remanded and the case file should be sent to the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.
She adjourned the case till August 15.
