“After she woke up much later in the day, Olaniyi told her to follow Akanbi and Adeleye to the stream to wash her hair on the pretext of helping her spiritually.
“While she was washing her hair, Adeleye pushed her head inside the water, brought out a pocket knife and killed her. Both of them carried her body from the water to the ground. They cut her body into pieces as directed by Olaniyi.”

In his confession, Oluwafemi, a self-proclaimed pastor, said he bought the body part for N5,000 to perform miracles.
“The alfas I know said they also bought the flesh N5,000 and used it to prepare concoctions for their customers,” he added.
