Killings In Akinyele Ritualistic, Not Rape — Council Boss Cries Out

The caretaker chairman of Akinyele South LCDA, Hon. Kazeem Bolarinwa has alleged that the recent killings of three females at Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State are for ritualistic purposes.

The caretaker chairman revealed this while speaking with newsmen on Saturday night. He also stated that the latest victim, Grace Oshiagwu, was butchered on the head in four different spots.

Narrating how the incident occurred, Bolarinwa said, “I went to a particular hospital to see a patient, I made a phone call to the Divisional Police Officer on the issue of security in my Council. The DPO asked me to come to where he was that another sad event had taken place at Idi Ori, Express, behind a newly constructed filling station called Silverstone. I left the hospital immediately, when I got there, I saw a crowd.

“Getting to the scene of the incident, I was told a 21-year-old lady called Grace has been murdered.

“She was butchered on the head in four places, it appears to me the incident was not a rape but ritual murder.

“I say this because the perpetrators of this dastardly act were using rape to disguise and distract people’s attention from their ritual activities.

“After the lady had died, her underwear was removed halfway. I decided to go round at least some houses in the area, the area was not close to a bush and I challenged the residents why they couldn’t raise alarm when they noticed that a stranger had cone to their area. He came, perpetrated his heinous crime, and left without being noticed.”

OyoAffairs recalls that the latest killing of Grace Oshiagwu is the third of its kind within two weeks in the Akinyele area.
