Detectives from the Ondo State Police Command are on the trail of suspected ritualists who killed a 60-year-old woman with a hunchback, The Nation reports.

The police are also on the trail of the woman’s son, who colluded with the kidnappers after being paid N7 million.

The woman, identified as Rukayat Abodunde, was abducted by two gunmen who came to her home on Ayetoro Street in Ondo town, pretending to have come to buy fish from her, according to The Nation.

The abduction happened around 10pm, the paper said, without indicating the actual date of the incident.

The report said the suspected kidnappers reappeared few days after the abduction of the woman to demand refund of N7 million from his son after they discovered that the hunchback was not natural, but caused by an accident.

The woman appeared to have been killed and the son is also on the run.

Police spokesman, Femi Joseph, a Superintendent of Police, confirmed the incident.

Joseph added the two suspected kidnappers invaded the home of the victim and whisked her away.

According to him, the incident was reported at the police station by one Omotola Oseyemi and detectives swung into action to ensure the release of the abducted woman.

Joseph said they interrogated the people in the area but members of the family were not showing enough interest in the disappearance of the woman.

The police spokesman said the case was still being investigated to unravel those behind the dastardly act.

In February 2017, the police in Edo State arrested four suspected ritualists over the murder of a 62-year-old man, with hunchback, in Urue village, Owan East Local Government Area of Edo State.

The police said the suspects hacked off the man’s hunchback for ritual after killing him.

They put the hunchback into a jerry can of honey for onward delivery to a native doctor in Ifon, Ondo State.

The victim was identified as Oluma.

The police gave the names of the suspects as Ajuma Sunday, 36; Peter Olotu, 38; Sunday Okoro, 62; and a native doctor Philip Ogeneka, 50.

The arrested suspects committed the act on January 29, 2017.

Blackmailer On The Trail of Seyi Tinubu, Demands For N7million

Activities of some unscrupulous element who are of the opinion that they can make quick money through blackmail were brought to fore recently when one unidentified individual called up the number of the Executive Chairman of Loatsad Promo media, Mr. Seyi Tinubu and demanded a whopping N7million so they will not soil his name on the social media.

The blackmailer, according to sources close to the hardworking philanthropist had placed a call through to the energetic young entrepreneur and claimed he is in possession of a video of him fighting a club manager in Lekki during the COVID-19 ordered lockdown and that he will be taking such to the social media except he’s paid to keep quiet.

Though Seyi who is sure he was never in such a situation had called his bluff and asked him to go ahead, his friends and close associates are of the belief that the activities of such individual should be made known to the public in other for such false and malicious plan not to soil the good-standing his company and his family are enjoying on the heart of Nigerians.

The blackmailer we gathered hid the number with which he’s making the call and claimed he’s a journalist but failed to name the medium he’s working with, an act which is against rules of the journalism profession thereby showing clearly he’s a criminal trying to give the noble pen-pushing profession a bad name.

It was not too long that a young man now in the net of the police has resorted to blackmail to extort money from legendary Nigerian female musician Salawa Abeni before he was exposed and is currently facing the tune of the music.

BREAKING: Churches, Mosques Remain Shut In Lagos, Says Commissioner

The Lagos State Government on Tuesday said that churches and mosques in the state might not be reopened soon for worshippers.

The Commissioner for Home Affairs, Prince Anofiu Elegushi, said this on the sideline of the 2020 Ministerial Press Briefing commemorating the first year in office of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The Federal Government had on Monday, June 1, lifted the ban on mosques and churches in the country, based on guidelines and protocols agreed with state governments.

Elegushi said that the reopening of the worship centers was not possible soon, as the state was the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.

”Even before the pronouncement by the Federal Government, we have been having meetings with the religious leaders, we even had one with Safety Commission, looking at the possibility of reopening of religious houses.

”We also had one with the leaders of the two faiths and I want to tell you categorically that at that meeting, the possibility of reopening religious houses was ruled out totally.

”They claimed that they cannot take such responsibility of ensuring that only 20 or 50 people are praying behind them.

”Like an Imam said, he doesn’t know what is going on at the back immediately he is leading a prayer. He said if more than 20 or 50 people are staying at his back he is not going to take responsibility for their presence.

”So, in the meeting, we ruled out in totality the issue of reopening the religious houses until we have a clear coast for us to do so.

”The Federal Government mentioned it, but it never ruled out the state in achieving that pronouncement, so all states will have to look at the possibility of doing so in their respective states.

”We all know Lagos is still having more figures. So definitely that will speak to our decision,” he said.

The commissioner, however, said that the governor of the state would come out with further directives on the matter.
