A 20-year-old boy, Ridwan Adewale, has confessed to killing his father for money rituals in Oyo.
In the confessional video seen by Newsbreak Nigeria, Adewale, speaking in Yoruba Language, said he decided to use his father for rituals because he was poor and wanted to be rich.
Answering questions, he said, “My name is Ridwan Adewale, I am from Ibadan, Iyana Church area of the state. I conceived the idea because I was struggling to survive. So, I decided to kill him. I am 20 years old and I killed him with a rope and knife.
“I used to knife to cut off his private part and took it to the herbalist who said I should come back for the concotion. I went back and he gave me a soap to bath every 1 a.m.
“After using the soap, I started seeing some signs. I felt money was dropped to certain places but I haven’t located those places. The herbalist said I will soon find out the places the money dropped.
“My condition changed a bit because I started making money like N50,000 and N100,000 but I spent that with friends and siblings. Now, I am broke.”
He appealed to the youths to shun such acts.
