The father of the four-year-old, who was murdered in Ijanikin area of Lagos said his son’s killer was paid N100. “The boy who killed my son was paid just N100 to collect his kidney, intestine and penis for ritual purpose”, the unnamed father stated.
“The murder of my little boy was a shock to me.
“I took my wife to the hospital on Saturday after she went into labour.
“I returned from the hospital and spent the night with the three of them (the victim and his siblings).
“In the morning, which was Sunday, I went back to the hospital.
“I left my kids in the care of my neighbours.
“It was after I returned from the hospital that the deed was discovered when I started searching frantically for my son.”
The victim’s father said the police had promised him justice would be done.
The killer, Tajudeen Azeez, 16, was said to have lured the kid, Ibrahim Jamiu, to a school located in the area before slaughtering and cutting out his intestines and kidney. Azeez was trying to bury Jamiu’s decapitated body when a resident sighted him.
Upon his arrest and interrogation by the police, Azeez said he was contracted to get the body parts.
A resident sighted him and raised the alarm.
