The suspects are in detention at the Osun State Command of Department of State Service (DSS) where they made the confession to DSS officers following their arrest.

Oyebode while they were being paraded before newsmen said Ifa contracted him to bring a young lady who had never given birth and get N10,000 as reward.
Rofiat, a final year student of UniOsun unfortunately happened to be their victim.

On December 22, 2016, she boarded the vehicle Oyebode used for commercial while leaving Ipetu-Ijesa for Osogbo, and ended up getting killed for ritual.
Speaking in Yoruba to newsmen on Rofiat’s killing, Oyebode said, “I took her from Ipetu-Ijesa and there were other passengers in my vehicle that day.
“She matched the specification that Ifa gave me.

“Ifa had given me a charm that I will use to hypnotise her and once I put the charm in my pocket, I only need to have body contact with the lady and she would be hypnotised.

“The charm was already in my pocket and when I saw the lady, I ensured that my body touched her. From there, she didn’t know anything again.

“After dropping other passengers at the various destinations, I took the lady to Ifa at his house in Ikirun and he received her and gave me N10,000. I pity the lady when I was leaving because I knew she would not come out alive.

“My conscience was telling me that, what I did was bad and immediately I left Ifa’s house, I went to a bush to dump the lady’s luggage which contained some clothes.

“A few minutes later, her phone started ringing. I knew her people must be looking for her. I took the phone to one Yusuff to help me sell it. I told Yusuff that a passenger forgot the phone in my vehicle.

“The phone kept ringing and I later picked it. Yusuff told me that it was dangerous to receive the call because they could use it to trace us.

“I removed the SIM card and threw it away instantly to prevent her people from reaching us.

“We sold the phone for N20,000. We shared it N10,000 each.”
