Shocking! Four brothers allegedly kill sibling, removes his heart
Four men have been ordered to be remanded in Ikoyi Prisons by a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Monday, over the alleged killing and removing their brother’s heart for ritual.
According to the Prosecutor, Sgt. Modupe Olaluwoye, the men, Daniel Luka, 24, Audu Isaiah, 24, Wavi David, 20 and Ayuba Musa, 24 committed the offences on May 22 at Alasia along Oke-Ira road in Ajah, Lagos.
Olaluwoye stated that the accused had been patronising a ritualist, who asked them to provide a human heart in exchange for wealth.
She said that the accused had lured their 21-year-old brother, James Isaiah, into the bush, where they killed him with a knife and cut off his heart.
“The police were able to trace them to their house where they had admitted killing their brother for ritual purposes.
“The ritualist is, however, still at large,” Olaluwoye said.
The prosecutor said that the offences contravened Sections 223, 233 and 165 (a) (b) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
They are standing trial on a two-count charge of conspiracy and murder.
However, the accused pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Magistrate Oluwatoyin Oghere ordered that the case file should be sent to the Lagos State director of public prosecutions for advice.
She, however, adjourned the case until August 15.
