The Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), has arrested one lsmail Saliu, 25, for allegedly conspiring with a herbalist and one other, to slaughter his brother.

 

The NSCDC Command Spokesman in Kwara, Mr Babawale Afolabi, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday, in Ilorin.

 

Afolabi said Saliu conspired with two others, and killed his 14-year-old younger brother, Azeez Saliu, with the intention of using him for money rituals.

 

The Spokesman also said that the incident happened on Sept. 13, in Kosubosu, Baruten Local Government Area (LGA), of Kwara.

 

“On September 13, operatives of the NSCDC in Kosubosu Divisional Office, got a distress call from a neighbourhood about suspicious movement of certain individuals in the area.

 

“Some officers from the divisional office, with operatives of the Anti-Vandal patrol team in the area, swung into action and subsequently arrested a herbalist Ahmed Nkwe 44, lsmail Saliu 25 and Saliu Ahmed 30,” Afolabi said.

 

The spokesman further said that investigations revealed, that the suspects lured the victim to the farm, where he was gruesomely murdered by his own brother, lsmail Saliu.

 

He also said the suspect and his accomplices, were later arrested by operatives of the NSCDC on their way back from the farm.

 

Afolabi said that the prime suspect and brother to the deceased, confessed to have personally slaughtered his brother with the help of the herbalist and one other person.

 

He said that the State Commandant, Ayinla Makinde, was briefed on the incident, and had ordered that the suspects should be handed over to the police, for further investigations and prosecution.
