However, one of the Yahoo Plus conspirators, Desmond who appeared remorseful, affirmed that the Elozino’s murder made it the fifth life he has taken for ritual purposes. He said the first four female victims were adopted at Oghara and killed for the rituals, adding that Elozino’s murder was his first from the University community in Abraka.

“Each time we killed, we removed the vital organs like the eyes, the heart and the B.reast of the victims, normally females, and take to the Baba (herbalist), who usually would ask us to come back”.
“Baba used to burn the heart and pound it to make powder substance out of it. It is the powder that he gives us, which we apply before speaking to our victims to make money from them. Any big woman we approach obliges us and provides money for us”, Desmond revealed.
For the native doctor who appeared hardened and unrepentant, identified as Robinson, he kept calling on God as a witness that he was speaking the truth. He said Elozino’s heart and eye happened to be the first he received from the Yahoo Plus customers.
He said he first met the boys seven years ago when they brought an accident victim for him to cure, maintaining that he specializes in treating bone fractures, making women pregnant, preparing love portions for people, curing appendicitis and others.
He said when they came with Elozino’s body parts, they gave him N10,000, promising to give him more money later, and asked him to make them rich.
The Baba (herbalist), posited that they later brought N130,000 more to him and that was when he discovered they had mighty buildings. He said he only prayed for them to succeed in what they do.
He, however, could not state categorically what he used those body parts for, whether he used to burn them or pound them in the mortal that was brought as evidence to the Police Headquarters.
The second Yahoo Plus member was alleged to have slumped and died when the police was close to catching him. The minor female relative who was used to make a call relating to their illicit operation was arrested and still with the police.
Addressing the journalists, the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka maintained that, now that all the killers of Elozino had been caught except the one that slumped and died, the police would now arraign them in court to face the consequences of their action.
He stressed that nobody should blame hardship to take up arms against fellow humans, adding that in most sane climes, hardships even bond people together.
The Command’s Spokesperson posited that it is an issue of value orientation; thereby calling on families, churches and other faith based organizations to rise up against this menace of ritual killings plaguing our society.
Aniamaka reassured the public that the Command was ready to face headlong any security challenge ahead of the Christmas season.
He said the operations order for the Ember months had since been dropped, arguing that all the police crack teams like the Dragons, Eagle Net, Squadrons, Safer Highways, SARS and others had been on red alert to effectively curtail crimes and criminality within this period.”
