The State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, who paraded 12 suspects, including the two other suspected killers at the command’s headquarters, Eleweran Abeokuta, on Tuesday said the men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, received information about their activities and swooped on them on November 7.

Iliyasu said Odubela, who is the leader of the gang connived with Lawal by strangling Amudat to death, after which he sold her head and hands to ritualists.

Odubela told newsmen: “It is true that Lekan Lawal and I connived to kill my step-daughter. The girl was 16 years old. She was always stealing her mother’s money. And the mother said we should kill her as a sacrifice for the other children she had.

“Since she normally slept at the door post outside, at 12 midnight, I invited Lekan Lawal. He held the girl by the neck and strangled her while I held her legs. That was how she died.”

However, Odubela’s wife, Fausat, who was in tears, told newsmen she had five children in her first marriage before she remarried Odubela, but denied asking her husband to kill her daughter.

She said though she was not happy with the character of her late daughter, she could not have asked her husband to help her kill the troublesome girl.

The suspects will be charged to court after investigation, Police say.
