The suspect in his desperation to get rich by all means offered three members of his families, including his father, brother and sister. 

In addition to his family members, he further downloaded five pictures of his Facebook friends, printed the pictures and offered them for the alleged ritual purposes.

Preliminary investigation further revealed that suspect obtained the sum of One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100,000) from his father under false pretence that he will set up a business, unknown to the father that the money will be used to settle the “native doctor” for alleged money ritual of which the father himself is a victim.

Exhibits recovered include;
