Edo Police Arrest Four Brothers Who Killed Their Grandmother For Money Ritual
Four brothers suspected to be internet fraudsters have reportedly killed their grandmother, Grace Ovbiedo, for money ritual.
Two of the brothers have been arrested by the Edo State police command while two are declared wanted.
The incident occurred on December 12, 2017 at No. 28 Asowata Street, Ohovbe quarters, Ikpoba-Okha local government area of the state.
The suspects identified as Dickson Oluka, Salaya Oluka, Martins Oluka and Austin Enayi were said to have committed the act after consulting a native doctor who told them to stripe a live tortoise to their back and kill someone close to them before they become rich.
It was gathered that they tied the tortoise to their back as instructed by a native doctor, killed their grandmother and were caught while attempting to dispose the body of the deceased.
The Edo Police spokesman, DSP Chidi Nwanbuzor, who confirmed the incident, said Dickson and Salaya have been arrested by the police and a manhunt has been launched for the other two suspects.
A live tortoise used for the purpose is said to be in custody of the police.
