A student of Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, has been caught with fetish items while allegedly trying to use his roommate and his mother for a money ritual.
The student, identified as Saheed Adeniran, was said to have been caught by some persons that exposed him in a video obtained by SaharaReporters.
According to the video, the incident occurred in the Ifaki-Ekiti, Ido-Osi Local Government Area of the state.
The items found in possession of Adeniran in the video include clothes, fabric to be tied around the waist, two calabashes (one covered with a lid, the other, a small-sized gourd) and a native pot covered with a lid.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti State Police Command, Sunday Abutu, told newsmen that the incident happened on Friday and that investigation had begun into the matter.
Abutu, however, noted that the suspect (Adeniran) had fled before the report was brought to the police, but that efforts were ongoing to apprehend him.
”The case is still under investigation. The incident happened on Friday, April 30th.
”The suspect is still at large. I don’t know how it happened, but it was when the report came to us that we started working on it.
“They did not report to the police immediately the incident occurred, though, we are still investigating what led to it. It is until we get the suspect that we will know if it is a true story.”
Speaking about the health condition of the alleged victim, Abutu noted: ”I can’t tell if he was used, but in terms of his physical appearance, he is still active.”
