After smoking Indian Hemp, spirit directed me to kill – Suspect

One Abdulafeez Shorinmade, 23, has confessed that some spirit ordered him to kill 18 year old girl, Rofiyah Rasaki.

The suspected killer was apprehended after stabbing the girl on the neck, and the victim bled to death on Monday, October 10, in Iwo at about 9:30pm.

The suspect later proceeded to Soba compound in the same town and repeated similar criminal offence by stabbing one 18 year old Sawiyu Nasrah, on the chin before he was arrested while trying to be an escapee.

While addressing newsmen during criminal parade at the police command headquarters in Osogbo, Osun state, the suspect, who disclosed his identity as a barbing apprentice in the town, revealed that he was directed by some spirit to carry out the criminal acts.

The suspect said; “I am under the influence of some spirit. After smoking Indian hemp, I do hear a voice commanding me to do some evil things.

“On the said day, I smoked Indian hemp and while I was returning from mosque the spirit overtook me. At that moment I was walking behind the girl and I stabbed her with a scissors I picked on the road. I didn’t know she later died.

“After stabbing her, the spirit told me to run away and I did. Few minutes later I saw another girl and the spirit urged me to stab her and I did. While I was running away, the spirit also told me to stop and I was caught by residents around the community”.

The suspect, however, said since he was apprehended, the spirit has not spoken to him.

Meanwhile, the Police spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola while confirming the incident to newsmen revealed that the suspect will be dragged before the court after necessary investigation has been concluded.
