How poverty affects the mind could sometimes be incredible. The featured image of this post is the head of a 10 year old boy murdered by the two suspected young brothers because of N200,000.
The two suspects : Ayodeji Obadimeji, 18 and Saheed Obadimeji,19.They reside at Tunde Balogun Street, Shapati, Ibeju-Lekk.
As a good boy, one who respects his seniors, Joseph Makinde, 10, accepted to buy a bottle of coca- cola for them as they pleaded. Little did he know that such respect will end his life. When he brought the bottle of coca-cola drink to them, they held him and cut of his head with a knife.
According to the Vanguard, the suspects were arrested on 26th June 2020 at about 8.30 am by the police team while on a routine patrol between Ajah/Epe expressway in possession of human head , later identified to be Joseph Makinde’s head, which they concealed in a sack.
The two suspects have confessed that one native doctor simply identified as Sodiq Abefe had contracted them to provide him with human head at the cost of two hundred thousand Naira (N200, 000). They also led the police to an uncompleted building at Shapati where they hid the remaining parts of the body.
While the Lagos State Commissioner of Police has directed that the case be handed over to the Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation And Intelligence Department (SCIID) for further investigation, efforts are in place by the police to arrest the native doctor: Sodiq Abefe.
The young need to be protected more. Tell them more about the ills of the society and the need for them to be careful and vigilant both inside and outside the home.
