We Got Instructions From Facebook, Says Teenagers Who K!lled Friend’s Lover In Ogun


The four teenage boys arrested for dismembering Sofiat Kehinde and burning her head for money r!tuals have said they got the guidelines on popular social media platform, Facebook.

The boys—Wariz Oladeinde, Abdulgafar Lukman, Mustakeem Balogun and Soliu Majekodunmi, the boyfriend of the slain girl — were caught at Oke Aregba area of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Saturday, after they had beheaded Sofiat and put her head in a local pot for burning.

Parading the suspects on Monday at the State Police Command Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, Sofiat’s boyfriend, Soliu, confessed that when the victim visited him on Friday, he strangled her and cut off her head immediately with the aid of his accomplices.

According to him, Mustekeem, who used to attend the same Islamic society (Asalatu) with Sofiat, was the arrow head of the heinous act, saying he was the one who brought the guidelines from Facebook and pestered the group of friends to carryout the act so as to instantaneously become rich.

Soliu said: “Last year December, Mustakeem gave me her number that I should be dating her. The first time Sofiat came to my house, I informed Mustakeem that she was around and that she had agreed to my proposal for a relationship.

“The second time Sofiat came, I told him, but he told me that she is not a good girl and advised that we should use her for money rituals.

“He said he saw a guideline for ‘Osole’ (money ritual) on Facebook and he had a screenshot of it.

“Since then, he had been disturbing me that we should use Sofiat for money r!tual, but I didn’t agree with him. In fact, on many occasions, I lied to Sofiat that I am not at home just to dissuade her from coming.

“So, eventually, Sofiat came to my house on Friday. I was inside my room with her while Mustakeem was outside.

“Later Mustakeem told me that we should go ahead and use her since all other needed items for the rituals are ready. I have regrets. If I knew it would end up like this I would not have gotten myself involved in the act.”
