Nigeria police arrest cleric, recover decomposing body of missing university student


Police in Osun State on Tuesday paraded a cleric, Sakariyau Abdulrofiu, and his suspected accomplices, Ibrahim Ayuba and Yusuf Aliu, over the death of a 400-level student of the Osun State University, Oluwafemi Shonibare, who was declared missing earlier in June.

After his arrest, Mr. Abdulrofiu led the police to a spot near his house where the body of the student was dumped.

The body of Shonibare was already decomposing when it was retrieved by the police.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt the suspects planned to use the deceased, who was a final year student of the department of microbiology,  for money ritual before they were apprehended.

The Commissioner of Police in charge of Osun State, Fimihan Adeoye, confirmed the development.

He told  PREMIUM TIMES on the phone that the police had enough evidence to successfully prosecute the suspects in court.

He also said the suspects had owned up to the crime and would soon be arraigned in court.

“I can assure you that they will be soon be arraigned in court and that means we have enough evidence to prosecute them,” Mr. Adeoye said.

    Judas Iscariot children, there is no evil that you have not introduced into Nigeria.
    Yet you should be the one to always accuse others and profile their tribe.
    May God Almighty redeem you guys from satanic inventions.

        All those vices had its origin from the Judas Iscariot children, the inventers of gbemo gbemo,armed robbery (oyenusi), drug peddling (ogedengbe),ritual (ijebu),fake product (oluwole).we are not going anywhere until you give us our land of the risen sun,the hope of Africa and black race.until osibanjo give us Biafra.

        Why do you hate the truth?

    • Lukman Asifat

      It is amazing that virtually all of you from South East lack proper reasoning when the issues of human dignity are concerned and I pity your mind set.If sanity prevails in your villages in the East,you should go and stay there and enjoy the fruits of your non exposure.

    The man is not cleric, he is just a BABALAWO

    • KBE

      He is an ISLAMIC CLERIC so stop the denial.

  • Mare

    No, no, no Yoruba people should stop all these killings, work to get money and stop rituals. Just imagine these stupids terminated the life of this innocent son of a parent who was a final year student because of money. Curse upon you all ritualist.

  • KBE

    What about the headline? It should have read Islamic cleric. It is easy to call every one Pastor but it’s very difficult to call immams and alfas ISLAMIC CLERIC.

  • Love Paradise Homes

    If it is a pastor the headline will read a pastor used university student for ritual. Why cant they mention islamic cleric or alpha here. Why covering the identity of the cleric, may God punish any premium times editor that will ever publish scandals against any pastor from today henceforth. What rubish. Why hide the islamic cleric identity

    Yoruba preacher = charms
    Yoruba preacher = juju

  • George

    Two days ago I asked a very simple question as follow;

    1., Tinubu boy alas Badoo
    2., Orju Kanu boys alas Evans
    3., Buhari associate alas boko haram

    God forbid anyway but which one would you prefer you have an encounter with.

    Be frank pls.

    • Aminu Hammanyero

      None of the above but really in all sincerity is there any indisputable evidence that links these people to the terrorist group. I have heard some leveling similar accusation in the past, but I later learned that it was all false it was more to do with bigotry and hate If it’s true Nigeria needs to prosecute them or the international court will do so in the future.

      Have a lovely day!
