Sunday Shodipe, one of the three suspects linked with serial killings in Akinyele area of Ibadan said he got N3,000(less than $8) and food for all the six persons he murdered.

No fewer than five persons were raped and murdered in Akinyele Local Government Area of Ibadan in the month of June alone.

The 19-year old suspect, Shodipe was among the 19 suspects paraded on Friday by Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Nwachuckwu Enwonwu, for various offences ranging from robbery, defilement, motorcycle theft, among others.

The suspect said that he was sent on the mission by a 50-year-old herbalist, Adedokun Yinusa who, he claimed, was his master.

“Anytime I’m to go for the killing, Baba will give me some charms and also teach me some incantation to be recited so that nobody will see me at the scene of the crime.

“I will hit the victims with a shovel and recite the incantation immediately I saw blood coming out of the victims’ body.
