Must read

Gbenga Maxwell Ajayi, a 40-year-old man, who was abducted on his way to Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, has regained his freedom because the ritualist said their charm would not work on him.

The father of four was abducted last Friday, on boarding a commercial vehicle from Ijaye area of Lagos.

He regained his freedom the day after his abduction, as his abductors noticed that he could not be useful for ritual purpose.

Narrating his ordeal to Vanguard at his Ijaye residence, Gbenga said he boarded a commercial vehicle whose occupants dozed off having inhaled perfume sprayed by the bus conductor.

The victim, who was seen with bruises on his leg during Vanguard’s visit to his residence, said: “I can’t give details of what transpired while in the bus.

“But what I noticed was that the conductor was waving money to everyone which resulted in us dozing off.

“I initially sent a message to my travel agent that I wanted to order for a taxi, but I later discharged the rider when he opted for an offline transaction as a result of traffic gridlock.

“I, thereafter, joined a public transport heading to Oshodi. Unfortunately we all dozed off after inhaling the perfume.

“When I woke up, I saw myself and other passengers in a very fine apartment. But we all looked dizzy with white stain on our bodies.

“I heard an old man giving order for my release and that of another person, saying none of us could be used for ritual purposes.

“Immediately, the charms placed on our heads were removed. We were blindfolded and driven to an area later identified as Epe.”

 The victim’s brother, Seyi Ajayi, said Gbenga told them that all the passengers were already clothed in black clothes. Then a man placed a calabash on their heads one after the other.

“He said if the charm worked on the person, he or she would be taken away,” Seyi added.

Recall that Gbenga had sent a WhatsApp message to someone, stating that something was being sprayed in the bus he boarded and that passengers were feeling dizzy.

Vanguard learned that he was supposed to travel to London with Ethiopian Airlines whose departure time was by 1:40pm on Friday and to arrive in London 6:35pm on Saturday.

However, he was later declared missing after the person that was supposed to receive him in London said he was not onboard.

Bizarre: Lab Attendant Arrested For Selling Pregnant Women’s Blood To Ritualists

A laboratory assistant has been arrested by the police for selling pregnant women’s blood to ritualists.

According to report, the Ghanaian police arrested the middle-aged laboratory assistant identified as Stephen Enyan who worked at the Abura Dunkwa District Hospital located in the Central Region for allegedly selling the blood of pregnant women.

Reports indicated that the police arrested the laboratory assistant after a tip-off that he had created a business from selling blood belonging to pregnant women to a group of ritualists known as ‘Sakawa Boys’.’

Reports indicated that most of the pregnant women who visited the clinic for ante-natal check-up usually lost their babies or in some other cases, their lives.

The frequency of the loss of babies and mothers caused the hospital management to launch an investigation into the matter.

The hospital management also involved men of the Abura Dunkwa District Police which led to the discovery.

Policemen who chatted with Enyan on WhatsApp reported that he offered to sell the blood of a pregnant woman for GH¢10,000 with GH¢250 as part payment.

The belief in superstition, witchcraft, potency of rituals, especially get-rich-quick had led to a number of bizarre crimes in Africa.

A 57-year-old man, in Nigeria, raped his 7-month-old daughter believing he was going to get rich. The baby died from her injuries. He was arrested and is being charged for her murder. According to the man, he was “told to rape in her a dream“.
