The EFCC said under interrogation by operatives, Adifala admitted to collecting the sums of money from their victim, including N2.9 million, which he claimed was used to buy black, brown and white cows, rams, lavender perfume, rings, among other items, to carry out sacrifices at different times.
The suspect said: “I also linked up on the matter with Ifawole Ajibola, and we continued with the sacrifices together, until we were arrested by EFCC.” Ibrahim, who was the one who had prior contact with the victim, admitted collecting money at different times.
Our own is just to pray and do the necessary sacrifices, which we did, and to leave the rest to God, however, along the line, the zoning for the Reps seat was taken away from Oye-Ekiti to Ikole-Ekiti,” the other suspect said The EFCC said they were arrested along with some of their instruments of trade and will soon be arraigned in court.
