Sofiat: Suspected Ritual Killers Still In Custody, Hale And Hearty – Ogun Correctional Centre


The arrested suspects

The Nigerian Correctional Service, Ogun State Command, has denied reports that one of the suspected killers of Sofiat Okeowo had lost his life in custody.

Okeowo was killed and beheaded in Abeokuta earlier this year by some teenage boys, one of whom was her boyfriend.

The boys were burning the victim’s head for money ritual when they were caught by a local security guard in Oke Aregba area of Abeokuta.

The boys have since been arraigned and detained in custody pending the determination of their case.
