Four brothers allegedly kill their grandmother for money ritual in Edo
Four brothers have been accused of killing their grandmother, Grace Ovbiedo, for money ritual in Edo State.
The sad incident reportedly occurred on December 12, 2017 at Ikpoba-Okha local government area of the state.
The suspects who are identified as Dickson Oluka, Salaya Oluka, Martins Oluka and Austin Enayi are said to be internet fraudsters (yahoo boys) who desperately want to become rich at all cost.
According to reports, the four brothers had consulted a native doctor on how they would become rich after which the latter instructed them to tie a live tortoise to their back and kill someone very close to them to achieve their aim.
The suspects on getting home, strapped a tortoise to their back and smashed their grandmother’s head against a wall.
Two of them, Dickson and Salaya, were reportedly caught and arrested while attempting to dispose the body of the deceased while the other two are still at large.
Edo Police spokesman, DSP Chidi Nwanbuzor, who confirmed the incident, said a manhunt has been launched for the other two suspects.
