Herbalist and client die during money ritual sacrifice

A 60 -year - old herbalist , Kareemu Okeyode and
his 51 -year -old client , Oladele Bakare , were
confirmed dead on Wednesday , September 7,
during a money ritual sacrifice.

The Nation reports that Okeyode entered his
“ sacred room ” with Bakare in the morning
after he had prepared many fetish objects ,
including an incense powder , for the said
ritual. But the attention of the neighbours was
drawn to them after they stopped hearing their
incantations in the ‘ sacred room’ for a long
When they knocked on the door in the
afternoon , no one answered . This made them
force the door open and the dead bodies of
the two men were seen on the floor . They
alerted the police about the discovery.
The acting police spokesman Abimbola
Oyeyemi said that the two men were pulled
out of the room unclad. Oyeyemi said the two
men locked themselves up in the “ sacred
room” during the ritual and that “ it was very
likely that they died of suffocation in the room
suffused with the smoke of burning incense” .
