How I killed, drained teenager’s blood for money ritual – Suspect

Muyideen Salaam, a 35 year-old apprentice at
Aketegbo community in Seme, Badagry area of
Lagos, gave this chilling confession of how he killed
a 13 year-old boy, Rilwan Amuda, in his crave for

The Ibadan-born suspect claimed he was tempted
to opt for money ritual after his wife left with their
two children when feeding became an uphill task for

According to him: “ I was alone in the video shop
club owned by my master when one of my friends
named Nuru came and said he knew someone who
could make us rich . He told me all that was needed
was just the blood of a boy of about 15 years of

He said all I needed to do was to get the person
since he had already contacted a herbalist. In my
desperation, I told him we would take Rilawan,
mama elewa’s son since I had easy access to him
because he usually ran errands for me and
sometimes I gave him money and used closthes.

We felt it was useless to go out and get someone
else since Rilawan stayed in the same area with us.

I made him understand that getting someone was
not the problem but taking him to the herbalist’s
shrine where he would be killed.

When we told baba our constraint, he gave Nuru a
ring and instructed us to just touch whoever we
wanted to bring with it , that the person would follow
us without hesitation.

On that fateful day, I called Rilwan and touched him
with the ring . To my surprise, he became dumb and
followed us to the shrine. We kept him there until it
was dark .

When it was midnight and there was no one in sight,
we took him away from the shrine and laid him on
the ground. While Nuru slashed his throat with a
knife given to us by the herbalist, I held a bowl
close to his neck for the blood to pour into it.

Rilwan did not put up any resistance as promised
by baba because he was hypnotized. And his
memory was gone.

After we collected the blood, we gave the bowl to
baba and carried Rilawan’s body far away from the
shrine to avoid suspicion and dumped it on the
expressway so as to give an impression that he
was hit by a vehicle. We thereafter, went to bath
with the blood as instructed by baba.

He performed some rituals fore us and mixed the
blood with a black native soap and gave us to bath
with after which he said we would become rich.
But after bathing with the substance, by the third
day, we did not see any money as promised by

We were as poor as we used to be . We were
so angry and decided to go to baba’s place to fight
with him.
But on our way, Rilwan’s mother held me and asked
me to produce his son for him. She said she was
informed that he was last seen with me.

vehemently refused to let go of my trouser even
when I denied. This caused a scene and people
gathered around me and started beating me. Nuru
who was with me managed to escape. Policemen
from Seme division came and took me away. It was
at that moment I opened up.

But Nuru who lured me into it is nowhere to be
found . I am left to bear the brunt alone . If I had
known, I would have continued working for my
master where I was paid N1,500 every month.

most painful aspect is that I do not have a mother,
father, sister or brother. I am just all alone in the
world. I do not want to die even though I partook in
killing somebody “, he said in an emotional laden

After his arrest, policemen reportedly took him to
the herbalist shrine where the suspect showed
them the bowl that was used to drain Rilwan’s

The herbalist identified as Soji Akodiya did
not deny demanding for a human blood from
Muyideen and his fleeing friend but he stated that
the killing never took place in his shrine.

Out of curiosity , this reporter was forced to ask
why he looked so haggard and tattered when he
could make money to take care of himself.

response,he looked at the reporter , smiled
sheepishly and said, “you will not understand”
Continuing he said : “ Yes, I told them what they
needed for money ritual was human blood.

money ritual is one of the greatest tasks in our line.
I told them they could either use their own blood for
it but I believe they never wanted to and brought
that of the boy. I was not around when the boy was
slaughtered .

I did not even know when they brought
him. He was not even killed in my shrine….”
But Muyideen interrupted saying “It is a lie. You
knew when we brought him. It was even you that
gave us knife and a bowl to put the blood.

You even
told us not to kill him in your shrine for security
purpose and you were aware we were going to kill
him that night”.

But the herbalist ignored the interjection and
continued “ I am a herbalist who speacialise in
attending to barren women. I also help people to get
jobs and also give charms to traders to sell more
than their fellow traders. I collect, N50 to N500 ,
depending on what the oracle demands.

It is then
left for my clients to appreciate me.  I got money
ritual charm from a colleague ten years ago when
all herbalists went for a meeting in Ijebu-ode .
Usually, what we do at such meeting is to help

For instance, if I have the cure for any
disease and others do not, I will give to them and
vice visa.
That was how the baba gave all of us ogun owo
(money ritual charm)and instructed us on how to
administer to our clients . I have never used it
before, this is my first time. It was even when Nuru
came to me that I realised I had the charm”.

Asked why it did work for the suspect and his
fleeing partner in crime, the herbalist relied “ it did
not work because they did not follow my instruction.
The instruction was to bathe with the prepared
concoction nine days after its preparation but they
used it on the third day. Had they followed the
instruction, they would have noticed a total turn
around in whatever they set their hands to do .

Their businesses would have been lucrative . And if
they leave N1000 in the bag, they would wake up to
meet triple of what was there”.
Mystics. Pure mystics. It’s unbelievable the extent
many go to get rich. There are the politicians who
believe that charms can make them powerful and
transport them into powerful positions.

Even when
the efficacy of these rituals is in doubt, some
people still believe that rituals can change their
lives for the better. Evil men continue to chase their

One thing is clear. Evil begets evil.
There’s a price for every bad thing. Those who
indulge in these primitive and devilish tendencies
never end up well.
