The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 29-year-old man, identified as Amos Olalere, for allegedly killing his younger sister with the help of his mother for money ritual purposes.
It was gathered that the man, who confessed to the crime, is a notorious internet fraudster, popularly known as yahoo boy.
Operatives of the command apprehended the suspect during a stop- and- search operation carried out along Itamaga, Ikorodu Road, in Lagos State.
The suspect confessed to the police that his mother, following a herbalist’s instruction, asked him to kill his younger sister.
The unidentified herbalist reportedly told them that he has to sacrifice one life which has to be a sibling to him for ritual so he can succeed in his Yahoo business.

The young man said “My mother took me to a herbalist who told me if I want to be successful in the yahoo business, I will have to sacrifice one life and that person must be my sister which I love so much.
“After hearing from the herbalist, it took me months before I could carry out the act even though my mother was also encouraging me to kill my sister so they can be rich.
“My mother planned the entire incident, by going out to buy a poison which she will put in my sister’s food.
“The herbalist also instructed that I must sleep with my sister, suck her vagina after she was dead then threw her into the river for the ritual procedures to be completed.”
They connived together and carried out the act but were arrested along Ikorodu road on their way to dispose of the deceased’ s dead body.
