Islamic Cleric Allegedly Stoning 3-Year-Old Igbo Boy To Death For Rituals In Lagos

A muslim cleric in Lagos, Kazeem Alimson also known as Alfa has been arrested by the police for allegedly stoning a three year old boy named, Chiagozie Okereke, to death, whom he allegedly planned to
use for rituals.


The incident happened at the White Sand area of Isheri-Oshun in Ejigbo area of Lagos
State on Tuesday March 14th.
According to the Guardian, the suspect had paid a
primary six pupil named Simon Kanu N500 to lure
the deceased to his abode where he used a big stone to kill him.


Narrating how her son was lured from her home, Chinasa Okereke, the distraught mother of the
deceased said:


"Around 7:00p.m. yesterday (Tuesday), I
brought my children out to bathe
him. When I finished bathing the younger
one, I went inside to get the wrapper to
strap him in order to enable me bath the
other child. But on getting outside, I didn't
see my baby again. The sister said he
went into my neighbour's house but I didn't
see him there and when I asked, they said
he went out with Simon.
I called my son's name but there was no
response. Later, we saw Simon that night, I
asked him about the whereabouts of my
son, he said he did not see him. Simon
took my son, strangled him with his shirt
and stoned him to death. He is my third
child. I feel hurt. My heart is broken. I need
justice."


The culprits were later arrested by men of the
Isheri Osun Divisional Police station following a tip
off.


During interrogation, Simon confessed that he was
given N500 to lure the deceased to where the Alfa
was waiting for him. He disclosed that the Alfa
took him and the child to an uncompleted building
where the boy was murdered with a heavy stone.
"I went to site and I saw how he killed
Chigozie. He tied him up and was making
incantation before hitting him with a stone
three times. He said he would kill me if I
told anybody. He also showed me his juju
knife and that he would use it to kill me if I
told anyone."
When interrogated, the Muslim cleric denied the
allegation of being a ritualist. According to him, he
is a cultist.
"I was in my house sleeping when I heard
people shouting. When I came out, I saw
some policemen and when I asked, I was
told that they saw a dead child. I went back
inside, and 30 minutes later, the police
came back and arrested me. I don't know
the boy and I have never spoken to him."
While he was speaking, Simon interjected and
said:
"You are lying. He was giving me sign with
his eyes not to talk. I saw you when you
were using the stone to hit him until he
died."
Confirming the incident, the Divisional Police
Officer of Isheri Oshun said:
"When the police became involved, I
directed that all the persons involved be
arrested, including the boy. It was after he
was picked up that he confessed. He led us
to the Alfa and we arrested him. We
searched his house and the environs. We
found the boy dead in the uncompleted
building. He said they tied his hand and leg
with red clothes and while muttering
incantations, stoned the deceased three
times before he died."
