Councillor Hired Us To Behead His Girlfriend

July 5, 2013

Barely two months after he was declared winner of the recently conducted LG election in Kogi State as a councillor, Yahaya Isah allegedly asked three of his friends, Suleiman Yunusa (35) Isiaka Yunusa (23)  and Alifa Maha (17) to bring the head of his girlfriend, 17-year-old Igbere Ogbadu.
Nigerian Tribune gathered that the head was for money-making rituals.
The men got the fresh head of Ogbadu but were all arrested by the  Kogi Police Command when Ogbadu’s parent raised the alarm when the girl could not be found.
 The decomposing, headless body of the girl was later found between Achigili and Ofoja village in Ofu Local Government.
Hon. Yahaya Isah however denied knowledge of the dastardly act.
The leader of the three-man gang confirmed it thus, “ it was the Councillor that sent us to bring the head of the girl but did not tell us what he was going to do with it.”
Explaining how they perpetrated the dastardly act, he said, “the girl was too close to the Councillor  as he always beckoned  to her anytime she passes in front of his house. He directed us to go and do it. I went to her house to pick her without knowing that people were watching me when we were leaving. I carried her on my motorcycle and headed for Ofoja village. However between Achigili and Ochoja villages, we strangulated  her to death.
Three of us did that. .After the  strangulation I brought out  a  very sharp knife with which l cut off her head. She struggled with us but unfortunately for her we overpowered her,” he stated further.
The man at the center of the whole saga, Hon Yahaya Isah,  however denied it saying, ” how would l have asked those boys to go and cut the head of the girl for me? What am l going to do with it as a councillor? I never did it.”
Parading the suspects, the State Commissioner of Police, Hilary Opara told newsmen that “ on June 6 at about 2100 hrs one of the suspects, Suleiman Yunusa, came to the family of the deceased, Miss Igbere Ogbadu ,and took her away without the knowledge of the latter’s family. And on 21-06-2013 a decomposing body of the lady was found between Achigili and Ofoja villages in Ofu Local Government Area with the head cut off and some parts removed.

“On receiving this information, the first suspect, Suleiman Yunusa was arrested and he confessed to have killed the lady on 13-6- 2013 with the Assistance of other suspects, Alifa Maha and Isiaka Yunusa respectively who are both from Ofojo village in Ofu local Government Area. The suspects  alleged that  Hon Yahaya the councillor representing Alojim ward in Ofu Local Government Area contracted them to provide human head for him. They would soon be arraigned in court.”
