A 300 level undergraduate of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, identified as Victor Nnacheta alongside four others have been arrested for allegedly engaging in money rituals.
The 20 year old student of political science consulted two Ogun State-based Islamic clerics, Kabiru Badmos and Nurudeen Shodaolu, to perform a money-making ritual for him with a human skull and other body parts for the whopping sum of N250,000.
The Police Public Relations Officer for the zone, Dolapo Badmus, on Monday revealed that the clerics then consulted two men named Olarewaju Jimoh and Mayewunmi Lukmon, who worked at a cemetery to exhume dead bodies for them.

“A modest achievement we have made is that of a 20-year-old man, who said he wanted to become a billionaire overnight. He consulted some herbalists/Islamic clerics, who asked him to get a human skull and other body parts.
“The herbalists/clerics hired two men, who work in a cemetery. The two men were able to exhume dead bodies. The two men confessed that they gave out skulls, which the herbalists/clerics grinded and mixed with black soap.
