Man Arrested after he Allegedly Killed His Stepdaughter and Received N3,000 as Part Payment for her Head

The Ogun State Police Command on Tuesday paraded two suspects – a 63-year-old man, Korede Odubela and his accomplice, Lekan Lawal – for allegedly strangling his (Odubela) stepdaughter, Amudat Oshimodi, 16 to death.

Odubela was also reported to have received N3,000 from his son, Seun, who is a herbalist, as part payment for the deceased’s head.

According to PUNCH, the crime was committed at Imosan village, in the Odogbolu Local Government Area of the state.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Ahmed Iliyasu, who paraded the suspects alongside 10 others, said Odubela and Lawal were arrested by officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad on Monday, November 7, following a tip off on their activities.

He also said they sold the deceased’s hands to ritual killers.

Odubela said he connived with Lawal to kill his stepdaughter because the 16-year-old girl was always stealing her mother’s money.

“(Oshimodi’s) mother said we should kill her as a sacrifice for other children she had. She (Oshimodi) normally slept by the outside door. On that day, around 12 midnight, I invited Lekan Lawal, and he held the girl by the neck and strangled her while I held her legs,” Odubela said.

The deceased’s mother, Fausat, denied the allegation that she had asked her husband to kill her daughter.

Iliyasu said the case is still under investigation.

    Jesus Christ!!! #3000???!!!! Abi I no read am correctly? A child was carried for 9 months, labour, delivery, breastfeeding, bonding, sleepless nights, worrying an panicking for their safety and it all comes down to #3000 for that child’s head??? Good Lord! I can’t even think now, they should be taken to the police station, told to walk away n shot in the back. No space, our prisons are overcrowded already.

      Lets try to concentrate on the issue here and not place too much significance on the N3,000. Someone was murdered. It is a heinous crime. Whether it was done for N3,000 or N3bn doesn’t really matter and doesn’t change anything.

    No disrespect, but the person who had a deal with this murderer should be arrested and put in prison for life. N3,000 part payment for [email protected]### For a strand of human hair or for transport fare to get to the location of the murder scene…

    3k? ? This life can be so cruel to some. May you rest in peace baby girl. Your mother failed you. The one person you should be able to lean on in hard times.
    Do we even have a working social service system in Naija. Not sure the other kids are safe with the mom.
    The heart of some can be so wicked sha. I don’t even know what to say to people that know fully well to feed one mouth na problem but you will see them with five kids. Rich folks sef are now about that 2 kids and done life. It should be a crime to have kids you can’t provide for and i was told family planning is now free.

    So pathetic and very sad! It hurts so much when I read about parents hurting their own kids not to talk of killing them. I feel so sorry for vulnerable kids who are so defenceless because of their age. The wicked will never go unpunished! May God grant this beautiful soul rest in His kingdom. Heaven has got a new angel!
