A young man has found himself in trouble in the community he lives in after being caught by a young girl while he was about taking his bath on a grinder used by occupants of a compound house.
The video which was sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram saw the young man being questioned over his action after being caught about to perform the dastardly act.
The story had it that the young man, a carpenter, had received instructions from a Muslim cleric known as an alfa, to perform the 'ritual' in order to become rich.
However, before he could stand on the grinder used by members of his household, he was chanced upon by a young girl who in turn told on him and he was apprehended.
The incident is reported to have taken place in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.
Excerpts from the post read, "A young carpenter was, this morning, nabbed in #Ibadan, Oyo State, while trying to use the destinies of his neighbors for money ritual.
The suspect was spotted, by a young girl, having his bath on a local grinder used by all the occupants of the house where he resides at Moniya garage."
Upon interrogation, the carpenter indicated that nothing was bound to happen to any member of the household since he had been caught.
It is yet to be ascertained whether any unfortunate fate was going to befall the occupants of the compound house.
Some social media users who saw the video took to the comment section to react to the man's wicked intentions with some calling for a strict punishment to be handed down to him.
However judging from the video and some reactions, the young man was left off the hook.
tope_bhee, called for the immediate arrest of the carpenter, "Mad people and they are just letting him go like that i pity y'al in that compound..smh."
cubani007, could not fathom why authorities let the carpenter to walk a free man, "Sooo they left him!!!??? To go back and try another method to get Rich ♂️they should have arrested him and thought him a lesson" he wrote.
