Four men have been charged with murder in Nigeria's Ogun State after they killed a lady for blood money rituals.

The suspects, Nurudeen Adeniyi, 34, Tunde Banjo, 29, Temitope Alaba 20, and Tobi Olukoya , 20, are said to have kidnapped the lady and taken her to the house of a fetish priest, where they killed her with a knife.

The suspects, who reportedly extracted the heart of the lady for the planned rituals, are said to have confessed to the crime.

Police Commissioner Ahmed Iliyasu described the act as a "recession of human being back to cannibalism".

"That is bestial and we cannot allow that. We have carried out our constitutional duties by arresting them,” he said.
