Durojaye said further that the shrine was set up by a gang of nine fraudsters who met inside a police cell in Lagos and resolved to venture into the con business as a way of making money as soon as they get out from the cell.
While speaking to a correspondent, the suspect said “We are nine in this business. We met inside a police cell in Lagos and we became friend. It was from there that we planned this business. We are using Osogbo as the base and we set up the shrine here.”
“We usually bring our victims from Lagos and finish the deal here in the shrine in Osogbo. We are using this whole building and no one enters here that would not be scared. But it is a mere costume. We have some women among us whose role was to act as witches”.
“We have special rooms decorated in a scary way and we have one elderly man among us whose role was to act as spirit.
The Police boss who spoke to reporters, said that police detectives are on the trail of other members of the gang, and assured that they would be apprehended to face the full wrath of the law.
He warned Nigerians to always be careful with people promising to solve their problems for them, saying that only God can solve problems. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
