Adifala admitted to taking the money from the victim during an interrogation by agents, including N2.9 million, which he claimed was used to purchase black, brown, and white cows, rams, lavender perfume, rings, and other items to perform sacrifices at various times.
Along with the suspects, some of their trade tools were also taken into custody.
“I also linked up on the matter with Ifawole Ajibola, and we continued with the sacrifices together, until we were arrested by EFCC,” he said.
Ibrahim, who was the one who had prior contact with the victim, admitted collecting money at different times.
“Our own is just to pray and do the necessary sacrifices, which we did, and to leave the rest to God, however, along the line, the zoning for the Reps seat was taken away from Oye-Ekiti to Ikole-Ekiti,” he said.
