Baby Placenta Found In Islamic Cleric’s House In Ilorin Kwara State
Aug 1st, 2014 – Picture: Baby Placenta Found In Islamic Cleric’s House In Ilorin Kwara State
A popular Islamic cleric in Laduba area of Ogidi in Ilorin has landed in trouble again few months after his release from jail.
Yesterday, some volunteers going round the community to appeal for contribution for a faulty transformer repair perceived offensive odour at Alfa Gani’s house and reported him to other members of Laduba.
It was said that curious to know what smelled, some members of the community rushed to Gani’s residence and demanded an explanation for the offensive odour oozing from his house.
An eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity said that Gani initially accused the community members of intruding into his privacy.
He was said to have rushed to the Oloje Police Station to report the community members.
The source added that before Gani could come back with the police, the community members had entered his house and discovered a boy with a baby placenta.
The enraged community members were said to have beaten up the boy, making him to confess that he was asked to prepare a charm by Gani, who allegedly exhumed the placenta.
While this was going on, our correspondent gathered that a woman, whose baby naming ceremony was recently held near Gani’s house, arrived at the scene.
On seeing the placenta, she was said to have rushed to where the placenta of her new-born baby was buried, only to discover that it was missing. She was said to have raised the alarm, alerting the community members to the ugly development.
When he came back with the policemen to arrest the community members, the commotion was still in progress.
The source said, “The residents narrated their discovery to the policemen. It was at that point that the policemen decided to search the entire house including an uncompleted building behind the suspect’s house, after which they discovered some human parts.”
It was gathered that the enraged mob vandalised Gani’s house and set it on fire.
Our correspondent gathered that the policemen, who were overwhelmed by the crowd, managed to prevent them from lynching the suspect as they whisked Gani away to their station.
It was learnt that the incident fuelled speculations that there were dens of ritual killers and markets where human parts were traded in Ilorin.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Kwara State Command, Mr. Ajayi Okasanmi, however, told our correspondent that there was no den of ritual killers in the state capital.
He said, “That is not true. What was discovered was not a den of ritual killers, but a suspected criminal who was used to performing fetish activities.
“The man was looking for a placenta of a new baby, exhumed the buried placenta and used it for whatever yet-to-be identified purpose.
“He just came back from jail. He went to where a placenta was just buried about three days ago before the incident. He dug up the placenta and while he was doing that, people saw him and tried to do things their own way.
In the process of damaging his house by the youth, the police got there and arrested the suspect with the exhibit.
“The police have started investigation to get to the root of the matter.”

@bezo and Networkbusy, i think it would have been appropriate if you say pastor and Alfa. Not Pastor and Islam. Leave Islam out of this pls.
I understand that this kind of thing is random among alfas compare to others. But we dont need comparison here. This so called Alfa is just one of the many End Time Prophecies.
Folks dont want to pray or read Quran or Bible anymore. They seek desperate ways. May Allah protect us in this though times. These things hardly happen in those days. Prophet Muhammad(saw) was reported to have said “if we live long we will see lots of sects and deviations. This is the period he was talking about. This man needs to face consequences of his action.

A cleric is a member of clergy: while a clergy is those ordained in church: the body of people ordained for religious service, especially in the Christian church. how a man with ritual activities or behavior be giving such a title Islam & Christianity did not accept ritualism at all please call a spear – spear is better if you remove Islamic cleric in this issue beside Islam has no cleric rather Preacher, Teacher, Imam,Maula, Sheik etc
