I connived with my friends to u§£ my son for money rit¥als so I can feed my other nine children — 50-yr-old farmer

A 50-year-old Beninese farmer, Poni Bada, has been arrested by police operatives in Ogun State over alleged attempt to u§£ his nine-year-old son for money rit¥als.

Also speaking, one of his accomplices, Segun Shile, a commercial motorcyclist, said four herbalists earlier contacted declined engaging in money rit¥als sacrifice….(continue reading from NEXT slide)
