Victims side of the story
Their last victim noted that she boarded a private taxi in Ojota to Ojodu Berger.
“We were still in Oregun when the driver picked another passenger. I was at this point they started their trick on me.<br>I ended up in their office in Iju, where they collected all the money on me including the one in my account. They made me swear to an oath never to inform anyone. Thereafter, Osuji requested that I go get another N60,000 to complete the ritual.
After collecting N165,000, they still wouldnt let me rest. I borrowed N60,000, being the balance of what they needed. I was on the way to hand it over to them when I regained my consciousness. Luckily for me, with the assistance of a patrol team of RRS men, I was able to lure him out and got him arrested.”
