A self -acclaimed prophet of a white garment church in the Sagamu area of Ogun State , Kehinde Onayiga , has been arrested by the state police command for the alleged killing of a 13 – year -old girl , Anuoluwapo Ajisafe , for ritual purposes .

The suspect was arrested together with an accomplice, Musiliu Jibril , who allegedly lured the victim into Onayiga ’ s church where she was killed .

Onayiga and Jibril were among 56 suspects paraded by the Ogun State Police Command at the command ’s headquarters in Eleweran , Abeokuta , on Thursday , for offences bordering on ritual killing , kidnapping , cultism , armed robbery, impersonation , among others .

Jibril told journalists that it was Onayiga who contracted him to source for a female virgin , adding that she was to be used with some fetish materials for some Internet fraudsters ( Yahoo boys ) .

He said , “I was able to lure the girl because she and her mother trusted me . It was the prophet ( Onayiga ) that contracted me to get a female virgin for ritual. He told me he wanted to prepare some charms for some Yahoo boys .

“I delivered the girl to him in his church at Sagamu and he promised to pay me N 20 ,000 . I am yet to get the money.”

Onayiga , who was dressed in his religious regalia while holding two goat horns wrapped in red cloths , denied the allegation . He said , “It is a lie ; he did not deliver any girl to me in my church .”

Onayiga said he trained under an Islamic cleric before leaving to start a white garment church .

Asked what he used the fetish -looking goat horns for , he responded , “ I use them to pray for those brought to my church for healing .”
