The Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has arrested a 49-year-old man, identified as Ganiyu Shina, for bathing with blood in a community river in Kotopo area of the Odeda local government.

Shina, who lives at Oguji Street, Obantoko Abeokuta, was arrested on Thursday, December 15, 2022, according to a statement by the Ogun command’s spokesman, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, which was made available to SaharaReporters.

“A call was made to the police at Aregbe divisional headquarters by a member of the community, and the DPO, SP Bunmi Asogbon quickly led the patrol team to the scene, from where the suspect was brought to the station.

“On interrogation, the suspect claimed to have a spiritual problem, and that a herbalist instructed him to perform the ritual. He claimed further the blood in his possession was not human blood, but that of a cow.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police has directed the remaining blood be taken to a laboratory to analysis, to ascertain whether it was human blood or not.
