friend advised me to stop riding okada and to join him in ritual killing and
asked how he carried out his activities, he confessed “Whenever I see somebody
walking alone without being conscious of who is watching, I walk slowing up to
them and hit them with a big ply wood on their heads after which they
fall unconscious, I then drag them into the hole and use a knife to cut them
into parts which I sell to some churches and some ready buyers who indulge in
ritual killing for easy money, and some times when I feel hungry late in
the night, I eat some parts for food.

1,500, penis 1000, hands and legs for 3,500.
