Muslim cleric caught slitting girl’s throat in Oyo

It appears the residents of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, have not seen the end of bizarre incidents yet, as barely one week after the city caught global attention following the discovery of the infamous ‘House of Horror’, a Muslim cleric was caught on Thursday night while slaughtering a girl who had gone to him for spiritual help.

The suspect, Isah Salaudeen, 37, is currently being held at the Iyaganku Division of Oyo State Police Command for attempted murder of one Chiwendu Nkwocha (also known as Divine).

Salaudeen had started using knife to slit the throat of the girl after which he then used a cutlass to hack her. This made the lady to scream, jumped up from where she was lying and ran out for help.

But Salaudeen denied trying to deliberately kill the lady, saying he did not know what came over him. He said he believed he was manipulated by the spirits troubling Nkwocha to commit the criminal act.
