Emotions ran high, yesterday, at White Sands area of Isheri-Osun,
Lagos, following a startling revelation by a teenager of how he lured a
three-year-old child to a Muslim cleric, popularly called Alfa, who then
killed him.
The 15-year-old suspect, a primary six pupil, stated that the cleric,
Kazeem Alimson, paid him N500 to lure the victim to a designated point,
from where she was taken away to be killed.
Vanguard gathered that the victim’s mother, Chinasa Okereke, was
bathing her children outside her compound on Akogun Street, Tuesday
night, but went inside to get a wrapper with which to strap her youngest
child on her back so she can attend to others.

But apprehension set it when Okereke came out only to
discover that her child was nowhere to be found.  According to the
devastated mother, who spoke with Vanguard during a visit to her house
yesterday

when I asked where he was, his sister said
he went into one of our neighbour’s apartment. But on getting to the
apartment, he was not there. I was informed that he went out with my
neighbour’s nephew. “But when he came back home, he said he did not know
anything about my son’s whereabouts. He admitted to have seen him
earlier, but said that he only saw him walking towards the opposite
direction.”
A search around the vicinity was organised, but the boy was not found.
Policemen from the Isheri-Osun Division, who were contacted the next
day (Wednesday) stormed the area and effected the teenager’s arrest, his
guardians and other occupants of the building. During interrogation, he
opened up, revealing how he took the missing child to Alfa Alimson,
thereby leading to the latter’s arrest.
He then led policemen to an uncompleted building within the area,
where the remains of the missing boy was found— gagged, with his limbs
bound.
Explaining how the act was carried out, the teenager who hails from Abia State, said:
“This man (pointing to Alfa) told me to
bring the boy. That night, he gave me N500 and was waiting for us. “I
took the child to him and he drove to the uncompleted building. When we
got to the site, he covered the boy’s mouth with a red cloth, tied him
up and started saying some Juju language (incarnations). Later, he hit
the child’s head three times with a stone. “He warned me not to tell
anybody. He said if I do, he will kill me. He showed me a juju knife,
with which he said he would butcher me if I revealed what happened to
anybody. “That was why I told everybody that I knew nothing about the
boy’s disappearance when I came back home.”
Denial However, Alfa Alimson denied knowing anything about the boy’s
murder. He simply stated that he did not know what the teenager was
talking about. He said:
“I was sleeping in my house yesterday, when
I heard people shouting outside. When I came out, I saw some policemen
around. I demanded to know why the policemen were there and was informed
that a dead child was found in the uncompleted building. “I went back
inside. But 30 minutes later, police came back and arrested me. I don’t
know this boy (the teenager) and I have never spoken to him.” “You’re
lying” But at this point, the teenager interjected, saying “he is lying.
He was giving me signs not to talk. I saw when he hit the boy with a
stone on the head three times.”
Residents, who throng the scene, were seen in different groups giving
different accounts of how the act was committed. Two police vans from
Isheri-Osun Division were sighted at the scene, with some policemen led
by the Divisional Police Officer, Emeodi Camillus, a Chief
Superintendent of Police.

Angry residents, who called for jungle justice, were prevented by the
policemen from getting close to the suspects. The suspects were then
driven to the station in one of the police vans, with some inquisitive
residents following on motorbikes and on foot.
