The most endangered commodity in Nigeria presently are ladies’ underwear particularly called panties.
The rate at which they get stolen by suspected ritualists is really baffling.
Adojoh Ojonugwa tired of not having enough money to lavish decided to cut corners by allegedly stealing panties belong to his sister and brother’s wife.
He was however arrested along with a pastor, Olajide Ogunleye, who was also alleged to be involved in the crime.
Five ladies’ pants were found inside Ojonugwa’s bag, two of which reportedly belonged to his brother’s wife, while his sister owned the others.
The 35-year-old Kogi State indigene was alleged to be planning to use the pants for money-making rituals.
It was gathered that when the brother’s wife discovered that her pants had been stolen by the suspect, she reported the matter at the police station, after which Ojonugwa was arrested.
Parading the suspect at the command’s headquarters in Akure, the Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, said Ojonugwa, in connivance with Ogunleye, stole the pants in a bid to use them for money rituals.
He said both suspects had confessed to the crime and would soon be
charged to court after the completion of police investigation.
Ojonugwa, while speaking to journalists, confessed to the crime, adding that he was instructed by his pastor, Ogunleye, to bring women’s pants.
said, “When things were difficult for me, I approached the pastor to
help me out spiritually and he first gave me something like seeds to
swallow and then asked me to go and bring women’s pants as ingredients
for money rituals.
“I obeyed the pastor because immediately after I swallowed the thing he gave me, I could no longer disobey him; I could not even ask him what he wanted to do with the female pants that he asked me to bring. All I knew was that I went to my brother’s house and stole his wife’s pants and those of my sister.”
