Man tells the story of how he beheaded his colleague at Ondo Indian hemp farm.

A 23-year-old man identified as Benedict Owalun, after being apprehended by the police  has disclosed how he beheaded his colleague in a cannabis sativa or Indian hemp farm in Ipele, in Owo local government area of Ondo State.

Owalun who was arrested and detained over the incident  has been  accused of beheading his victim named  Ekong with a machete fight after the victim  allegedly attacked him with witchcraft.

Recalling what led to the fight, the suspect said he began noticing failure of  penile erection and difficulty in urination after Ekong and another co-labourer threatened to “deal with him” spiritually after a quarrel.

He said:

“5 of us used to work on a farm in Ipele, where we cultivate Indian hemp for our boss called Mr Okadigbo. 

“We have been working there for about six months. So, on the last day when we are about to leave the farm, there is one of us called Felix and another known as Ekong who I have been suspecting of attacking me spiritually”.

“Both of them had been telling me that they would have killed me since if they have their way”.

“I reported the issue to Mr Okadigbo but he failed to intervene”.

“Later I began to have health issues as I could no longer urinate due to the spiritual attack by the boys. After a while, I confronted Ekong over the development but he threatened me with a cutlass and I took my own cutlass as well and we immediately engaged in a fight”.

“During the fight, he fell and I immediately cut off his head and the other boys ran away”.

“I took the head away to the hut and later, I saw policemen who came to arrest me.”

        Leo Tee-Ikoro, Ondo Police Spokesman confirmed this, added that investigation is ongoing.
