A suspected ritualist has been burnt alive in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.

Naija News learnt that the suspect, who’s yet to be identified was killed on Friday morning.

According to reports, the middle-aged man was arrested by the angry residents of Ashi, after he allegedly turned two students, Bodija, and Akobo of Bashorun Ojoo High School into tubers of yam.

The incident occurred at the front of the school.

In the video obtained by Daily post, the middle-aged man was tied and interrogated as the efforts made by the residents to prevail on him to turn them back proved to be abortive.

His inability to provide concrete answers made the angry residents set him ablaze.

The remains of the suspect were later dumped at the front of the school fence.

Efforts made to get a reaction from the Public Relations Officer of the state police command, Adewale Osifeso, also proved abortive as several calls put through his mobile phone were not answered.
