But when I got home I did not know what I was doing again. I just started looking for my brother’s wife panties and when I got the panties I, went back to the prophet. I didn’t steal the panties for rituals.
Hours after, my brother’s wife raised the alarm that she didn’t see her panties again and I was arrested,”He added
When the police arrested me, I was taken to Uso police station before they transferred me to Akure. Two panties belonging to my brother’s wife and three belonging to my younger sister were caught with me.He further stated
