The Lagos State Police Command on Sunday said it has arrested a suspected ritualist and recovered a coffin and fetish items from the shrine.

“That their activities has instilled fear and panic in the community. A team of Police officers, led by the Divisional Police Officer, visited the scene.
The principal suspect, Dona Asogba, was arrested while his partner took to his heels. A mini size wooden coffin and all sorts of fetish items were recovered from the shrine.
The shrine is suspected to be used for criminal purposes. Investigation is ongoing,” Elkana said.
