Daniel Isaac, a 38-year-old man, who was caught by the Police in Lagos, yesterday, has given bloody confession of how he choked his landlord to death in Ijegun.
The suspect insisted that a unfamiliar spirit came over him and he jumped on his 50-yr-old landlord, Don Able. He later threw his dead body into an open septic tank in their compound.
Isaac and an associate, Emmanuel Chukwu, 36, were detained by the police on “stop and search” at Iba, while they were taking the landlord’s car to someone to sell it off.
According to the suspect:
“When I held him, we struggled but I overpowered him because that bad spirit in me is very strong. It makes me very powerful.
The spirit use to tell me to take my life.
It also makes me feel like taking my life. Once, it asked me to set myself on fire and throw myself into the open septic tank inside the compound.
It started tormenting me in my village when I was 14 years.
It has defied every cure. Sometimes, it will turn me into a madman. Its a black, strong, huge figure and it makes fire come from my eyes when it comes upon me. It usually torments me early in the morning or when the sun is at its peak.”
