  3. This is not new. It has been happening in rural areas. They should transfer the case to Customary Court or let their Chiefs handle it. Hunters use to change to animals using magic power during hunting for several reasons. They are into mysterious practices. If you innocently shoot at such animals and their juju fail them, then you don buy market.

  4. Surprised that people are still reasoning like this in this era of internet and social media. It shows that many Yoruba's are educated illiterates.
    Anyway let them go to the court and plead magic as alibi. See people suggesting they take a serious criminal offence of murder to customers court or chief. NE should mind the kind of comments people leave here because some has the capacity to pollute people's knowledge. Su ogbo!
