As can be seen in the video, the man was tied up in order for him not to escape or disappear using his voodoo powers. Two yam tubers were also placed in front of him
A news update by Daily Post later revealed that the suspect, whose identity could not be confirmed, was slain and set ablaze.
According to the report, angry villagers of Ashi, Bodija, and Akobo area in Ibadan arrested him for allegedly turning two Bashorun Ojoo High School pupils into yam tubers.
The incident reportedly occurred in the school’s main entrance.
Sources told Daily Post that the man was apprehended after it was revealed that he had converted the students into yam tubers.
The residents’ attempts to persuade him to turn them back were fruitless.
According to the sources, the man’s inability to provide concrete answers enraged the locals, who set him on fire. The suspect’s remains were later dumped in front of the school fence.
Daily Post also revealed that the teachers at the school refused to comment on the incident, so it’s unclear if he actually turned the students into tubers.
