More than a decade ago, ritual killings became really rampant in Nigeria. In the late ’90s, there was an increase in kidnappings and killings all across the country. Personally, I have heard stories from people I know about ritual killings and kidnappings. At a younger age, we watched some mythical reality tv show that shared the experiences of people who had gone through some life-changing experience. Most were survivors of this experience. However, one of the most pending questions is how true this is. Is it really true that killing an individual would give wealth and a lot of other successes in life? Or are there really other things involved?
From One Logical point of view
A while back, I had this conversation. A very logical point of view will point out that these people are not being killed simply for the purpose of some spiritual successes. It is probably no news that vital organs of the body are needed in most parts of the world. Technically most people who are inexcusably rich through this means may be involved in selling vital organs. While it is not so easy to wave off some other facts, this is one fact that is here to stay.
To another point of view
Various people have testified with their lives about the honesty behind these things. It is believed that using a human is more than likely to make you succeed. Just like every other Yoruba movie, there is a twist to it. People who are ”being used” are supposed to be the perfect match. Otherwise, it is just a futile mission. While this may not sound logical, it is the realities of a lot of people. Again it is necessary to state that most realities different from what we see in everyday life is considered illogical until proven otherwise.
