A 32-year-old man has narrated how two of his colleagues died immediately after drinking a mixture of black powder and regal gin in the course of performing a money-making ritual in Ondo State. One of the deceased is a 17-year-old boy.

Jonathan Idigho, who claimed to be a resident of No. 17 Airport Road, Benin City, Edo State, told the police at the Okitipupa Division of the Ondo State police command that a yet-to-be-identified male herbalist took them to Oloto Road, Ikoya community in Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state, where he administered the fatal mixture on them.
