According to the lady identified as Oluwakemi Mercy, this lady in question was her niece. This relative of hers was suffering from a mental ailment and this was what gave her accusers the leverage to wrongfully accuse her.

The niece whose name is Aanu was set ablaze somewhere in Ilesha, Osun state. According to Kemi, what really happened was that the mentally ill lady was left stranded at the bus-stop after the person who used to foot her transport bills closed up for the day.

Not knowing what to do, she had asked a random man for transport fare, and suddenly, the person who she had asked accused her of stealing his manhood. A huge furor was stirred, and in the process, Aanu was burnt to death. This news about a female ritualist went around in no time.
