Another reason to be careful of the kind of friends you keep.
A Muslim cleric in the Badagry area of Lagos, Fatai Afobaje, has been arrested for conspiring with some security men at Oko Agbonla, Magbon, to kill his friend, Rafiu Suleiman.
Afobaje and Suleiman had been friends for a long time, and the deceased had reportedly given lots of money to the suspect.

Police sources told Punch Newspapers that after the 40-year-old died, Afobaje, along with five others, shared his remains among themselves for ritual purposes  – the remains were recovered by men of the Nigeria Police Force on Monday after an intensive search.

Apart from the corpse, the police also recovered a clay pot which contained the fingers of the deceased with a few naira notes.

A source told Punch Newspaper that the two men had met in a commercial bus and became friends that lasted for years.

“The two men met in a commercial bus. Suleiman had offered to pay the transport fare of Afobaje after the conductor was about embarrassing him because he had no change.
“The Alfa then said he would like to know him better for being so gracious to him (Alfa). So, Suleiman gave the Alfa his address and asked him to visit. That was how the friendship started. From what we found out, Suleiman, who worked as a crane operator, would collect his salary and give half of it to Alfa at the end of the month and that happened for a long time.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, Kenneth Nwosu, confirmed the incident.He said, “The decomposing corpse of the victim has been recovered, while Alfa Fatai has been arrested.The matter has been transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba.”
