The Ondo state police command has arrested a forty-five-year-old suspected ritualist, Idris Sule Shaye, for allegedly dealing in human parts.
Parading the suspect before newsmen, the spokesperson for the state police command, Tee-Leo Ikoro, said Shaye was arrested after his neighbor, Ahmed Odere raised an alarm after detecting a foul odor in their building at the Owani area of Idoani and reported to the police.
Shaye was arrested and during his interrogation, he told the police that two brothers, Dipo Jimoh and Damaka Jimoh, contracted him to help them get a human skull.
Speaking, the suspect said: “It was Dipo and Damaka that contacted me to help them cut the head and hands of a dead man in Isua-Akoko area. They told me their father need human parts and promised me money if I am able to get it but the police arrested me before I could take it to them.”
The police say an investigation is ongoing and the suspect will be charged to court soon.
