Two people are currently explaining to the police in Osun State how they came about the human skulls and liver discovered in their possession.
The duo – Oluwole Olapade and Adesina Adeniyi – were paraded by the state Commissioner of Police, Johnson Kokumo, at headquarters of Osun Police Command in Osogbo on Tuesday.
Kokumo said 58-year-old Olapade is a native doctor while Adeniyi, 42, works a mortuary attendant, at Muslim Cemetery.
The CP said the suspects had first successfully stolen a human skull but decided to go for a second skull after the money rituals performed with the first failed.
Kokumo said one of the suspects went to another burial ground and exhumed two human skulls and some body parts, which they intended to use for another money ritual.
Luck, however, ran out on Adeniyi, who was contracted for the job, when operatives conducting stop and search, intercepted a commercial bus conveying him along Iwo/Ibadan Road and recovered the decomposing human skulls and liver in his possession.
Adeniyi admitted stealing the human parts from burial ground which he intended to sell to Olapade for N20, 000.
The CP said during investigations, Olapade who contracted Adeniyi was arrested in Yemetu area of Ibadan, Oyo State.
Responding to questions, Olapade, admitted contracting Adeniyi to look for human skulls for him.
“At first attempt, the head I got didn’t bring money. So I contracted Adeniyi to get another head for me which he did. Unfortunately, he was caught by the police.”
