MAN SELLS HUMAN SKULLS IN OYO STATE
The Oyo State Police Command on Monday 29th of February paraded a 50-year old man at their headquarters who claimed to be a herbalist. He revealed the existence of abattoirs in Oyo and Osun where human parts were traded.
50year Old Kamoru Oladele, stunned people into silence as he narrated how he sells human parts for between N25,000 and N30,000, adding that his gang has human abattoirs in Oyo and Osun States respectively.
Narrating how the suspects was arrested, Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Leye Oyebade, said the breakthrough was made by the special anti-kidnapping squad of the Command after receiving intelligence report on the activities of the suspects.
Police further stated that the suspect had succeeded in giving their victims erroneous impression that they could make them rich through rituals.
The suspect Mr. Oladele told Newsmen: “I am a herbalist and I do fortune charms for people. I am not the one that usually sells human parts. I buy from some people. This is my first time of engaging in this kind of business. I usually buy the human skull for N10,000 and sell it for N25,000 for those that come for fortune charms.”
When police searched his house, they alleged said that one smoked human skull was recovered. Oladele uses coded words, which can only be decoded by their initiates, for different human parts, adding that “a human head that sells for N30,000 is called Agbon (coconut).”
He also disclosed that their trade was carried out in their human abattoirs located at Amuloko and Kuta villages in Oyo and Osun states, respectively.
Also paraded was one Seun Ogunbamijo, who claimed to be a graduate of one of the polytechnics in the South-West. According to the police, they laid siege to some of the first generation banks in Ibadan, monitor bank customers who withdraw large sums of money and rob them.
The police boss, Oyebade, said: “However, luck ran out of them after the anti-bank robbery operatives of the Command were drafted to the scene and they were arrested.” Some of the items allegedly recovered from the gang include two locally-made pistols, one cut-to-size single-barrelled gun, 10 live cartridges, one Toyota 4-runner with number plates ABC 624 AH, and a Toyota Carina with number plates KS 599 AAA.
