Men of the Kwara state police command have arrested two suspected ritualists on Sunday, April 24, 2022.
A police statement revealed that the suspects were arrested with fresh human head and hands.
Speaking in a statement, the command’s spokesman (PPRO), SP Okansanmi Ajayi said the suspects were on a motorbike on Oke-Oyi/Jebba Road, at about 11:30 am, when they ran into the Command’s Operation Harmony policemen on stop-and-search.
“They attempted evading the officers on stop and search duty, an action that aroused the operatives’ suspicion, who hotly chased and forced them to a stop”, the PPRO said, adding that, “In the process of searching them, a bag containing a fresh human head and hands were found in their possession”.
On interrogation, the suspects, 35-year-old Wasiu Omonose, of Abioye Compound and Akanbi Ibrahim, 32 of Sayo Street, both in Share, confessed to taking the human parts to an Islamic cleric (Alfa) in Ilorin, for ritual purpose.
