The long arm of the law has caught up with a pastor, a herbalist, and three other suspects in Kajola, near Osogbo, in Osun State for being in possession of human body parts.
The arrest of the suspects was confirmed in a statenet by the state Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, who said the men were arrested at Oke Ayepe area of Osogbo and Kajola ljesha.
According to him, the main suspect Olagunju Adetunji, a 40-year-old pastor was allegedly caught with human hands and legs.
Olokode said that other arrested suspects include; a 50-year-old herbalist, identified as Adewumi Gbadamosi, alongside three others named Rasheed Ajani, Saka Akeem, and Abiodun Adetimilehin.
He said that they were arrested for allegedly killing a teenager simply identified as Kehinde near a hospital in Osogbo.
Olokede said: “The suspects were arrested with two decaying hands and two legs of one Kehinde, whose surname and address are still unknown. The principal suspect, one Adewumi Gbadamosi, confessed to the crime and said the victim’s head was given to one Olagunju Adetunji for rituals.”
“While being paraded, Gbadamosi said he shot Kehinde dead while on night guard duty post in Osogbo. He then dismembered him, took some parts and threw the rest of the body into a river.’
“The herbalist said Ajani, who was also working as a night guard, assisted him to carry the deceased after he had killed him,” he added.
