Ibadan: Police arrest 11 people with human remains The Police Command of Oyo State says that 11 people have been arrested for having nine dry human skulls, one fresh human skull, intestines, and other important body parts.

The command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Adewae Osifeso, disclosed this on Thursday while briefing journalists in Ibadan.

Osifeso said that the suspects were taken into custody from their hideout in the Orita-Aperin area of Ibadan. He also said that 16 other people were taken into custody in connection with an alleged kidnapping and armed robbery.

He explained that a police monitoring unit’s covert intelligence gathering on February 22 revealed the suspects’ criminal activities.

The suspects, according to him, specialized in the sale of human skulls and other organs for ritual use.

Upon questioning, the PPRO stated that each of the eleven members of the criminal gang had admitted to the offense.

He told the media that the suspects admitted that the fresh human head and other body organs were taken from people who had been killed by their kingpin, Amuludun, who is still at large, and that the dry human skulls were taken from corpses at burial grounds.

Osifeso stated that an investigation to capture the fleeing suspects was currently underway and that additional developments would be made public later.

In the meantime, one of the suspects and the principal suspect’s wife, who is currently in custody, claimed that she was surprised to discover the human skulls in her husband’s office because she knew him to be an Islamic cleric.

She claimed that she went to her husband’s office to get money for food when the police arrived and searched the office where the skulls were discovered.

The seven suspected armed robbers who invaded the Felele community in Ibadan with guns and other dangerous weapons, according to the command’s spokesman, have also been apprehended.

According to Osifeso, the victims raised an alarm as the armed robbers fled, and the alarm drew the attention of a police monitoring unit, which ultimately led to the arrest of the suspects.
