A couple, 43-year-old Kehinde Oladimeji and his wife Adejumoke Raji have been arrested by operatives of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly being in possession of fresh human parts.
The couple was arrested in the early hours of Saturday following a report lodged at Kemta Divisional Headquarters by Chief Moshood Ogunwolu, the Baale of Leme Community, where the couple resides.
The Chief stated that one Pastor Adisa Olarewaju, a co-tenant with the suspects, informed him of an offensive odour coming out from the suspects’ room.
When the Police received the report, the DPO Kemta Division, CSP Adeniyi Adekunle, led his detectives to the scene where a plastic bowl containing fresh parts of a human being was found.
“On interrogation, the suspects confessed they were herbalists and that the human parts consisting of hands, breasts, and other parts were given to them by one Michael, who they claimed resides in Adatan area of Abeokuta.
“All efforts to find the said Michael proved abortive as the suspects could not locate his house.
“It will be recalled that a dismembered body of an unknown person was found in a swamp area at Leme area of Abeokuta about a week ago, it is not yet clear whether the parts is that of the found body or not”, the State Police Spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
