Police Parade Man with Human Skulls, Burst Fake Naval Academy
Nigeria Police Osun State Command yesterday paraded a 42-year-old man, Adesina Adeniyi and 58-year-old, Oluwole Olapade for allegedly being in possession of two human skulls and decomposing liver.
Also, the command paraded two suspected armed robbery suspects who were arrested after a gun duel with Police at Osu in Atakumosa West Local Government Area of the state.
Parading the suspects, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Johnson Kokumo hinted that Adeniyi was a patent medicine shop owner and was arrested in Iwo while traveling in a commercial bus to Ibadan, Oyo State.
He added that the suspect was caught with two human skulls and a liver after a thorough search by men of 39 Police Mobile Force attached to Iwo Area Command.
The Police boss explained that the suspect who resided at Kajola area in Iwo, disclosed to the police during interrogation that the skull and the liver were recovered from a Muslim cemetery and a mortuary in the town, where Adeniyi was an attendant.
Mr Kokumo stated further that, following the arrest of the suspect and upon diligent investigation, his accomplice, Oluwole Olapade, a resident of Yemetu in Ibadan was trailed and arrested.
Olapade, a native doctor, who required human skull for charm told journalists that he had pledged to pay N20,000 per skull to the attendant, adding that he had gotten a skull before which did not produce money, hence, he decided another skull should be procured for use.
While Adeniyi was responding to questions from journalists, he explained that he sourced for the human skulls from a cemetery in Iwo town.
In another development, the Osun Command of the Nigeria Police also claimed to have burst a fake naval base operated by Nigeria Navy Coastal Merchant.
