Police in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, said it has arrested a pastor, Olagunju Adetunji, 40, in Kajola, near Osogbo, for being in possession of human parts including hands and legs. The command also disclosed that it arrested Rasheed Ajani, Saka Akeem, Abiodun Adetimilehin and Adewumi Gbadamosi, a herbalist, for allegedly slaughtering a teenager identified simply as Kehinde in Osogbo, the state capital.
“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,” the police stated.
The police disclosed that the arrests were made at Oke Ayepe area of the state capital following intelligence reports. According to details provided by the police, Gbadamosi allegedly shot and killed Kehinde while on guard duty and later dismembered the body and took out the parts he needed before throwing the remains into a river.
Gbadamosi, a 50-year-old herbalist, explained that he handed over the head to Adetunji and his friend, Saka, who had earlier approached him for help because of poor patronage. He added that Ajani, another night guard, assisted him in taking the deceased after being killed.
Adetunji denied receiving the deceased’s head but admitted once meeting the herbalist in his church after his friend, Adetimilehin, brought him for spiritual help.
