The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a man who was in possession of 18 human heads. The source of the heads was yet to be ascertained.
Policemen in the Ado-Odo Division in Ado–Odo Ota Local Government Area were patrolling Owode Road when they ran into the suspect, whose name was given as Adelani Ayomide.
Upon searching the man’s bag, a total of 18 human skulls were discovered, said the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
“The suspect hails from Ilaro, the headquarters of Yewa South Local Government,” Mr. Adejobi said. He added that the suspect “will be transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Eleweran, Abeokuta for further investigations into the crime.”
Speaking on the gory matter, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, promised that the case would be thoroughly investigated and that the suspect, if found culpable, would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
The commissioner also pleaded with the public to always assist the police in maintaining law and order in the state by volunteering useful information. In the specific case of the man arrested with human heads, the commissioner remarked that the police would need information that would lead to the arrest of any persons who may have collaborated with the suspect in harvesting the human heads.
