The Abba Kyari led operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) of Lagos State Police Command had over the weekend caught and arrested two men with a human skull in Lagos state.
One of the suspected human parts dealers who identified himself as Dipo Olorunto,35, disclosed how he had travelled from Nigeria to Cotonou, Benin Republic, to get the human skull which he said was bought for N12, 500.
According to Daily Independent, Olorunto who claims to be farmer and married with four children said he was on his way to deliver the skull to a herbalist named Baba Isegun also known as Asiwaju who bargained to buy it at the sum of N20, 000 in order to use it to treat sicknesses like madness.
Olorunto said, “Baba Isegun told me to bring a human skull for him to buy. He said he uses it to treat sicknesses such as madness. I work as a farmer in Atan Ota area.
“It was a friend who introduced me to Baba Isegun that I could help him get human parts. I have to go to Cotonou to buy the head. I wanted to sell it to him for N20, 000. But police arrested me before I got to him.”
It was also learnt that the suspected buyer Baba Isegun was arrested at Atan Ota area of Ogun State.
