It was a shocking revelation yesterday at the headquarters of Oyo State Police Command when a 50-year old suspect, Kamoru Oladele was paraded. The suspect revealed that his gang has human abattoirs in Oyo and Osun states and also narrated how he sells human parts for N25,000 or N30,000.
Oladele says he is a herbalist who makes fortune charms for people but claims he is not the one who sells human parts but buys from others and resells to those who comes to him for fortune charms.
“I am a herbalist and I do fortune charms for people. I am not the one that usually sells human parts. I buy from some people. This is my first time of engaging in this kind of business. I usually buy the human skull for N10,000 and sell it for N25,000 for those that come for fortune charms.”
He also disclosed that their trade was carried out in their human abattoirs located at Amuloko and Kuta villages in Oyo and Osun states, respectively.
The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Leye Oyebade, said the suspect was arrested after the special anti-kidnapping squad of the Command received an intelligence report on the activities of the suspects.
The police said they found one smoked human skull in his house when it was searched. The police explained further that the suspect used coded words for different human parts which can only be decoded by their initiates.
Oladele confirmed this saying that for instance,a human head that sells for N30,000 is called agbon (coconut).
Also paraded at the police headquarters was one Seun Ogunbamijo, who claimed to be a graduate of one of the polytechnics in the South-West. According to the police, they laid siege at some of the first generation banks in Ibadan, monitor bank customers who withdraw large sums of money and rob them.
But they ran out of luck when the anti-bank robbery operatives of the Command were drafted to the scene and they were arrested. Some of the items allegedly recovered from the gang include two locally-made pistols, one cut-to-size single-barrelled gun, 10 live cartridges, one Toyota 4-runner with number plates ABC 624 AH, and a Toyota Carina with number plates KS 599 AAA.
