The Kwara State Police has arrested a suspected money ritualist who dug up graves to exhume corpses.
A suspected ritualist, Olayinka Abbas Akeem, has been arrested and paraded by the Kwara State Police Command with seven human skulls said to have been exhumed from a cemetery.
Punch Newspaper reports that Akeem was arrested along Ilorin-AjaseIpo road with a sack containing the human skulls by policemen on a stop and search operation on Tuesday, November 21, 2017.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Lawan Ado, said on interrogation, the suspect confessed that himself and his friend identified as Tunde aka Bante, exhumed the human parts from a cemetery located at Igbo Owu community in the Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state.
