A human parts dealer, Yusuf Adenoyin has told officers of the Ondo State Police Command that he dumped his former business of selling palm oil for human parts because of its lucrative nature.

The police boss said the suspects confessed to having participated in the robbery, where one Scania truck with reg no: JJJ 701 YE, valued  at ₦12 million, and sixty-one 50 kg empty gas cylinders were stolen.

He said Ekene Okorie who drove the stolen truck, led detectives to one Emmanuel Okike, aged 45 who bought the stolen gas cylinders at the rate of ₦36,000 each.

He said the stolen Scania truck has been recovered in Benin City, Edo State, while all sixty-one 50 kg empty gas cylinders were recovered from the receiver, Emmanuel Okike in Lagos State.

Speaking on the arrest of Adenoyin with human skulls, Oladipo said, “On 10th of June, 2024, at about 0800 hours, personnel attached to Police Safer Highway Patrol at Isua/Epinmi checkpoint, while performing their lawful duty flagged down a Nissan Salon car  en route to Akure.

“While the vehicle was being searched, one of the passengers took to his heels and the police pursued and arrested him. His load was searched and eight dry human skulls, fresh human flesh, and charms were found in a wrapped polythene bag concealed in a garri sack he was traveling with.

“The suspect, Yusuf Adenoyin, age 31 years, stated that he was going to supply the items to herbalists. He also confessed to having supplied seven human skulls before he was arrested. The investigation is ongoing to apprehend his accomplice.”

Confessing to the crime, Adenoyin said, “This will be my third time in this business. On the first trip, I sold four, the second time, three, and the latest one eight. This flesh comprises both human parts and dog heart. I bought the dog heart at Ibilo.

“For the skull, I usually buy it from my friend, Ismaila, who usually get them from burial grounds. Before I ventured into this business, I was buying palm oil and cashew nuts and reselling them.

“My mother has been sick, we took her to Lokoja and the doctor said we need two million naira to revive her, so I had no choice but to venture into the skull business. I intended to leave the business once I gathered the money. So far, from the seven that I have sold, I have made N245,000. I sold them to different people.”
