Ogun State Police in Nigeria arrested five suspected ritualists on Friday, including two women, with a human head and other body parts in the Joju area of Ota in the Ado Odo-Ota local government.
This came barely one month after a herbalist was caught with 18 human skulls in the same local government.
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement, said the suspects were arrested during a joint operation by men of the state Police Command and the Special Anti- Robbery Squad from Lagos Command.
The suspects were reportedly caught following a tip-off.
“The Divisional Police Officer in charge Otta Division, CSP Gabreal Idibie, led a team of operatives to assist the SARS Lagos, who got first hand information, to Joju area where the five suspects were arrested and exhibits recovered for further investigation and adequate prosecution,” Adejobi said.
“The suspects arrested are Kubura Salami, Tantolorun Abimbola, Kafaya Popoola, Wahid Ibrahim and Adamu Rafiu.”
