Photo: Human Parts Dealers Arrested In Ogun

Operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, Ikeja,
Lagos have smashed a syndicate that specialised in selling human parts,
arresting three of its members.
The suspects are two popular herbalists in Sagamu area and a
mother of two whose husband was alleged to be a supplier of the human parts.
Recovered from the suspects were two human skulls suspected
to have been procured from a graveyard.

Their arrest, according to Police sources, followed an
intelligence report received by the Lagos State Police Command on activities of
human parts dealers, which made the Commander SARS, Abba Kyari, to embark on a
manhunt, that led to the arrest of the three suspects, Mustapha Muritala,
Sunday Oluyeba and Adenike Olanrewaju, with others still at large in Ojumerin
area of Sagamu, Ogun State.
Suspects’ account
During interrogation, 42-year-old Murtala said he ventured
into the business two years ago following an offer of N30,000 for a human
According to the father of one, “I am a herbalist from
Sagamu, Ogun State. I was introduced to human parts business by one Sunday
Oluyeba I knew through my friends, Olanipekun and Kazim, three years ago.
“My friends asked me to get 
native birds called eyeoshi and eyeoke, and I succeeded in getting them.
They later came and requested a human head with an offer of N30,000. They said
they wanted to use it to prepare concoction for a pregnant woman in labour .
“They told me they also use human parts to prepare
concoction for women who have difficulty in getting pregnant. What they do is
to grind the human skull, mix it with water and give to the woman to drink.
Such concoction cleanses the stomach, after which she would become pregnant.
“Sunday brought the human head and I paid him N15,000 for
it. This is the second time I am buying a human skull from him. I do not know
where he got them from.”
How I was arrested
“I was going about my herbal business when a man came and
demanded human skull. As I handed the nylon where I kept it to him, some men I
later discovered to be policemen swooped on me. I have never killed anyone in my
After his arrest, he was made to put a call across to
his  partner in crime, Oluyeba, demanding
a human head. Oluleba could not make it but instructed one of his herbalist
friends,Baba Beji, to go for the supply. He was arrested when he got there.
His confessional statement led operatives to another suspect
in Sagamu. The suspect, Juwon Olarewaju, another herbalist, reportedly fled on
sighting the policemen but his wife was arrested instead.
Mrs Olarewaju, 34, in her statement to operatives, expressed
shock over the sales of human parts by her husband.
According to her, “I have been married to Juwon  for five years and we have two children. My
husband is a herbalist but I didn’t know he was dealing in human parts. I was
arrested in my house at about 2am over the weekend. I swear, I didn’t know
anything about all these. I was arrested because my husband whom they came to
arrest ran away.
“These people implicated my husband in the matter; they said
my husband supplied them with a human head.”

The suspects, as gathered, would be charged to court soon
