The police command in Ogun says it has arrested seven suspected members of a gang that specialises in exhuming corpses and removing their body parts for rituals.

Abiodun Olamutu, the commissioner of police in the state, disclosed that a human heart and two kegs filled with human bodies were parts of exhibits recovered from the suspects.

He gave the names of the suspects as Moses Abidemi, Oluwo Monday, Peter Akiwunmi Ifatosin, Jamiu Yusuf, Sheriff Agbai and Osojieahen Alioneitoura.

Olamutu said the report of a missing lady, Sulaiimon Adijat, led to the arrest of the suspects.

Olamutu said the divisional police office, Onipanu, received a report that Adijat was missing on January 9 after she was invited out on a date by one Adebayo Azeez.

“Despite frantic efforts to locate her whereabouts, her mobile phone has been switched off since the day she was reported missing,” he said.

“Consequently, the anti-kidnapping unit of the command was drafted to unravel the mystery behind her disappearance and a technical-based investigation was embarked on.”

The police boss said investigation revealed that the suspects were involved in a money ritual known as ‘Oshole’ to produce N200 million within seven days.

“Oluwo Monday charged the duo of Agbai and Alioneitouria N800,000 to prepare the materials for the ritual,” Olamutu added.

“Oluwo Monday, in furtherance of his criminal intention, later contacted one Peter, who was not new in the trade of human parts, to source for a lady between the ages of 18 and 20 years.”

According to him, Peter was to deliver the lady’s mutilated body parts, specifically the head, two breasts, vagina and two wrists that would be used for the ritual.

“However, on January 10, Sheriff and Osojieahen collected the ritual money from Oluwo and travelled back to their location in Edo state,” he said.

“Trouble started when Osojieahen used the ritual element as directed by Oluwo, and complained bitterly that it failed to yield the expected sum of N200 million in seven days.

“A search was conducted in the shrine of Moses on Feb. 3 and 10, where female handbags, two cement sacks containing human bones were recovered.”
