“The woman they beheaded was buried last week Friday in the evening and the suspect was part of those who went to bury her. There was another corpse whom the evil perpetrators cut his two hands and legs and brought out his intestines.

“After the accused got to the Police State Criminal Investigation Department (in Osogbo), he confessed that they were selling corpse parts to one pastor Femi and one Alfa named Kabiru. Both of them are now with the police. We want to appeal to the police to do a thorough investigation and prosecute the evildoers to serve as a warning to others who want to engage in such activities.”
