The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 65-year-old herbalist for possession of fresh human parts in Ijebu-Igbo North-East Local Government Area of Ogun State.
Chief Dandola Owotomo aka Amuludun Isese was arrested at his residence in Oke Agbo, Ijebu Igbo by police officers from Atan division, following a tip- off that he was among the three suspected ritualists who might have been responsible for the disappearance of a 70-year-old Kehinde Rabiu, who was declared missing at Idode-Imomo in the area.
Amuludun Isese, who was arrested after a search on his house where a shrine was uncovered with fresh human parts, was said to have been caught with human tongue, arm and female private parts.
It was gathered that the police got a tip-off from a member of the Idode-Imomo Community Development Association, CDA, in the area.
A Police source who craved anonymity said,”we went to Ijebu-Igbo with the support of the CDA member after we got a tip-off from the people. When we got to the man’s house, it was an eyesore. We discovered a calabash in one of his rooms where a fresh human tongue, human palm and a woman’s private parts were kept in a shrine drenched with blood assumed to be human blood.
“We transferred him to Eleweran on Sunday and the Commissioner of Police has shown much interest in the case and had ordered that investigation should commence into the matter and he has promised to get to the root of the matter.”
