We are not killers: Human parts dealers arrested in Sagamu

by Damilola Jagun

Three people have been arrested by the operatives of  the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, Ikeja, for dealing in human parts. Two human skulls were also recovered from them after being apprehended.

The suspects are two herbalists, Mustapha Muritala, Sunday Oluyeba, who are said to be popular in Sagamu area, while the third person is a female, Adenike Olanrewaju whose husband, Juwon Olanrewaju, the supplier of the human parts, fled from arrest.

Lagos State Police Command disclosed that they arrested the human parts dealers following intelligence report received on their activities. Commander SARS, Abba Kyari, led his men on a manhunt, which led to the arrest of the three suspects in Ojumerin area of Sagamu, Ogun State.

42-year-old Murtala confessed that he got into the business two years ago after getting an offer of N30,000 for a human skull.

He said, “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.”

“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 life.”

Meanwhile, the female suspect, Olarewaju said she was shocked to discover that her husband was involved in the human parts business.

She said, “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 2 am 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.”
