The Kwara State Police Command has announced that it has apprehended two suspected ritualists with a fresh human head.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Ajayi Okasanmi, on Monday.
According to Okasanmi, Adeniji kidnapped one Rainat Yusuf of the same area, chopped off her hands, beheaded the victim, and dumped her lifeless body in an uncompleted building.
It was gathered that the victim, a 16-year-old girl, had left her home on an errand to buy some food items and seemed to vanish into thin air. Adeniji was subsequently arrested in connection with the case of the missing girl and during interrogation, confessed to the crime.
The suspect confessed that he sold one of the victim's hands to one of his accomplices who is currently at large. Meanwhile, Abdulmalik admitted to using the second hand for a money-making charm.
Okasanmi disclosed that investigations are still ongoing and the suspects will soon be charged to court.
It is quite disheartening that some youths in Nigeria are willing to commit barbaric and heinous crimes in pursuit of quick and easy money.
