The Lagos State special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) has taken into custody a suspected human parts’ businessman by the name Olorunto Dipe (35).
During interrogation, he confessed to have bought a human head for N12,500 from Cotonou, Benin Republic, with intention to sell it for N20,000.
A police source said the suspect was arrested by a SARS decoy team led by Abba Kyari, a Superintendent of Police (SP), at Ajibawo in Atan-Ota, Ogun State, on October 22.
Olorunto said: “It was one Asiwaju at Ado Odo-Ota in Ogun State, who asked me to bring a human head. He said he would use it to cure me of leprosy. I went to Cotonou and bought it for N12,500 with intention of selling it for N20,000 to him. I was arrested with the head as I wanted to go and deliver it.”
Asiwaju was arrested and granted bail when he denied knowing Olorunto.
Olorunto is lamenting that Asiwaju denied him. He said: “If I am released, I will stop dealing in human heads. Please tell the police to forgive me; I will not do it again.”
