40-year-old Kabiru Oyeduntan had been arrested by the Osun State Police Command with dismembered parts of a yet-to-be-identified woman.
Oyeduntan was arrested on Thursday, 10 June 2021.
In a statement released by DSP Folasade Odoro, the spokesperson of the command, the suspect was arrested after the police got an intelligence report that some ritualists beheaded an unknown lady at the Quarry Area of Apomu in the State.
A team of police operatives in collaboration with the local security outfits swiftly moved into action and arrested the suspect with the dismembered body parts of the said lady suspected to be 20 years of age.
According to Odoro, some of the body parts of the deceased are still missing. She said body parts recovered inside a box in one of the rooms of the suspect include the head, wrist, feet and some other parts of the severed body.
During interrogation, the suspect claimed one of his friends identified as Akin brought the deceased to his room to have s3x with her.
He said he left them in the room and when he returned, he found her dismembered body in his room, adding that he doesn’t know the whereabouts of his friend.
Oyeduntan will be charged to court as soon as possible and efforts are being made to arrest the said Akin and other members of the gang.
