Operatives of Western Nigeria Security Network (WNSN), popularly called Amotekun Corps, have arrested a 40-year-old man, Mutiu Abdulrasheed, in Ibadan, Oyo State, for allegedly selling human parts.
The suspect was arrested on Saturday at about 3 am in his residence at Lagelu Local Government Area of the state.
Speaking at the parade of the suspect at Amotekun’s office on Tuesday, the Commandant, Col. Olayinka Olayanju said that the Abdulrasheed, who was a member of a gang that had been operating for long, was obtaining the human body parts by either killing human beings and cutting them into pieces, as well as exhuming fresh corpses from the grave, which were also being cut into pieces for sale.
Exhibits recovered from him included a human skull, human bones, severed hand, locally-made guns, cutlasses, charms and amulets.
Col. Olayanju disclosed that Amotekun had been on the trail of the suspect for months, with the engagement of a young man as a mole, in order to get the details of his involvement in the crime
