Men of Nigeria Hunters and Forest Security Service have arrested a 28-year-old herbalist, Ismail Adewuyi, with the head and intestines of an unknown female corpse in Ede, Osun state.
It was learned that Adewuyi had stormed the Muslim Cemetery located at Oke Yidi in the early hours of Saturday, armed with assorted charms, exhumed a corpse, cut the head and brought out its intestines.
Luck, however, ran out on him while making his way out of the scene of the crime, as a member of Nigeria Hunters and Forest Security Service who had suspected Adewuyi’s movement and laid an ambush quickly arrested him.
A source in Oke Yidi, who preferred anonymity, during an interview on Sunday said the suspect, while being interrogated by the hunters, said he was a herbalist.
The suspect was later handed over to the police, while those that arrested him recorded his confession on video. The suspect is with the police,” the source said.
When contacted, Osun Police Command spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, on Sunday confirmed the arrest of the suspect, saying an investigation has commenced into the crime.
