One Pastor Femi and one Alfa named Kabiru have been arrested in Ede area of Osun State for being in the business of buying human parts from one Ismail Adewuyi. 

Adewuyi was caught at Muslims’ cemetery in Ede on Saturday with the head of a female corpse and her intestines having exhumed the body interred.  

Speaking on the incident on Wednesday at a press conference, Secretary of the Association of Imam and Khatib in Osun State, Sheikh Abdullahi Olohunlomerue, said Adewuyi has been singing canary in detention and has told police that one Pastor Femi and Alfa Kabiru are his customers who buy such ‘materials’ from him. 

Olohunlomerue called on the police to dig deep into the suspect’s activities, adding he (Adewuyi) was even part of the team that buried the corpse of the woman last Friday, only for him to return to the cemetery on Saturday and cut the head. 

His word, “After he (Adewuyi) was arrested, he mentioned one Adbullateef as his accomplice, who ran away when the guards engaged them in a gun duel. 

“The woman they beheaded was buried last week Friday in the evening and the suspect was part of those who went to bury her. There was another corpse whom the evil perpetrators cut his two hands and legs and brought out his intestines. 

“After the accused got to the Police State Criminal Investigation Department (in Osogbo), he confessed that they were selling corpse parts to one pastor Femi and one Alfa named Kabiru. Both of them are now with the police. We want to appeal to the police to do a thorough investigation and prosecute the evildoers to serve as a warning to others who want to engage in such activities.”
