The Ondo State Police Command has apprehended a man who was identified as Tunde Olayiwola for being in possession of a fresh human head.
Commissioner of Police in Ondo, Oyeyemi Oyediran, explained that Olayiwola was arrested on Thursday following a tip-off.
Oyediran said, “On December 23, 2021, around 9.20am, the police received information that a self-acclaimed cleric named Alfa Tunde Olayiwola, a suspected ritualist, was about to receive a consignment suspected to be a human head. The police immediately swung into action and the cleric was apprehended at the Ajagbale area of Oka, Ondo town.
“A fresh human head was found in his custody. He confessed that the head found in his possession was to be used to ensure that he had a better life.”
While confessing to the crime, the 55-year-old herbalist stressed that he purchased the head from a person, who he failed to identify, at the rate of N60,000.
“I will say the truth, I bought the head for N60,000 from a man I met at a party. I can’t mention the person’s name. I wanted to use the head to make money ritual. I am an herbalist and I have been doing the work for many years,” he said.
