Police in Lagos have arrested two brothers, Ayodeji Obadimeji, 18 and Saheed Obadimeji,19, for alleged possession of a fresh human head.
Operatives of the Anti-kidnapping Unit of the Lagos State Police Command on routine patrol on the Ajah/Epe Expressway were said to have arrested the two brothers on June 26, 2020 with the human head hidden in a sack.
The sibblings, who confessed to the crime, revealed that a witch doctor, one Sodiq Abefe, asked them to supply him with a human head at N200,000.
The suspects live on Tunde Balogun Street, Shapati, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos State.
A source, who asked not to be named, said the two brothers sent the victim to get them a bottle of soft drink and when he returned, they killed him and cut off his head.
The source stated that the victim had been identified by his parents as Joseph Makinde, male, and 10 years old.
He said, “The remaining part of his body has been recovered from an uncompleted building at Shapati.”
The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, on Monday, asked that the case be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for thorough investigation.
