THE Ogun State Police Command has said that it has arrested two suspected ritualists, Akeem Usman and Ifadowo Niyi, who were said to have confessed to slaughtering an 18-year-old 100-level student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Quadri Salami after which his vital body parts were dismembered for ritual purposes.

The decomposing body of Salami, reported missing last month by his father at Kemta Police Station, Abeokuta, was found buried in a shallow grave at Mile 6, Ajemo area of Abeokuta.

Niyi was alleged to have gone with Salami’s head and his two wrists and paid N100,000 into Akeem Usman’s account as proceeds from the sale of the body parts.

The suspects were said to have thereafter continued to sell the deceased’s other body parts on demand to internet fraudsters, buried the heart, two legs, and flesh inside a plastic rubber for rituals and used the remaining parts for money-making charm.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Omolola Odutola, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists on Wednesday night.

According to the statement, the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, on Wednesday, led a Tactical Squad to Mile 6 in the Ajemo area of Abeokuta to a shallow grave to exhume the decomposing body parts of the deceased after a tracking clue beamed at one Akeem who was arrested in possession with the victim’s phone.
