A suspected human parts’ merchant, Olorunto Dipe (35), has been
arrested by operatives of the Lagos State special Anti-Robbery Squad
(SARS), The Nation newspaper reports
A police source said the suspect was arrested by a SARS decoy team
led by Abba Kyari, a Superintendent of Police (SP), at Ajibawo in
Atan-Ota, Ogun State, on October 22.
Olorunto said: “It was one Asiwaju at Ado Odo-Ota in Ogun
State, who asked me to bring a human head. He said he would use it to
cure me of leprosy. I went to Cotonou and bought it for N12,500 with intention of selling it for N20,000 to him. I was arrested with the head as I wanted to go and deliver it.”
Asiwaju was arrested and granted bail when he denied knowing Olorunto.
Olorunto is lamenting that Asiwaju denied him. He said: “If I
am released, I will stop dealing in human heads. Please tell the police
to forgive me; I will not do it again.”
