The Nigerian police have arrested five suspected members of a gang that specialised in exhuming corpses from graves and removing body parts for ritual purposes in Ogun state.
The Ogun state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi on Sunday stated that the suspects were arrested on Saturday, March 11, 2023.
According to the police spokesperson, the suspects are; Oshole Fayemi, 60, Oseni Adesanya, 39, Ismaila Seidu, 30, Oseni Oluwasegun, 69 and Lawal Olaiya, 50.
They were nabbed following a tip-off that led the Divisional Police Officer of Odogbolu Division, Godwin Idehai and his men to their hideout shortly before they embark on another human parts harvest in Ososa town.
Oyeyemi said the suspects confessed they were in the business of exhuming corpses from graves.
