Three suspected ritualists who were found with a human heart have been nabbed by the Osun State Police Command.
According to a publication sighted on Instablog9ja, the suspects, Olayade Kehinde, 25, Olufemi Oriyomi, 21, and Raimi Sheriff, 21, were arrested on Thursday, April 7, by police detectives on ‘stop and search’ duty.
A corresponding statement issued by the Command’s spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola, reveals the trio on a motorcycle, were flagged down by Police on ‘Stop and Search’, “but rather than stop, sped off, and were pursued.”
They were arrested in Safejo area of Ile-Ife. The statement added that the human heart, which they claimed was one of their friends, and various criminal charms, were found on them.
Opalola further stated that one of the suspects, Oriyomi fell sick and was taken to hospital for treatment, but unfortunately, died while on admission.
His corpse, according to her, has been deposited at the State hospital for autopsy. “The remaining two suspects will be charged to court upon conclusion of investigation,” she said.
