A middle aged man was yesterday arrested in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital while allegedly in possession of human parts.
The suspect was said to have been monitored by residents of Ita Kudimo, Abata Suban, Pakata area, in the past few days after speculations that he possessed a corpse in his building.
The State Commissioner of Police, Olusola Amore, said “It is true that a man was caught with human parts today.
“Neighbours of the suspect swooped on his residence at about noon on Sunday and the suspect was allegedly caught with human parts.
“He was later dragged to Adewole Police station.
“His house was demolished and his properties were carted away by hoodlums who took advantage of the situation to perpetuate their dastardly acts.
Amore added, “There was a crowd trying to lynch the man. In fact, they had set ablaze his car because they discovered that some odour was coming out of his apartment.
“On a closer look, they discovered that he had human parts, skulls and other parts, while they were trying to lynch him, police was informed and moved to the place and arrested him.”
