Oladimeji Raji, 43, and his wife, 35-year-old Adejumoke, have been arrested over possession of fresh human parts.

The couple was arrested by the Ogun State Police Command after hands, breasts and other human parts were found at their 72, MKO Abiola Way, Leme, Abeokuta residence.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

He said the couple claimed to be herbalists and got the parts from Michael, a resident of Adatan, Abeokuta.

Oyeyemi said the suspects were reported at Kemta Divisional Headquarters by the Baale of Leme Community, Moshood Ogunwolu.

He said Ogunwolu told the police that one Pastor Adisa Olarewaju, a co-tenant with the suspects, informed him of an offensive odour, coming out from the room of the suspects.

He said, “Upon the complaint, the DPO Kemta Division, CSP, Adeniyi Adekunle, quickly led his detectives to the scene, where a search was conducted.

“On searching the room, a plastic bowl containing fresh different parts of human beings were discovered in the room, and the couple was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, the suspects confessed they were herbalists, and that the human parts comprised hands, breasts and other parts, given to them by one Michael, who they claimed resided in the Adatan area of Abeokuta.

“All efforts to locate the said Michael proved abortive, as the suspects could not locate his house.

“It would be recalled that a dismembered body of an unknown person was found in a swamp at Leme area of Abeokuta about a week ago; it was not yet clear whether the parts were those of the found body or not.”

Oyeyemi, however, said the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, for discreet investigation.
