ILORIN —The Commissioner of Police, Kwara State, Mr Ambrose Aisabor, yesterday, paraded two suspects, among others, for dealing in human parts.
The third person paraded was said to be an accomplice. Speaking at the Police Headquarters along Ahmadu Bello Way, Ilorin, the commissioner told newsmen that the two suspects were arrested with human head, leg and hand in Tabira village, Okuta in Baruten Local Government Area of the state.
Aisabor said the suspects, Amos Kareem and Abubakar Ladan, were arrested following a tip-off, stressing that during investigation they confessed to the crime. One of the suspects, Abubakar Ladan, told Vanguard that Amos Kareem promised to give him a motorcycle if he could find him human head, hand and leg.
He said his desire to own a motorcycle prompted him to go to a burial ground and cut off the human head, leg and hand that were displayed. Amos Kareem, when asked what he was doing with human parts, said some politicians used to buy the parts from him.
The suspects, however, refused to disclose the identity of politicians who patronise them. The police also paraded a man said to be an accomplice, having accommodated the suspects in Tabira village, claiming that he never knew that the suspects were involved in such atrocity.
