The Kwara State Police Command, last night, paraded five suspected ritualists, including a couple, with 11 human skulls and several human bones.

The state’s commissioner of police, Bolaji Fafowora, who briefed newsmen at the police headquarters in Ilorin said eight of the human heads found at the home of the suspects were already dry while the remaining three were fresh.

He added that police also found suspected human hair in possession of the suspects.

The police boss gave the names of the suspects as Azeez Yakubu, Salima Azeez,  Isiah Wasiu,  Abubakar Isiaka and Soliu  Yakubu. The chief suspect, Yakubu is a 37-year -old and works as a commercial driver.

Fafowora said: “Acting on intelligence available to the command about suspected ritual killings around Adewole area of Ilorin by some ritualists, detectives from the police command besieged a building located at No 20, Ile-Opa area of Aromadu, Adewole and one Yakubu Azeez and four other suspects were rounded up, a search was conducted in the building and 11 human skulls, several suspected human bones,  a bunch of suspected human hair and other items were recovered.”

It was gathered that some of the skulls were recovered from the ceiling where Yakubu and his wife lived while the others were recovered from the wife’s shop. 

While the main suspect denied involvement in the deal, his wife, who is currently pregnant, told newsmen she had disconnected from their nine-month-old relationship because her husband failed to give her satisfactory answers on why he usually went out in the night only to come back late.

The police boss said the suspects would be charged to court soon.
