Police authorities in Osun State have arrested three young men on the Osogbo/OAU Ife Campus Road in Ile-Ife for being in possession of a human heart.

State police spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola, said two of the suspects were apprehended after they were flagged down during `Stop-and-Search’ duty.

“The Osun State Police Command, in its efforts to sanitise the state of incessant ritual killings and other vices, has arrested three young men.

“On April 7, at 11a.m., detectives on `Stop-and-Search’ duty accosted three men on a motorcycle on the Osogbo/OAU Ife Campus Road.

“They were flagged down, but rather than stop, they sped off and were pursued by the police team.

“They were eventually arrested at Safejo Area of Ile-Ife, and a human heart, which they claimed belonged to one of their friends, and various charms were found on them.

“As investigation was going on, one of the suspects took ill and died while on hospital admission. The corpse has been deposited at the state hospital for autopsy.

“The two other suspects will be charged in court upon conclusion of investigation,’’ Opalola stated.
