According to the Commander of Amotekun Corps in the state, Akogun Adeleye, on Monday in Akure, the state capital, Odeniyi killed a man, severed his body parts and buried his remains in a shallow grave.

He said, “We want to intimate the public on the need to be very careful. Of late, the trend is shifting gradually from daily kidnapping to ritual killings. The public should be careful of the craze to make money by these young men.

“We have a suspect in our custody, Timothy Odeniyi, who was caught and arrested with the legs and hands of a human being wrapped in paper. Upon interrogation, he took us to where he severed the body of the person and hurriedly buried the person in a shallow grave.

However, while confessing, Odeniyi denied killing anyone but claimed that he “went to the burial ground to cut the legs and hands of one of the corpses buried there.
