“The suspects were arrested with two decaying hands and two legs of one Kehinde, whose surname and address are still unknown. The principal suspect, one Adewumi Gbadamosi, confessed to the crime and said the victim’s head was given to one Olagunju Adetunji for rituals,” the CP stated.

Gbadamosi told journalists that he shot Kehinde dead while on night guard duty post in Osogbo, adding that after shooting, he dismembered him, took some parts and threw the remains into a river.

The 50-year-old herbalist explained that he gave the head to Adetunji and his friend, Saka, who had approached him for help because of poor patronage.

He also said Ajani, who was also working as a night guard, assisted him to carry the deceased after he had killed him.

Adetunji who denied receiving the deceased’s head from the herbalist, admitted meeting Gbadamosi once in his church after his friend, Adetimilehin, brought him for spiritual help.
