FOUR men whose names were given as Babatunde, Rasheed, Hassan, and Ayo, who allegedly specialise in buying and selling human parts were yesterday arraigned before an Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on a two-count charge of unlawful possession of human parts.

The offences contravene Sections 7 and 2 and punishable under Section 12 of Kwara State Prohibition Law.

Inspector Ayeni Gbenga informed the court that they were arrested on December 2 following a tip-off by suspecting residents of Akerebiata area of Ilorin metropolis.

According to Gbenga, when the defendants’ house at Akerebiata was searched, some bones and flesh, suspected to be human parts, were recovered from their possession, adding that during investigation, Babatunde confessed that seven human skulls were brought and sold to the second defendant, Rasheed for N15,000 each.

Gbenga also told the court that Hassan confessed that his duty was to help Rasheed deliver human skulls to Kawu, before he urged the court to remand the four defendants pending completion of investigations into the matter.

Although all the defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges, Magistrate Monisola Kamson ordered the defendants to be remanded at Okekura Correctional Facility, Ilorin and adjourned the case till December 31 for further mention.
