The police command in Kwara says it has arrested two suspected ritualists, Femi Adeniji and Shittu Abdulmalik, with a fresh human head in the Amuyo area, Offa.

This is contained in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman Ajayi Okasanmi on Monday in Ilorin.

The statement said the first suspect (Mr Adeniji) kidnapped an individual, Rianat Yusuf, severed her two hands, head and dumped her remains in an uncompleted building in Amuyo.

It said further that the deceased left her home on an errand to buy ‘kulikuli’ and had since not been seen. It added that the suspect was arrested in connection with a case of a missing girl, and during the investigation, Mr Adeniji confessed further that he had sold one of the hands to his accomplice, presently at large.

“The second suspect, Abdulmalik, confessed to having used the second hand of the deceased for money-making soap,” said the police statement.

“The commissioner of police warns of grave legal consequences for perpetrators of crimes and criminality in Kwara state.” The statement added, “The command, therefore, wishes to advise criminal elements to vacate Kwara state or risk being arrested, prosecuted and be permanently accommodated in the correctional facilities.”

The command warned parents and guardians to be cautious of ritual murders among the youth for money ritual purposes.“Investigation into the matter is ongoing. The suspects will be charged to court at the conclusion of the investigation,” said the police.

Meanwhile, police commissioner Tuesday Assayomo has advised the youth to shun the desire for quick and easy money, as there is no alternative to hard work.
