According to a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the FSARS operatives swung into action based on the information and discovered human head in a sack carried by Babalola.
The suspect was reported to have confessed to the crime, saying the human head was meant for money ritual. He didn’t give details on how they came about the head, but upon further investigation, he revealed that the head was actually meant for a herbalist within the community and that they were only meant to deliver the severed head to him.
Efforts to arrest the herbalist were futile as it seemed he had gotten information about the arrest of the suspect and taken to his heels.
The head of the community, Chief Kasumu Sonola, was said to have commended the FSARS team for their quick response and routine patrol of the area. He complained bitterly of the action of hoodlums and touts within his community. He also went further to complain on how they have been terrorizing the members of the community.
