The Ogun police command said it had arrested four persons for allegedly being in possession of human skull.
Mr Abimbola Oyeyemi, the State Police Public Relations Officer, disclosed this in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Monday.
Oyeyemi explained that the suspects were arrested on Thursday.
The suspects were Muyideen Tolubi, Niyi Folorunso, Sonubi Taiwo and Remilekun Folorunso.
He said that they were arrested following an information received by the police in Odogbolu division that some people were digging a grave with the aim of removing already buried corpse who was not in anyway related to them.
He said that the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Odogbolu division, Afolabi Yusuf led his detectives to the scene but the suspects had already removed the head of the corpse and left.
“The police then embarked on an intelligence based investigation which led to the arrest of the couple, Niyi and Remilekun Folorunso as well as Muyideen Tolubi.
“The three of them confessed being the persons that dug the grave and removed the head of the corpse. They later took detectives to Ikenne where the fourth person who asked them to bring the head for ritual purpose was apprehended,” he said.
He noted that the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
