Odeniyi, a truck driver was arrested in Ondo town motor park by men of the security outfit while conveying the human parts to Lagos.

 

While the state commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye said the suspect killed the victim, removed the human parts and hurriedly buried the corpse, the suspect claimed he exhumed the corpse from a grave and removed the body parts. 

 

Speaking with newsmen, the suspect claimed his former boss in lbadan introduced him to the business of making money through rituals.

 

“I went to the burial ground to cut the legs and hands of one of the corpses buried there. Before I was caught, I had planned to take the human parts to the person that sent me in Lagos. He promised to pay me N30 million once I deliver the items,” he said.

 

“I only went to the burial ground in Sabo area of Ondo town to cut the parts, I didn’t kill anybody and this is my first time. I used to be a trailer driver.

 

“The person that sent me used to be my boss when I used to drive truck. I used to dump it in a waste bin and he will send those who will pick it.”

 

However, the Commander, Chief Adeleye who dismissed the claim of the suspect, said that the suspect killed someone before severing the parts and buried the victim in a shallow grave.

 

“We want to intimate the public on the need to be very careful. Of late, the trend is shifting gradually from daily kidnapping to ritual killings.  The public should be generally careful about the craze to make money by this young men,” Adeleye disclosed.

 

“We have a suspect in our custody, Timothy Odeniyi who was caught and arrested with legs and hands of human being wrapped in paper.

 

“Upon interrogation, he took us to where he severed the body of the person killed and hurriedly buried the person in a shallow grave. He was arrested in Ondo town

 

“We want to warn the public to be careful of who they go out with. We have a number of them that we are still investigating that will go out with their girlfriends solely for the purpose of killing them for ritual purposes. I think the public should be wary and careful about this.”
