While disclosing that he had been in the trade since 2021, Babalola revealed that they carry out their operations within the town and neighbouring states.

According to him, ”I have killed five people including my cousin and my friend, and snatched their motorcycles. I killed Opeyemi who is my friend, and sold the motorcycle to a man in Ibadan called Taoheed. I do not sell human parts, but I took part of one of my victims’ bodies to an herbalist in Ondo who promised to give me an Ifa Oracle.

“At the point where we snatched motorcycles, anyone who struggled with me in the process got hit on the head with a fat stone and a stick.”

Another suspect, Quadri Lawal and his cohorts confessed that he cut off one of his victim’s heads into two, one part for his colleague, and kept the other for ritual purposes.

The 35-year-old man while recounting the events, said, “While hunting in the bush, I stumbled upon the lifeless body of a woman, which I then informed Oluawo about.”

He continued, “Oluawo requested that I extract certain body parts, which I complied with by cutting off a portion of the human head. One part was kept in my residence, while the other was handed over to Oluawo as requested.”

Lawal further said they used and turned the head into black soap for people, for different purposes mainly for money making.
