Police arrest three suspects with human heart in Osun


Operatives of the Osun State Police Command have arrested three suspects in the state for being in possession of a human heart.

The three suspects were arrested by the police on the Osogbo/Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ife Campus Road, Ile-Ife.

The Osun State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Yemisi Opalola, made this known in a statement on Saturday.

Opalola said two of the suspects were 21 years old, while the third suspect was 25 years.

The police spokesperson stated: “The Osun Police Command, in its efforts to sanitise the state of incessant ritual killings and other vices, has arrested three young men.

“On April 7, at 11a.m., detectives on ‘Stop-and-Search’ duty accosted three men on a motorcycle on the Osogbo/OAU Ife Campus Road.

“They were flagged down, but rather than stop, they sped off and were pursued by the police team.

“They were eventually arrested at Safejo Area of Ile-Ife, and a human heart, which they claimed belonged to one of their friends, and various charms were found on them.

“As investigation was going on, one of the suspects took ill and died while on hospital admission. The corpse has been deposited at the state hospital for autopsy.

“The two other suspects will be charged in court upon conclusion of investigation.”
