An 80-year-old man, Ganiyu Oladosu, has been arrested for allegedly being in possession of human body parts in Osun state. The suspect is a prince from the Sooko ruling house in the town.
He was arrested at his house in the Idifa located at Ile-Eesu compound in Gbongan and later transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department, CID, in Osgogbo.
“I want to appeal to the state government and the police to handle this matter properly and without delay. People of this town want justice to be done. The perpetrators must be punished according to the law.
“Failure to punish him appropriately through the necessary state mechanisms might attract the anger of the people who had wanted to kill him before we persuaded them to release the suspect to the police just to avoid jungle justice.”
