Police Arrest 80-Year-Old Man With Body Parts


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.

 Adetoyese Oyeniyi, the monarch of the town, has urged the police to conduct a thorough and ensure proper prosecution of the suspect.
 “Gbongan is a very peaceful town. The disturbing case of one Ganiyu Oladosu from Sooko ruling family that was caught human parts is very unfortunate as it is contrary to our way of life here,” he said.

“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.”
