A 49-year-old suspected ritualist has been caught with the corpse of a baby in the Remo axis of Ogun State.
The suspect was arrested by a team of policemen at Sapade Motor Park while attempting to board a vehicle with the corpse which was wrapped in a polythene bag.
Spokesman of the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said other people at the motor park alerted the Ishara Police Division, following the odour coming from the polythene bag.
Policemen later swooped on the suspect and arrested him with the corpse in the bag.
Oyeyemi explained that the suspects under interrogation told the Police he was on his way from Offa in Kwara State to Lagos, to bury the corpse of the baby.
The state Police Commissioner, Ahmed Ilyasu, has directed the immediate transfer of the suspected ritualist to the homicide unit of the state police command.Please subscribe to our newsletter
