A ritualist cooling off at Elewe-Eran Police Command, Abeokuta confessed to a crime he committed when he sold parts of 17 year old girl, a hawker, Taye Gusinu for N8,500 to a herbalist.
The 35 year old Yewunu Tanlaju killed the victim in Idosemo, in Ipokia Local Government Area of Ogun State. He confessed that he seized the puff puff hawker from the back in an isolated area, tied her with rope and slaughtered her
The suspect was paraded with two accomplices, a herbalist, Olusoji Asamo and Joyi Suru.
Tanlaju said Taye was not the first victim he had killed. He said he had earlier killed a 40-year-old woman whose body parts he sold for N10,000.
He said, â€œIt was this man (Olusoji Asamo) who told me to bring human parts. It was at that time I saw the girl selling puff puff in one school. I called her and bought puff pufffrom her.
â€œWhen she finished selling, she was going, I seized her from behind and tied her down and I slaughtered her myself. She attempted shouting but I blocked her mouth.
â€œThis is the second time I am killing, it was in the same area but I was not caught then, it was the same Olusoji who requested for human parts then, although I didnâ€™t know what he wanted to use them for.
â€œWhen I delivered the parts, he gave me N8,500 because we havenâ€™t agreed on any amount but it was N10,000 he gave me when I delivered the first parts.â€
Asamo confessed that the body parts were brought to him immediately the crime was committed, he, however, denied giving out the contract.
The State Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, while parading the suspects said they were arrested after a complaint by the father of the victim, Jimoh Gusinu.
He said the arrest was successful with the collaboration of the Ogun State Command of â€˜Vigilante Service of Nigeriaâ€™.
The father of the deceased, who was visibly angry while speaking with journalists, demanded justice and warned that under no guise must the suspects be freed.
He said, â€œThe government must also kill them, they are from Tube and I am from Ijofin, we ply the same road and I canâ€™t afford to see police releasing them and I set my eyes on them again.
â€œIf I set my eyes on them, I will not be happy and I will attack them with whatever I can get, the full weight of the law must be allowed to take its course.â€
