Man caught with human skulls thinks police has no right to arrest him

A suspected cultist who was found two human skulls claims he has used them to cure different illness.

He claims the remains were given to him by his father who practiced traditional medicine.

Independent Nigeria News confirmed that Bassey was nabbed at his residence while preparing for an outing. It seemed an unjust arrest for him.

“The skulls were given to me by my late father to continue with the traditional medicines which he used to practice to cure people.

"I am a herbalist and I heal people of different sickness. I have my license to operate as a herbalist. Somebody ran in front of my house and the Police came to my house to arrest me."They have no right because I have been using these skulls for my jobs since my father left it for me some eight years ago,” explains Otu Edem Bassey while speaking to reporters.

The Cross River State police commissioner Hafiz Mohammed Inuwa is aware Bassey has been arrested by his men.

He confirmed that the suspect who was picked up by the Anti-Cultism/kidnapping unit of the police force was preparing charms when the security personnel badged into his apartment.

Others who were with him when the police arrived reportedly escaped being captured.
