Police parade herbalist, 2 others for trading in human parts
The herbalist says he prepares concoction for stroke patients with human skulls.
The suspects include -a herbalist, Olawale Shodolamu, 70; a gravedigger, Seun Falana; and a human parts buyer, Dauda Tijani.
Odumosu said Tijani was on his way to deliver a human skull to the herbalist, when policemen intercepted him and found the skull in his possession.
“He confessed that he was sent by the herbalist, Olawale Shodolamu, 70. The herbalist was also arrested and he claimed that he bought the human skull from one Seun Falana, 37, an employee of the Trinity Cemetery in Ajegunle, Lagos, for N10,000. The third suspect was equally arrested,” Odumosu stated.
When asked why he ventured into selling human parts, Falana said, “I am a contract worker at the cemetery and they usually pay me N2,000 for each grave I dig. One day, this man (Tijani) came to me and said he needed a skull to treat his leg and I agreed to get it for him.
“My boss gave me a job to do that day and when I started digging the ground, I saw a skull, so I called him to come and pick it. I sold it to him for N10,000.”
The herbalist who was also paraded, confessed that he uses human skull to prepare concoction for stroke patients.
Shodolamu said none of his patients knew that human skulls were being used for the concoction he gave them.
“I use skulls to prepare concoction for stroke patients and I have cured about 50 stroke patients with the concoction. The patients usually drink and bathe with the concoction but none of them knew that I use human skulls,” Punch quoted the 70-year-old as saying.
The herbalist added that he buys human skulls for N20,000 each , and had patronised Tijani on two separate occasions.
