An 80-year-old man, Lamidi Abioye, has been arrested by the Osun State Police Command after decomposing headless and decapitated bodies were found in three shallow graves in his compound in Gbongan town, Ayedaade Local Government Area of the state.

The discovery was reportedly made on Monday, at about 5:00p.m., after a resident of Idi-Ifa area of Gbongan town reported at Gbongan police station that an offensive odour was perceived from the suspect’s compound.

Metro learnt that based on the report, a team from the police station went to Pa Abioye’s house and, after combing the compound, discovered the shallow graves in which the decomposing headless bodies were found.

Aside the heads of the bodies that were missing, other body parts such as intestines, liver and heart were reported to have been removed also.

One of the bodies suspected to be that of a female through her genitals had the breasts cut off, it was said.

Information gathered by NigeriaTribune revealed that the suspect, who claimed to be a farmer and herbalist, had his work place at Ile Eesu Oke Ode area of the town while he buried his victims in the house at Idi-Ifa area.

Metro gathered that police detectives with the Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Folasade Odoro, were at the scene on Tuesday for further assessment and investigations.

During interrogation, the suspect was said to have disclosed that one of the victims, a 15-year-old boy, had psychiatric problem and was brought to him from Abeokuta, Ogun State, by his father for healing.

He was said to have disclosed that the boy died on June 19, after which he buried him without informing his father.

A reliable police source said that remaining parts of the decapitated body of the boy looked like that of a mannequin made hollow without head, intestines and other parts.

The intestines were reportedly found inside his house preserved with gin.

Residents of the area had told the police that they noticed a car which came to the suspect’s house on Monday, raising the suspicion that it could belong to one of the buyers of the missing body parts.

Pa Abioye was said to have worked in a bakery at Abeokuta before relocating to Gbogan.

This development came barely 13 days after a 38-year-old man, Ajibade Rasheed and Isiaka Akande Olorungbebe (45), were arrested by police in Osogbo with fresh human head, two palms, intestines and other body parts.

When contacted, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Fimihan Adeoye, lauded the vigilance of the resident who gave the hint to the police, adding that people should be observant of their environment so that they would quickly notice strange happenings around them.
