Two cemetery guards have been caught in possession of human head on Sunday, January 17 in Ondo town.
According to report, one of the guards, identified only as Alhaji was allegedly caught by residents with a bag containing one of the heads.
The guards work with a cemetery owned by a religious body in the town.
According to Vanguard, a source revealed, “Very early today (Sunday) somebody went to defecate in a bush beside the cemetery and he saw Alhaji with a sledgehammer and he broke one of the tombs in the cemetery.
“After some minutes he came out with a bag. So the person that saw him raised the alarm and we rushed to the scene. When we checked the bag Alhaji carried, we saw a human head in the bag.
“When we went around the cemetery, we discovered that about 44 tombs have no dead bodies inside them, they have been exhumed by ritualists. So we have handed them over to the Amotekun cops.”
The state Commandant of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye who confirmed the arrest of the suspects said no human heads were found on the suspects as at the time of their arrest.
He said,”Our personnel who were invited rescued them when the residents were about lynching them.”
“The suspects were rescued by our men when the residents were about to kill them. We have handed them over to the police,” he explained.
However, the state Police spokesperson Tee- Leo Ikoro said the suspects were yet to be handed over to them.
