A suspected human parts dealer, Mutius Abdul-Rasheed, has been arrested by operatives of the Oyo State Security Network popularly referred to as Amotekun
The 40-year-old when interrogated said he is part of a syndicate that exhumes the corpse of deceased persons and sells their vital organs to prospective buyers.
Abdul-Rasheed who was paraded with some of the human parts said;
‘We only exhume bodies that are known to us because we must know the dead person when he or she was alive.
We must also know his or her name as well as the mother’s name.
Knowing the mother’s name of the dead person that we want to sell the body parts attracts extra cost from those that buy the human parts from us.”
Commandant of Amotekun Corps in the state, Col Olayinka Olayanju (retd), while parading the suspect, said items recovered from the suspect included guns, charms, decaying body parts, motorcycles, and a car.
Olayanju said unnamed individuals have been “mounting pressure on him to release the suspect.”
