The sleepy communities of Aseese and Sowo in Ofada/Mokoloki LCDA of Ogun State were on Thursday thrown into confusion when Federal Special Anti+Robbery Squad on Thursday arrested a man, Babalola Alex, with a human head.
One account said policemen attached to the squad were on routine patrol of the community when they noticed a man walking by the side of the road with a bag from which blood was reportedly dripping.
The police challenged him on the contents of the bag and it was discovered to be a freshly cut human head.
Another account said the policemen were tipped off by a resident, who told them that.he saw two men in an undeveloped plot with a human head when he went to defecate..
The policemen then laid in wait for both men and apprehended Wale while his suspected accomplice, Ijebu, escaped.
Then then took him to his house in neighbouring Sowo community for a search.
The development caused a huge uproar in both communities as people wondered why anyone would indulge in such an act.
Spokesman for the state command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the development, saying the policemen acted on the tip and went in search of the suspects.
He said the policemen found the human head in a sack and upon interrogation, Wale said a native doctor asked them to bring it for money-making rituals.
