Osifeso said the Police received credible intelligence from residents of Ayekale, Saki area of Oyo State at about 2:30pm on Monday alleging that Wasiu, 29, and Shittu, were found in possession of a fresh human head.
He said: “Oyo State Police Command attached to Saki Divisional Police Headquarters immediately swung into action which resulted in the arrest of the duo, the recovery of the fresh human head and the dismembered body of the victim who has been identified to be one Mujidat ‘f’
“Preliminary investigation reveals that the victim was lured from Lagos through a phone call by one of the suspects, particularly Ismaila Wasiu before the perpetration of the dastardly act.
