'Ritualist asked me to get human skull for N10,000', 72-yr-old says

The long arm of the law has finally caught up with 72-year-old Idris Ajao after he was arrested in Iwo, Osun state in possession of a female human skull.

According to Fimihan Adeoye, the Commissioner of Police in the state, the police has been on the trail of Ajao after they got a hint about his atrocities until he was finally arrested with the skull in his possession.

“He was arrested by policemen deployed around the cemetery following a tip-off,” the CP said.

When questioned, Ajao who claims to be a bricklayer says he regrets his mistake claiming that his herbalist friend Tajudeen Jawesola promised him the sum of N10,000 if he was able to exhume skulls from the grave in the cemetery.

“It was Jawesola that asked me to get the human skull for him. Everybody knows Jawesola to be herbalist and he wanted to use the human skull to do his work. He said he would give me N10, 000. I should not have listened to him. It is a mistake”. Ajao said.

    If it was possible, the federal government would have sent harbalists packing! They cause more atrocities than pastors and imams

    This man is just an old fool who couldn’t use his brain and have his stand. A friend asked you to go get skull for 10k and you can’t refute or raise alarm, he’s really an old idiot
