I pay N2,500 for human parts, says Moslem cleric
The Oyo State police command yesterday paraded a Moslem cleric, a pastor and two others for selling human parts for money rituals. The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, told newsmen that Alfa Sulaiman Hamed, 35, and the others were arrested at Ayegun area of Ibadan.
Alfa Hamed was said to have presided over the Fidau prayer for a deceased but later contracted two accomplices to exhume the body because he needed some of the body parts for money ritual.
The two accomplices, Olapade Saheed, 32, and Olatunji Abiodun, 26, were later caught with the deceased head and other human parts, leading to the arrest of Hamed and Tope Akinyele, 45, who claimed to be the presiding pastor of a church in Ojagbo, Oranyan area of Ibadan.
Hamed said he normally pay N2,500 for human flesh which he use in making money charm for his clients. “I gave N2,500 to them (Saheed and Abiodun) to help me find human flesh. Someone introduced them to me and told me that there was a way they execute their work.
“At about 10:00p.m. I took them to a grave where a body that was brought from Warri, Delta State was buried. I took part in the prayers offered for the deceased before he was buried. In the early hours of the second day, they came to me and gave me a cellophane bag, I did not check what was inside but I hanged it on the wall of my house. I was on my way to my office when I saw them in the middle of a crowd with a human head. In this case, the charm I wanted to use was for myself. I did not ask them to cut off the head and it was not in my possession when the police came.”
In his statement, Saheed said the Alfa paid them only N1,500 to do the job and that he took them to the grave of the deceased.
