Amotekun operatives in Oyo State have arrested a suspected dealer in human parts, Mutiu Abdul-Rasheed.
The 40 year old man was reportedly caught and paraded with fresh human hands and other body parts, which were paraded as exhibits, in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.
Abdul-Rasheed said they exhume bodies of people. He said further that he belonged to a syndicate that sources fresh human parts for their customers.
Commandant of Amotekun Corps in the state, Col Olayinka Olayanju (retd) told journalists that the suspect was on surveillance for some months before he was apprehended.
He said some unnamed individuals have been “mounting pressure on him to release the suspect.”
Abdul-Rasheed 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.”
Items met in possession of the suspect included guns, charms, decaying body parts, motorcycles and a car.
