A cleric, Alfa Kayode Abdul-Fatai has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command in the Alakuko area of the state over possession of suspected human parts including a female private part.
A female lap and heart was also discovered in his room.
Confirming the arrest, Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, SP Chike Oti, said the Islamic cleric was arrested following a tip off and investigation by the officers in the command.
Oti said the suspect, during interrogation, revealed that the said human parts were given to him by an accomplice who has also been rounded up.
He said the Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, particularly urged members of the public to be conscious of the activities of people living within their vicinity, and report any suspicious movement to law enforcement agencies.
“The CP urges members of the public to embark on ‘Operation Know Your Neighbour,’ because the Alfa was staying in a compound without his neighbours knowing what he does for a living,” Oti said.
The suspects are to be charged to court at the end of the investigations.
