The Ogun state police command have arrested a bricklayer and a herbalist, Kunle Adewunmi, and his two accomplices for attempting to steal human parts from the graves inside the Methodist Church grave in Ogbe community in Abeokuta, the state capital.
According to reports, Adewunmi and his accomplices were arrested last Saturday shortly after a female member of the Odua People’s Congress (OPC), raised alarm after she caught the men digging the grave. Adewunmi is the bricklayer usually hired by the church to plaster graves after burial of bodies at the graveyard.
‘’The bricklayer is very known to the church members. He is the one usually contracted to plaster tombs inside the cemetery and took advantage of that to carry out his nefarious act at the cemetery.’’ a member f the church said
Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to supplying the human parts to a trader at the Itoku market in the state.
The trio have since been charged to court.
