Mudashiru confessed to our correspondent that he and the second suspect paid N12,000 for the human parts.

He, however, denied that they were ritual killers, saying they were looking for how to get quick money.

“We bought all the human parts for N12,000. We are not ritual killers. We want to get quick money by using the parts.”

On his own part, Aremu said, “I am a farmer and a herbalist, I am not a ritual killer.”

He said he had been in the business for almost 20 years, adding that the charms and other items were found on them were meant to help people.

He said he had once told Shodipo to bring human skulls for ritual purposes, which he (Shodipo) did.

Also paraded alongside the suspected ritual killers were two suspected armed robbers, Michael Uko and Tope Adegoke.

They were said to have robbed a victim and made away with his ATM card. They allegedly inflicted machete cuts on him and forcefully got his pin number, after which they withdrew N100,000 from his account. Read also: Evans plans to escape from prison, offers police $100, 000 bribe
