I Begin Selling Human Skulls To Save My Sick Mother – Suspected Ritualist

Ondo State police detectives in Akure arrested Yusuf Adinohi, a 37-year-old alleged ritualist, for possessing eight human skulls.
According to Naija News, Adinohi was arrested by security agents at 11 a.m. at the Agbasi Locust checkpoint in the Ase region of Isua Akoko, Ondo state.

The guy, who confessed to beginning a business selling human skulls to save his sick mother, was captured while traveling from Okene in Kogi State to Osogbo in Osun State.

A team of security operatives in the state reportedly intercepted a commercial vehicle bearing the registration number LKJ 148 AJ, piloted by Kabiru Abubakar and carrying four passengers.

In an interview with journalists at Akure police headquarters, the suspect stated that he sold seven human skulls for N35,000 apiece and earned N245,000 from the illegal activity.

The statement reads, “Upon questioning, the suspect admitted to owning the eight dried skulls and stated that he was traveling to Osogbo to give the human skulls to another herbalist.

“According to him, this will be my third time in this industry. I sold four human skulls on my first trip, three on my second, and eight on my most recent.

“I normally buy the skull from my friend Ismaila, who collects them from burial grounds. Before I started this business, I was purchasing and selling palm oil and cashew nuts, but it wasn’t making me much money.
My mother has been ill; we took her to a hospital in Lokoja, and the doctor told us we needed N2 million for her treatment. So I had no choice but to go into the skull business. My objective was to leave the company once I had enough money to pay my mother’s medical expenditures.

So far, I’ve made N245,000 from the seven items I’ve sold. I actually sold them to several persons. I met the buyers on Facebook. He informed me he’s a herbalist.”

Abayomi Oladipo, the state police commissioner, stated that the suspect was detained during stop and search security operations at Isua Akoko.
The suspect further admitted that the human skulls were regularly handed over to him by one Imaila who lives in Oboroke, Okene, and that each head is sold for between N30,000 and N35,000.

Oladipo stated that the suspect would be transferred to the State Criminal inquiry Department (SCID) for further inquiry.
