The police in Ogun State have arrested four men for allegedly being in possession of a human skull.

A statement by the command's spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said a police patrol team from Agbara division had arrested one Teslim Ayeniromo, aged 45 and Sunday Kolade, 35, with a human skull found in a sack in their possession.

According to him, the duo upon interrogation said the human skull was given to them by one Micheal Osanyinbi for delivery to a cleric.

Oyeyemi added that the two suspects' confession led to the arrest of the cleric, Jamiu Olasheu, who admitted that the skull was needed for a ritual.

"The cleric has made confessional statement that he actually requested for the skull which Micheal Osanyinbi promised to get for him at the rate of N25,000 and N1,000 for the bike man who will deliver it to him. He said the skull was needed for a yet to be disclosed ritual," he said.
