A native doctor has reportedly been confirmed dead while awaiting the delivery of head and wrists of a female human for ritual purpose.
This however, was discovered after two suspects identified as Wasiu Omonose (35) and Akanbi Ibrahim (32) were arrested by the police after being nabbed with the body parts at Oke Oyi-Jebba road on a motorcycle last week.
A police source told Daily Trust that the operatives investigating the matter discovered that the native doctor had died after visiting his residence in Ilorin.
“The herbalist was dead by the time operatives got to his house with the suspects for further investigation.
“During investigation, one of the suspects earlier told the officers that by the time he went to pick up the head and the hands, he called the herbalist but the phone was picked by one of his family members who broke the news of his death.
“It was while they were going in a tricycle which operator was unaware of the contents in their bag that they were caught.”
