A 28-year-old herbalist has been arrested for allegedly stealing a female corpse’s head and intestines at the Muslim Cemetery, Oke Yidi, in Ede, Osun State.
Ismail Adewuyi was arrested on Saturday, September 17, by men of the Nigeria Hunters and Forest Security Service.
Adewuyi, armed with charms, stormed the cemetery in the early hours of Saturday. He then exhumed a corpse, cut the head, and brought out its intestines.
However, a member of the hunters’ service, who considered Adewuyi’s movement to be suspicious, accosted him as he was exiting the cemetery.
The hunters found the severed corpse’s head and intestines in Adewuyi’s possession and handed him over to the police.
An investigation is ongoing.
