Lagos Street Manager nabbed with 3 human skulls in Ilorin


The police in Kwara State have taken into custody a 32-year-old man, identified as Suleiman Adenifuja after three human skulls were found in his possession on Wednesday.
Adenifuja, who claimed to be a staff of street managers (LAWMA staff) in Lagos, as well as a Taylor when he is not cleaning the roads, was picked up along Ogbomosho-Eiyekorin Area, Ilorin, on March 26, following a routine stop and search activity by the police.
According to the Police, the father of two who had been dubbed a ritualist was taken the exhibits to an Islamic cleric for spiritual purpose.
Adenifuja, however said he did not have any sinister motive, but just needed the services of the ‘alfa’ to attract more customers to his struggling Tailoring business.
The suspect added that a friend, connected him to the Islamic cleric.
“I am a tailor, but I also work with the Lagos State Government as a street sweeper from 11pm to 2am. While I was working one night, I saw a bag containing these things (the skulls).
“I initially wanted to drop the bag, but someone told me that the skulls could be used for some things. I contacted one of the boys that we usually talk together, named Saheed, and he gave me the Alfa’s phone number. .
.“When I called the Alfa, he told me to come to Ilorin. I have never been to Ilorin before, but he asked me to alight at a particular place where he would come to pick me.”
.“He had earlier asked me what I wanted to do with the items and I told him that I wanted what would bring more people to my shop: he told a Punch correspondent.”
The three skulls wrapped in a sack were recovered from a black bag belonging to Ajenifuja, when a Federal Highway Patrol Team of the Kwara State command, intercepted a commercial vehicle conveying seven passengers en route to Ilorin from Lagos.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Lawan Ado, disclosing this while parading the suspect said he would be charged to court soon.
