The suspects were arrested for being in possession of human parts.
The police in Lagos have arrested two citizens of the Republic of Benin for being in possession of human parts.
One of the suspects, Djassau Gerard was caught trying to enter Nigeria with a human skull.
He confessed and led police to his accomplice, Sessou Djiman, a native doctor at Owode area of Ogun State.
“There is nothing wrong in one going about with human parts in our country. In fact, when someone is believed to have been struck dead by thunder, the body will not be buried, because it is a taboo.
The corpse will be taken to the home of a traditionalist. The traditionalist or native doctor keeps the corpse, allows it to decompose and then dries it.
Thereafter, anybody who is interested in any of the parts will come for it without any payment,”
“It was through a native doctor that I met Djiman and discovered that he has more powers. I returned to Nigeria to meet him for more power,”
The skull was found hidden in a bag by the police during a routine stop and search operation.
