There was chaos after a man was apprehended in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, for having a human skeleton in his possession. It was gathered that the suspect, a car wash attendant identified as Ismaila Raji was nabbed by residents last week while he was trying to offload a dried corpse in a nearby bush in the vicinity.
The attendant confessed to killing seven people, including pupils of Lagelu Grammar School, Ibadan whose bodies he dried with chemicals.
Raji was arrested at Olorunsogo while trying to dispose the body of his latest victim, Rasaki Musibau, who he allegedly strangled inside the deceased’s home.
“I am from Molete Bode in Ibadan. I was arrested at Olorunsogo for killing someone.
“I have killed seven other people so far and they are mostly students of Lagelu Grammar School. I was offered N500,000 by a bakery owner to be killing people.”
“My colleagues and I usually sat around the school’s premises. That is where we usually capture our victims. My accomplices are barbers at Aremo Koloko,” the suspect said.
He was said to have been handed over to the police after a mob gave him severe beating.
Confirming the arrest to newsmen, spokesman for Oyo Police Command Lawrence Fadeyi, however, said he was yet to be given details.
