As we reported earlier, the Oyo State Police Command paraded a self-proclaimed evangelist, Isaiah Alimi, who was caught in possession of a human skull.
The state Police Commissioner, Abiodun Odude, who paraded him at the command headquarters in Eleyele, said Alimi would be charged to court for the crime.
Explaining how he came about the decayed human skull, Alimi said
He claimed that he planned to use the skull to prepare charm to scare robbers away from a land.
He said, “I did not exhume any dead body. I was going to bury it (the skull) on my site around Ijaye in order to scare away robbers who have sacked seven towns in the area. I planned to have another church on the site where I wanted to bury the human skull. I had yet to reach my site when police stopped me and found the skull in my possession.
“I was also caught with other charms. My father was a herbalist and he taught me how to prepare some charms. I did not plan to harm anyone with it or prepare money ritual.”
