The couple was arrested along with six others, Lukman Oladele, Kayode Ibrahim, Bello Akeem, Alebiosu Adebayo, Fatai Rasheed, and Fatai Jimoh.
The spokesman of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi said this in a statement issued on Thursday night.
Oyeyemi said the suspects were apprehended following a report lodged at Obalende divisional headquarters; Ijebu-Ode by one Ojo Omolara who reported that her neighbour, Oyindamola Adeyemi left home on the morning of Wednesday 28th of December 2022 but didn’t return home and her phone has since then been switched off.
However, since it was not 24 hours, she was advised to come back.
According to him, the following day, 29th of December 2022, while the patrol team from Obalende division was on routine patrol, a dismembered body of a lady was discovered by the roadside and the body was taken to a mortuary.
“Fortunately, the mortuary is a stone thrown distance away from the house of the deceased, and one of the mortuary workers who knew about the missing person called the attention of the deceased family to come and see the body brought by the police,” the police spokesman disclosed.
Oyeyemi disclosed further that on getting there, the deceased friend, Ojo Omolara was able to identify it through the bra and underwear Adeyemi put on since her head was already chopped off.
The police image maker explained that having recognised the body, the DPO Obanlende division, SP MURPHY SALAMI mobilised his crack detectives and embarked on a technical intelligence-based investigation which led to one Taiwo Olutufese Ajalorun, a herbalist in whose possession the deceased Itel phone was recovered.
“He was promptly arrested, and a search warrant was duly executed in his house where a container full of human blood, later discovered to be that of the deceased was recovered,” he revealed.
“His arrest led to the apprehension of his friend, Lukman Oladele whose house the legs of the deceased were also recovered.
“They both made confessional statements which led to the arrest of other suspects who are buyers of different parts of the deceased body.
“Upon interrogation, Taiwo Olutufese Ajalorun and Lukman Oladele confessed that the deceased was lured to the house of Taiwo who happened to be her man friend, but as soon as the victim entered, she was pinned down by both Taiwo Olutufese Ajalorun and Lukman Oladele and the subsequently strangled her to death.
“After killing her, they cut off the head, legs, and two hands, which they sold to thier standby buyers to be used for money-making ritual.
“According to them, the legs of the deceased were sold at the rate of #30,000, while the heart was sold for #50,000 to Hakeem Bello. The person who bought the head is still at large.
“The suspects confessed further that the victim was the third person they had killed in a such gruesome manner.
