Abiodun, a secondary school leaver, said Mubarak, a motor boy, had called him in the evening of October 22 to follow him to his girlfriend’s house at the Alabata area.

He said as they were going, they got to the scene where the two policemen had been burnt and saw people severing their body parts.

He said:

“At the area, we found two already burnt heads that had been severed and Aliu said we could sell them to a herbalist. I initially resisted but he said there would be no problem, and that was how we took the heads in a polythene bag to the herbalist.”

While also confessing, Mubarak said after taking the heads, they took them to a herbalist residing in his area and he explained to him that they were the heads of policemen burnt at the Iwo Road area earlier in the day.
