During an interaction with journalists, Kolawole confessed to his crime. He revealed that he had obtained the human head and two hands found with him from a Muslim cleric. He explained, “I have one wife and two children and things are very hard for me in taking good care of them. I met one Waheed, who is also an Islamic cleric at a Maolud. We discussed it and he told me that he knew how to do money rituals that would require the use of human parts.”

Kolawole further stated that he was unsure of how to procure the human parts, but Waheed promised to get them for him. “He later brought the human parts to me at Amuloko where we met early in the morning. I kept it in my office where I often attended to people who needed spiritual assistance,” he added.

The police discovered the human parts during a search of Kolawole’s office. The cleric who provided the parts, however, remains at large.

In related news, nine other suspects were arrested for various crimes, including murder, kidnapping, cultism, and theft, in different locations within the state. These arrests highlight the ongoing efforts of the Oyo State Police to maintain law and order.
