The Oyo State Police Command has arrested suspects believed to have been linked to roasting and consuming the flesh of burnt policemen in Ibadan during the SARS protest.
Police spokesman at Oyo State Command, SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, told Ibadan in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency (NAN).
Fadeyi added that the suspects, a 34-year-old pregnant woman and a 43-year-old man were transferred to the force’s intelligence office at the force’s headquarters in Abuja for further investigation.
The 34-year-old allegedly ate body parts from one of the police victims, an allegation she denied.
According to her, while it was true that she was at the scene, she was only given body parts to be kept by the second suspect, the 43-year-old man.
The 43-year-old suspect also did not deny being at the scene of the incident with other thugs, but revealed that it was the woman who purposely took the body parts and only asked him to a towel or handkerchief to wrap them around.
The deceased police were deployed to contain the End SARS protest in October, which was hijacked by thugs, when they met their deaths, reports NAN.
