Two partners in crime have been arrested in Oyo State for possessing human bones in the house, the suspects, Rasheed Dauda and Ayoade Kehinde, have been arrested in Ibadan, Oyo State for possession of human bones.
Dauda, 41, and Kehinde 32, were apprehended up by the Oluyole Security Surveillance Team in Oluyole Local Government Area after it received information about the bones hidden in the ceiling of Kehinde's house.
Kehinde, who disclosed that the bones were picked from the remains of a female deceased person, however said that he and his partner had yet to decide what to do with them so they kept them in the ceiling of his house.
But Dauda, who admitted sighting the female body under a mango tree with others, denied picking the bones with Kehinde, saying that he never knew that the second suspect went back to where the body was seen.
The OSST Commandant, Olusegun Idowu, who briefed the Nigerian Tribune about the arrest, said that prior to the arrest, the team was informed of how Dauda, who allegedly got drunk in a beer parlour, started boasting that he would soon become rich.
"Community members who heard of the boasting started wondering what he meant. They also noted the stealing of chickens and other farm products in Bare Community," Idowu said.
"It was some of his friends who felt he was making jest of them when they were arrested for stealing chickens that exposed him, saying that what he was involved in was more terrible than what they did."
