Franklin Akinyosuyi, a 26-year-old suspected of involvement in ritualistic activities, has provided an explanation for his practice of bathing daily with a human head.
Akinyosuyi revealed that he acquired the human skull and additional body parts from an herbalist based in Osun State.
During a recent parade of suspects by the Ondo State Police Command, Akinyosuyi disclosed in an interview that he followed the instructions of the herbalist to enhance his struggling photography and boutique business.
In his words, “I work as a photographer and also run a boutique. Last year, my uncle introduced me to an herbalist. I explained my business difficulties to him, and he requested N200,000 to prepare a concoction for me, which I paid within three weeks. He later instructed me to collect the concoction, which I did in November last year.”
Akinyosuyi explained that the herbalist instructed him to bathe with the human head every Thursday at 1 am, believing it would improve his business. However, after using the human head for a month without seeing any improvement, he demanded a refund from the herbalist. The herbalist started refunding his money and had sent N20,000 as part of the refund.
He continued, “I decided to discard the human head, so I left it in my backyard. Unfortunately, while I was away, my landlord’s children found it, informed their father, and subsequently contacted the police.”
Regarding the arrest, the police spokesperson, Funmi Odunlami, confirmed that Akinyosuyi was found in possession of a human skull. Further investigations led to the apprehension of Oyegoke Dare, an evangelist, who had provided the skull and other fetish items to Akinyosuyi. Odunlami added that Oyelade Sarafa, an herbalist, who admitted to obtaining the skull from a vigilante member named Asekun in Ikirun, was also arrested.
Odunlami mentioned that two other suspects linked to the case are currently evading arrest.
