The police in Lagos have arrested a man found with a decomposing woman human head at Imota, near Ikorodu, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
Sources at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, told NAN in Lagos that the suspect, simply identified as Emmanuel, was arrested at the home of a native doctor who is now at large.
NAN gathered that neighbours had reported to the police in Imota that a foul smell was emanating from the compound of the native doctor, identified as Jamiu.
“Policemen attached to the division invaded the place, combed the surrounding and discovered a human head.
“Jamiu, the native doctor, however, took to his heels when challenged but Emmanuel was arrested and he confessed that Jamiu helped him to get the human head for protection against Badoo cult group,” a police source said.
The police were on the trail of the native doctor while Emmanuel would be charged to court soon, the source told NAN.
Also, the State CID has also arrested a man for killing another man by stabbing him in the chest during a fight at a bar in Egbeda area of Lagos.
