A cemetery vault builder Kazim Olarewaju who works at Okesuna Cemetery in Adeniji Adele area of Lagos island has revealed that he sold two human skulls for N12,000.
Olarewaju who was arrested by policemen attached to Adeniji Adele Division, Lagos State Police Command alongside two other suspects: Muritala Salami and Amidu Kazeem explained that this was the second time he was trading in human parts.
Narrating how he got involved in the act, Kazim Olarenwaju said “I work at Okesuna cemetery on September mr Murtala Salami and his relatives came to the cemetery to bury a relative after the burial he said I should help get biscuit. I told him I don’t know what that is.
He said it was a human skull.” Immediately I told him I can’t. He collected my number and left but continued to call me till I bulged.
Initially, I asked him to come to the cemetery and take it himself when he came and I helped him to take the bag outside the cemetery gate so that the security won’t suspect anything. The first time he paid me 12,000 for the two skulls.”
Last week he called me again I told him to stay clear but he kept threatening me till I agreed to help him get two human skulls. It was while I was taking delivery of his order that I was arrested by the police.”
Explaining further, Kasim said “I started working at the cemetery two years ago and I have never been involved in a thing like this before I met Muritala.
