A 26-year-old suspect, Franklin Akinyosuyi, who was arrested a few days ago in Ondo State for possession of a human skull, has revealed that he used to rub the skull with “black soap” for his bath.
the suspect was found in possession of a human skull and has admitted to using it in conjunction with “black soap” for his bathing routine.
Akinyosuyi, believed to be involved in online fraud and operating both a photography business and a boutique, has confessed to resorting to rituals in an attempt to revive his struggling business.
Presented before the state police command, the suspect disclosed that he acquired the human skull and other fetish objects from a herbalist situated in Ikirun, Osun State, in exchange for a payment of N200,000.
It is recalled that Akinyosuyi’s arrest occurred after the discovery of the human skull in his residence within the Elewuro area of Ondo town, specifically in the Ondo West Local Government Area. Acknowledging his involvement, he revealed that he had employed the items for a period of one month, during which his business did not experience the anticipated growth. He intended to dispose of the materials but was apprehended prior to doing so.
In his statement, he mentioned, “I work as a photographer and I also manage a boutique. Last year, my uncle introduced me to a herbalist. Faced with the underperformance of my business, I sought his assistance. He required a payment of N200,000 for a concoction, which I paid within three weeks.”
Continuing, he recounted, “Upon completion, he instructed me to collect the mixture in November. His directive was for me to use the human head during my bath every Thursday at 1 am. I adhered to this routine for a month but saw no improvement in my business. Consequently, I contacted the herbalist, requesting a refund.”
The state’s police spokesperson, SP Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, provided additional details about the case. She disclosed that two more individuals connected to the incident were apprehended: an evangelist identified as Oyegoke Dare, who provided the human skull and other ritualistic items to the suspect, and an herbalist named Oyelade Sarafa, who admitted to helping procure the skull from an individual referred to as Asekun, a member of a local vigilante group in Ikirun. Authorities are currently pursuing two other suspects implicated in the case who remain at large.
