Couple Kill Friend, Sell Head For N70,000


An Abeokuta-based couple, Kehinde Oladimeji (43) and his wife Adejumoke Raji (35) who were caught for being in possession of fresh human parts, yesterday, narrated how they carried out the heinous act.

The couple who reside at No 72 MKO Abiola Way, Leme, Abeokuta South LGA of Ogun State, were paraded before newsmen on Monday.

Speaking with newsmen, the husband said his wife solely killed her friend, severed her body and sold the head to a merchant, identified as Oluomo, a resident of Ibadan, Oyo State, at the rate of N70,000.

Oladimeji said, “There was a day my wife invited her friend to our house. She came on a Tuesday and left that day. But the second day she came, it was a Thursday. My wife cooked noodles and eggs for the lady, which she ate. Later, the lady went into the bath and showered.

“When it was getting dark I inquired from my wife when her friend would leave, but my wife said the lady said she was weak and would need to rest. I went and sat at the backyard, and when I returned to the room I realised my wife had killed her friend and dismembered her body.

“Meanwhile, I have a friend in Ibadan, who is popularly known as Omo Baale. He told me he needed a human head. My wife heard the discussion and asked me how much the man would pay for it, I told him and he was ready to pay N70,000. I never knew my wife had made up her mind.”

But the wife denied killing the lady, saying, “I know nothing about it,” and turned to the husband, “Stop framing me up.”

However, she confirmed that her husband’s friend, one Michael, had handed them a sack which they later discovered contained human parts.

The police spokesman in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects were arrested following a report at the Kemta Divisional Headquarters by one Chief Moshood Ogunwolu, the Baale of Leme Community, that one Pastor Adisa Olarewaju who was a co-tenant with the suspects informed him of an offensive odour coming from the room of the suspects.

Mr Oyeyemi said following the complaint detectives were drafted to the scene, and that, “On searching the room, a plastic bowl containing fresh human parts was discovered and the couple were arrested.”
