The Lagos State Police Command has arrested one Kayode Abdul-Fatai, an Islamic cleric based in the Alakuko area of Lagos state, for being in possession of human parts, including a female heart and lap.
A statement from the command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Chike Oti, confirmed the arrest on Tuesday, saying the arrest followed a tip-off.
Oti said the suspect was arrested at 4, Okedumola street, off Obadare area of Alakuko.

According to Oti, the suspect and the accomplice would be charged to court at the end of investigation.
”The CP urges members of the public to embark on ‘Operation Know Your Neighbour’ because the Alfa was staying in a compound without his neighbours knowing what he does for a living,” Oti said in a statement.
