Men of the Kwara State Police Command have arrested two suspected dealers in human parts in Ilorin.
The suspects were arrested in the capital city on Thursday for allegedly attempting to cart away parts of decomposed corpses of people from their graves for sale to spiritualists.
The suspects were caught by residents around Ajia compound in Gambari area of the town and handed over to the police
The suspects allegedly seized the opportunity of the on-going road construction between Bolanta junction and Gambari road in the area to embark on the utterly odious act.
The road construction reportedly affected some graves in Ajia compound which were said to have been exhumed by the suspects apparently for reburial elsewhere.
Confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer of the state, Olufemi Fabode said the police were still investigating the matter, as the two suspects feigned ignorance of the offence they allegedly committed.
