P.M.EXPRESS reports that dismembered human parts were discovered inside the tunnel at School Bus Stop in Orile, which caused serious tension in the area.

So far, two suspects, alleged to be ritualists, were said to have been found with human parts. One of them, whose identity could not be ascertained, was burnt to death by a mob.

The second suspect, however, escaped the same fate as he was rescued by Policemen attached to Orile Division.

Lagosians from different parts of the state have been thronging the scene since Wednesday to have a sight of the tunnel.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumiyiwa Adejobi, condemned the jungle justice on the suspect.
Though he confirmed that clothing were recovered inside the tunnel, he noted that no human part was found on the suspect that was rescued by the Police.
CSP Adejobi identified the suspect found in the tunnel, who is with the Lagos Police, as Kayode Ojo, 50, from Akoko, Ondo State, without a fixed address.

He said: “He was arrested at the scene and brought to us by 12.30pm on Wednesday.  They alleged he was a ritualist and was found with a human skull. But we did not find him in possession of any human parts”.


“In the process of making preliminary findings from him, reports reached us that another man found there was lynched and set ablaze. They said he was also found in possession of a human heart.”


“The suspect with us will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department to ascertain whether what was found with him were actually human parts. We are going to conduct a scientific investigation.”


“The Command condemns jungle justice. We appeal to residents of the area to allow the Police to carry out investigation on the matter.”
“Clothes were found in the tunnel. We are going to carry out a thorough investigation to ascertain the true account of the matter.”
