After selling Human Skull in Benin, Edo State, Mrs Josephine Adun lamented her Action while requesting other Nigerians willing to venture into such business to have a rethink.
This was her submission to pressmen while being paraded by the Edo state Police command alongside other suspects.
“I want to use this medium to advise other women and mothers not to sell human parts to anybody or engage in crime no matter how much you are promised a reward. I have learnt my lessons,” she said.
The divorcee, while speaking on her level of involvement, said one Charity Goodluck approached her for a human skull, which she sold to him for N40,000.
She said she bought the skull for N8,000 from a cemetery worker.
The suspect, who dealt in traditional items, said for a good job, Goodluck gifted her an extra N5,000.
She said she sold the skull to Goodluck in February, adding that she was arrested in May 2022.
On his part, Goodluck, 29, a heavy-duty operator, said a herbalist told him to bring the skull to enable him to become more prosperous in his business.
The herbalist, Olusola Oyowokemi, said Goodluck approached him and that he needed soap and he advised him to get a skull for a ritual.
The 42-year-old herbalist said two months later, Goodluck came to him with the skull, which he used for the ritual.
The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, assured us that the command would not allow criminal elements to take over the state.
