The police in Ekiti State have arrested two brothers, David Oluwatosin and Tosin Oluwatosin, with a fresh human head.
The police said the brothers, suspected to be ritualists, were arrested at Ifaki-Ekiti in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of the state.
The Public Relations Officer of the Ekiti State Police command, Mr Alberto Adeyemi, however, said that David was at large.
This followed the tension created in the state with beheadings reported in Itaji, Omu communities in Oye Lical Government Area of Ekiti State recently.
According to Adeyemi, Tosin Oluwatosin was arrested with the fresh head in Ifaki on Tuesday.
He said that the suspect was arrested at about 3:35pm following an action by the police based on an intelligence report, adding that it was true that one of the suspects was on the run.
“The victim was about 12 years old but we are still looking for the body. We are also on the trail of the one at large. After investigation, the suspects would be charged to court,” Adeyemi stated.
Adeyemi, who decried the cases of beheading in the state, said the police would also investigate if the two brothers had a hand in the two cases of beheading earlier recorded in the state.
