THE Nigeria Police Command, Edo State Chapter have arrested a woman simply identified as Mrs Josephine Adun for allegedly selling a human skull in Benin City, the state capital.

According to reports, the mother of four, while being paraded by the State Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, said she regretted her actions and advised other women not to get involved in crime.

According to her, “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 as a reward. I have learnt my lessons.”

Speaking on her level of involvement, the divorcee said she bought a human skull for #8,000 from a cemetery worker and sold it for #40,000 to Charity Goodluck, who approached her for a skull.

The suspect, who dealt in traditional items, said Goodluck gifted her an extra #5,000 for a good job.

While 29-year-old Goodluck, 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.
