Siblings behead 10-year-old boy in Lagos

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested two siblings, Ayodeji Obadimeji (18) and Saheed Obadimeji (19) with a “fresh” human head.

The head was said to be that of a 10-year-old boy, Joseph Makinde.

The suspects had allegedly lured the victim into buying them a drink before cutting off his head.

They were allegedly contracted by one Sodiq Abefe, who promised to pay them N200,000 for a human head.

The police spokesperson, CSP Chike Oti, who confirmed the incident, said the suspects were arrested on Tuesday on Tunde Balogun Street, Shapati, Ibeju-Lekki.

The suspects were reportedly arrested around 10.30pm by a team of anti-kidnapping personnel on a routine patrol between Ajah/Epe Expressway.

“On interrogation, they confessed that one Sodiq Abefe contracted them to provide him with a human head at the cost of N200,000, hence they lured the victim by sending him to buy a soft drink for them and when he brought the drink to them, they held him and cut off his head with a knife.

“The victim was identified by his parents as Joseph Makinde, aged 10 years.

“His torso was recovered from an uncompleted building at Shapati and effort is being made to arrest the said Sodiq Abefe who allegedly contracted the duo to commit the heinous crime,” Oti added.

The police spokesperson said the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohini, had directed that the case be handed over to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation And Intelligence Department, Yaba, for further investigation.
