Prophet Emmanuel Adeyemi was arrested alongside his first wife on Friday, buried some dead persons in the swamps and three others at his residence.
Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni who confirmed the allegation said the place
was raided following a tip-off that the suspect traded human parts to ritualists.
The commissioner also revealed that
“When we asked him of their identities he said it was some of his patients that were brought to his home from the hospital, after they were given up for dead, who finally died in his care and were buried in the swamp.
“When we also queried him on the claims that he used the body parts of the deceased to sell to ritualists, he swore that he was only a traditional healer and not a human parts seller.”
Owoseni said Adeyemi was earlier invited for questioning after it was discovered that he put his son in chains.
