The Oyo State Police Command has arrested a pregnant woman and a man for allegedly eating flesh of two policemen killed and roasted in Ibadan during the violence which trailed the #EndSARS protest in Ibadan.
Recall that three policemen wearing mufti and driving a car were said to have knocked down a motorcyclist during the #EndSARS crisis.
The cops were said to have been pursued by angry residents who caught up with them at Iwo Road. Having realized that they could not escape with the car, they abandoned the car and fled.
One of them was rescued by men of ‘Operation Burst’ but two of them were beaten to death by the mob and their corpses were set ablaze.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State, Mr Gbenga Fadeyi, confirmed the arrest of the woman and the man to the News Agency of Nigeria.
The NAN quoted the PPRO to have said the suspects, “a 34-year-old expectant mother and a 43-year-old man, have been transferred to the Force Intelligence Bureau at the Force Headquarters in Abuja for further investigation.”
The 34-year-old woman was alleged to have eaten some body parts of one of the police victims but she denied the allegation.
She reportedly said she was at the scene, she was only given the body parts to keep by the second suspect, the 43-year-old man.
The NAN reports that the 43-year-old suspect did not also deny being at the scene of the incident with other hoodlums, but said it was the woman who voluntarily took the body parts and only asked him for a towel or handkerchief to wrap them in.
