The statement further revealed that Idris claimed to be an Islamic cleric, popularly known as Alfa in his community. He reportedly confessed to obtaining some of the body parts from another cleric and a man named Samuel Kutelu. Idris also allegedly admitted to supplying three human heads to a traditional priest, Babatunde Kayode.

“The suspect has named an Alhaji, also a cleric, and one Samuel Kutelu as his sources for some of the body parts,” Odunlami confirmed. “He further claimed to have supplied three human heads to an Oluawo (Babatunde Kayode). The Oluawo and Kayode have also been arrested by the police.”
