“I am a photographer and I own a boutique as well. It was last year that my uncle took me to an herbalist,” he said when paraded by the police in Ondo State.

“After he was done, he called me to come pick it up and that was last year in November. He directed that I should be bathing with the human head every Thursday at exactly 1 am. I used it for a month but didn’t see any difference in my business. So, I had to call the herbalist and tell him to refund my money.

“I also asked him to come and pick up the human head as well but he refused to come and pick it up. He however agreed to start refunding my money and has already sent me N20, 000.

“On the day I was caught, I decided to go and throw away the skull, so I dropped it in my backyard, i went out and before I could return, my landlord’s children saw it, informed their father and they ultimately called the police.”

Funmilayo Odunlami Omisanya, police spokesperson Ondo State command, said Akinyosuyi was reported to the police by his landlord following his suspicious activities.
