Two suspect were arrested for the beheading of a woman of 42 years old who is a lover of one of the suspects.
According to the police, one of the suspects, Asimiyu Ayantayo, who was the lover of the deceased, allegedly beheaded her and cut off her two hands after making love with her.
However, Ayantayo claimed that Emiola died as a result of a charm that was placed on her by another lover; adding that he mutilated her corpse in order to make it impossible for residents of the area to identify her body.
"She was my mistress," he said. "I contacted 'magun' (charm) on her during love-making. She wanted to somersault but I helped her. Then she started vomiting after the act and fell down from the chair and died. It was then I beheaded her and cut off her two hands. I don’t need the body parts for anything and I did nothing with them."
The second suspect, Isiaka Akanbi, denied culpability in the alleged murder, saying his friend only sent him to buy a sack for him but did not know the purpose for which he needed it.
The Oyo State Police Commissioner, Tambari Mohammed, said residents of the area alerted the police about a headless body dumped in the area. He said the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
