The severed head of the two-year-old infant beheaded last week by a Nigerien citizen, Mamodu Bashir Ibrahim at Ofada, in Mowe area of Ogun state has been recovered by Ogun Police Command. The infant was beheaded by Ibrahim, who also raped the mother before fleeing the scene. He was later arrested at Mowe by police detectives attached to the Department of Criminal Investigation, Eleweran, Abeokuta, with the assistance of community members.
The suspect took the investigation team to Mokola area of Ibadan, Oyo State, where the infant’s head was recovered in a bag in the bush last Tuesday. The state police public relations officer, Deputy Superintendent, Muyiwa Adejobi, disclosed that the suspect had already confessed to the crime “but is still keeping the identity of those who sent him to get the ‘commodity’.”
Adejobi, a deputy superintendent of police, said that the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, has, however, directed detectives to intensify efforts to identify the buyers and those who engage in such dirty deals.
