The suspects with whom human head was found are said to be from Wobe Fulani camp in Okuta, Baruten local government area of the state.

According to the Police commissioner the suspects conspired and lured the deceased (their friend) into the bus, killed him and severed his head.


Amore added: “Kosubosu police division in the local government received information that the suspects were found in possession of a bag containing human head among other things.

Investigation further revealed that the suspects took the head to one Alhaji Kuranga of Muhat company to buy. The said Alhaji refused and raised alarm.

“A search in the bush led to the recovery of a headless body of a man that had earlier been declared missing, who the suspects confessed to have killed. The cutlass used in the killing and the human head were recovered.”


The commissioner later on inaugurated eminent persons forum to fight crime in the state.

In his address during the inauguration, he said security is not the business of the police but that of all stakeholders.

“That is when the first time I came to the state, I said that my style of policing is community oriented police. That members of the community would be involved in the way they are policed and it is for this reasons that I asked all the District Police Officers and myself to write their numbers in all the police stations and the police headquarters,” he added.
