Speaking to journalists on Thursday, Shaye said he was at Shinabole camp where he has a farm when two sons of Alhassan, Dipo and Damaka, that came to tell him about the burnt body in the bush.

Shaye said the boys told him that their father asked him to accompany them to bring some parts from the burnt body as he was in need of human parts.

He said he followed them, removed the parts and was asked to keep them.
