The suspect however said he did not intend to commit murder and blamed his father who he alleged bewitched him.

“I am into cattle rearing. On that day when I woke up, I took N1,000 from my room and took  my cows out for grazing. Suddenly, I discovered that the cattle were running away and I followed them. On getting back home, something came over me and I used a knife to stab my mother. I also stabbed my brother’s wife. I believe that my father charmed me. I do not have mental disorder.”

Also paraded were Yahaya Umar and Abubakar Saletu who were caught with a human head.

Umar claimed that he and the victim were involved in a quarrel and that he colluded with Saletu to lure him into the bush to kill him.

“There was a conflict among us. We tricked him into the bush and killed him. While we were trying to run away, the police caught us.”

Mr. Olusola Amore who is the commissioner of police in Kwara state said one Abdullahi Adamu of Mamba Fulani Camp in Patigi reported the crimes to the police.

“On August 8, at about 1.20pm, information received from Kosubosu Police Division revealed that Umar and Saletu, both of Wobe Fulani Camp, were found in possession of a bag. On interrogation, the bag was found to contain a human head, among other items.
