On Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at about 8.30PM, a team of Anti-kidnapping personnel of the Lagos State Police Command on routine patrol between Ajah/Epe expressway, apprehended two young men.

The policemen were shocked at the discovery of a fresh human head in their possession.

They were later identified as brothers namely Ayodeji Obadimeji, aged 18 years and Saheed Obadimeji, aged 19 years of Tunde Balogun Street, Shapati, Ibeju-Lekki.

On interrogation, they confessed that one Sodiq Abefe contracted them to provide him with human head at the cost of 200, 000 naira.

So, they lured the victim by sending him to buy a bottle of soft drink for them and when he brought the drink back to them, they held him and cut off his head with a knife.

The victim has been identified by his parents as a 10-year-old boy, Joseph Makinde.

The torso has been recovered from an uncompleted building located at Shapati and effort is being made to arrest the said Sodiq Abefe who allegedly contracted the duo to commit the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police has directed that the case be handed over to the Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation And Intelligence Department (SCIID) Panti Yaba for further investigation. 

The CP Lagos reiterated his usual warnings to criminals to repent or relocate from the state or regret the consequence of their action.

While the police continue with their investigation towards ensuring justice is done, who will console late Joseph Makinde’s parents?

Facts of the case so far suggest that the suspects were no strangers to the victim and this is another indication that familiarity is not enough reason to take chances with children.
