Answering questions from our correspondent, Odusanya said he exhumed his first corpse in 2016, adding that his two previous efforts to make money through ritual failed.

He said, “I was caught after I exhumed a corpse at a burial ground in Ilesa which I wanted to use for money ritual. I have been exhuming corpses since 2016 and removing their parts for money ritual, but the rites failed.

“I exhumed corpses at Sagamu, Ogun State, but was caught in Osun while trying to remove the teeth of a corpse. It used to take me about 30 minutes to remove a tooth from a corpse. But after some time, it takes me lesser time because I mastered it.”

Shittu said all the suspects would be handed over to the Osun command of the Department of State Services for prosecution.
