72-year-old bricklayer caught with human skull in Osun says “Na mistake”
Idris Ajao, who was arrested in Iwo, Osun state, for removing a human skull from a cemetery, has said he made a mistake, reports DailyTrust.
Idris Ajao claimed to be a bricklayer, but said a herbalist Tajudeen Jawesola had assigned him to exhume skulls from graves in the cemetery in return for N10,000.
Ajao said: “Mistake has no master. It was Jawesola that asked me to get the human skull for him. Everybody knows Jawesola to be herbalist and he wanted to use the human skull to do his work.
He said he would give me N10, 000. I should not have listened to him. It is a mistake”. Police are still on the trail for Jawesola.
