THE Police Command in Lagos has confirmed that it arrested a 31-year-old man, Monday Alfred, for allegedly being in possession of human parts.

The Command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Lagos.

Hundeyin said that the suspect was arrested on Wednesday at about 2.15 p.m. by a patrol team from Imota Division, on Ori-Okuta Old Shagamu Road.

He said the team observed that two young men on a motorcycle with registration number JBG 276 VU, were on top speed heading towards Shagamu from Imota.

“ One of the suspects jumped down and ran into the bush as soon as they were stopped by the patrol team.

“ They were given a hot chase, which led to the arrest of Monday Alfred of Isale-Aye Araromi Imota, who was the motorcycle rider.

“Upon thorough search of the black sack found with them, two cut hands suspected to be human parts, were found in a liquid suspected to be alcohol in a plastic bucket,” the spokesman said.

Hundeyin said the motorcycle, one Tecno and one Vivo mobile phones, were also recovered from the suspect.

He said efforts were intensified to apprehend the suspect who escaped. (NAN)
