Bricklayer, two others arrested for stealing human parts from church’s cemetery

A bricklayer identified as Kunle Adewunmi, who is said to be a specialist in breaking into cemeteries to steal human body parts, was arrested alongside his two accomplices in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

According to reports, Adewunmi and his accomplices were arrested last Saturday shortly after a female member of the Odua People’s Congress (OPC), raised alarm after she caught the men digging the grave. Adewunmi is the bricklayer usually hired by the church to plaster graves after burial of bodies at the graveyard.

‘’The bricklayer is very known to the church members. He is the one usually contracted to plaster tombs inside the cemetery and took advantage of that to carry out his nefarious act at the cemetery.’’ a member f the church said

Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to supplying the human parts to a trader at the Itoku market in the state.

The trio have since been charged to court.
