A man who was arrested in Lagos for exhuming and selling human parts has told the Lagos State Police Command said there was nothing wrong in selling dead people’s parts since the dead never use them.

Segun Kayode who works at a cemetery in Epe area of the state, was arrested with a human skull which according to police reports, he sold for a living and had a reputation in the area.

But Kayode was not denying that he did, he had even displayed a sign saying “skull for sale” when he was arrested. According to Police source, the grandfather, who could not give his exact age, said he started selling human parts because he was poor and jobless.

“I live at 2,Tungbehin Street, Epe. I have two children and I am a grandfather. I have always been poor all my life because I had no formal or informal education. I used to be a fisherman but when there were no longer fishes in rivers in my area, I became a gardener at Epe Local Government Secretariat

“About four years ago, the LG said they no longer needed my services so I started trimming grass at a cemetery in the area.”

He said he got into the business while clearing weeds in the cemetery one day. He noticed a human skull which had been dug up and he immediately thought of the opportunity.

“Most times, when a corpse is not buried with a coffin, the possibility of the corpse resurfacing is very high. So, what workers at the cemetery do is to gather some of the corpses and burn them instead of burying them again.”

“I realised that this was not a smart thing to do since it would be better to make money from it. The families of these dead people never care about them once they are buried and weeds had taken over the cemetery.”

He reportedly said he traded only two corpses but had on many times given them out for free.

“I have sold only two human heads. I sold the first one for N1, 000 while I sold the second one for N1, 500. Last week, a resident approached me saying an herbalist needed the head so I got a decomposed head, for him, washed it and put it on a fence to dry.

“A resident saw me and raised the alarm and that was how I was arrested.”
