Body parts recovered from the cleric, arrested for a hacking lady to death

Two weeks after a lady who was suspected to be in her 20s was declared missing by her husband, a cleric in Oyo State, Alfa Tiamiyu Abass, has been found with the mutilated parts of her remains.

The body parts of a hairdresser, Barakat, who was declared missing by her family members, have been recovered from Alfa Tiamiyu Abass, a cleric.

Operatives of Atiba Police Division, Oyo State Police Command, arrested Abass in Oyetoro community, in the Oyo West Local Government Area of the state, where the body parts of the deceased were recovered from him.

The suspect was nabbed when community members started to perceive an offensive odour, which they traced to the suspect’s house.

Having traced the odour to Abass’ apartment, the mutilated remains of Barakat were found there, after which the cleric took to his heels.

The community members who traced the offensive odour gave Abass a hot chase and caught him as he attempted to escape.

“When the body was discovered, all fingers pointed toward Abass. A community meeting was held later that evening and everyone was on the lookout for him.

“Around 11 pm, the door of his apartment opened and he came out with a nylon bag. A young boy confronted him and alerted other community members. When the nylon bag was searched, substances suspected to be human brains were discovered inside,” one Siyanbola Akinkunmi who witnessed the incident recounted.

Akinkunmi added that aside from the mutilated remains of Barakat, more human parts, including a female head, were found in the house.

Confirming the incident, Oyo Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Adewale Osifeso said Abass was arrested following a lodged complaint.
