The Lagos State Police Command has hailed residents of the Adamo area of Ikorodu for arresting a suspect said to be an Islamic cleric, identified as Babalola, who was allegedly in possession of a human skull, and handed him over to the police.
He was reportedly arrested alongside some yet-to-be-identified others.
The spokesperson for the state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, in a post on X on Saturday via his handle, @BenHundeyin, assured the residents that justice would be done concerning the matter.
“We commend the good people of Ikorodu for doing the right thing and not yielding to jungle justice. We will ensure justice is done,” Hundeyin said while retweeting the post by an X user, @DejiAdesogan, about the incident.
