'Police Have No Right To Arrest Me' - Man Caught With 2 Human Skulls (Photo)

The commissioner of police in Cross River state, Hafiz Mohammed Inuwa, confirmed that the Anti-Cultism & Kidnapping Squad of the command recovered the two human heads from Otu Edem Bassey, 30, in Calabar.

Police operatives swooped on Bassey and his gang when they were preparing some rituals for their outing.

He said Bassey was picked up at his No. 12b Etim Edem Street residence in Calabar, while others took to their heels.

He said charms and other items used for incantation were also recovered, adding that the suspect would soon be charged to court when investigation is completed.

But while speaking to reporters, the suspect accused the police of arresting him without justification and claimed that he was a traditional healer. “The skulls were given to me by my late father to continue with the traditional medicines which he used to practice to cure people.

"I am a herbalist and I heal people of different sickness. I have my license to operate as a herbalist. Somebody ran in front of my house and the Police came to my house to arrest me.

"They have no right because I have been using these skulls for my jobs since my father left it for me some eight years ago,” Bassey said.
