Fake Pastor Caught With Human Skull In Osun

Authorities of the Police command in Osun State, on Thursday, paraded a 35-year-old man, identified as Clement Oyetunde, who was arrested with a human skull and other charms at Adeowo area of Modakeke, Osun State.
The state Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Marafa made this disclosure while briefing newsmen, at the headquarters of the Police command. He hinted that the suspect’s arres...t was made possible through a tip off from some residents of the area.
Speaking through the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs Folasade Odoro, the Police boss said Clement, in connivance with one Wasiu, who is now at large, buried the human skull inside his house, located at Adeowo area, Modakeke.
According to him, the suspect, who confessed to the crime, said some unseen spirits were chasing him in the dead of the night and forced him to reveal how the human skull was buried in the house, which he was using as church.
Responding to question from journalists, Clement said “I am a pastor of the Cherubim and Seraphim, Oke-Itura parish, Adeowo area of Modakeke in Osun State. It was Wasiu that brought the skull to me. We buried it at my backyard. Wasiu left immediately and I don’t know his whereabouts, now.
“Few days later, while I was sleeping in the house, I heard strange voices singing and drumming in Christian way as if they were worshiping. The tune suddenly changed into traditional song and some invisible spirits started telling me that I should return the skull of Iya-Osun.”
“They told me that the skull we buried in my house was Mama Osun’s skull and that the woman was from Ondo in Ondo State. They insisted that I must return the skull and the noise was too much for me to bear as my head was swelling.
“That was why I ran out from the house and called for help so that the spirits would not kill me inside the house. It was then that the people in my area gathered and they eventually called the police,” Clement narrated.
While commending the people of the area, especially the landlord association and the vigilante men for providing useful information that culminated in the arrest of the suspect, Marafa assured that the police would apprehend Wasiu, stressing that the duo would face the full wrath of the law.

  1. What baffles me is that with all this rituals common with the Yorubas . They still end up in abject poverty

  2. This man had comited a crime which neded 2 b condemnd and nt a tribal denigration.It does happens 2 all tribe be it Hausa Ibo or Yoruba. May b u are nt convasant wt d news.

  3. I am from Delta state and this has nothing to do with the Yorubas. Just say it is a problem in Nigeria period.

  4. I am always disappointed with Nigerians that bring in ethnic sentiment into every issues . The issue of entrepreneurs pastors cut across every nook and cranny of this country. These pastors take advantage of the gullibility of Nigerians to make cheap money. TB Joshua case is a typical example, if Nigeria is a country where there is rule of law, TB Joshua would have been cooling in prison over the preventable death of his miracle seekers in his church. The man with the biggest church in South Korea is in prison over his stake in the cap side boat that killed many student.
