A Senior Magistrates Court in Ilorin, on Monday, ordered that three men, charged with possession of a human skull, be remanded in a correctional centre pending further judgement, PM News reports.
The Police charged the defendants with two counts of criminal conspiracy and possession of a human skull.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Folorunsho Zacheous told the court that the case was transferred from Nigeria Police, Operation Harmony, Ilorin to the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department on Oct. 18.
Zacheous said that a patrol team attached to the Operation Harmony, led by Sgt. Ogbeide Frank, on the Ajase-Ipo, Omu Aran road, intercepted a commercial vehicle heading to Ilorin. He said that during a random check of the vehicle, Moses was found to have a suspected dried human skull.
