A man on Thursday was nearly mobbed, when he was discovered to be in possession of a human skull. The man disguised as a Christian preacher in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The preacher, who was said to be wearing a white garment, went about preaching and soliciting money from people at the Agbowo Junction where he was arrested. It was discovered he concealed a human skull in a polythene bag which he carried with him.
Also, it was gathered that a man had approached the preacher to pray for him and after doing so, both of them parted ways. But a few seconds later, the man called the preacher and pretended to give him some money, but forcefully grabbed the polythene bag, and the skull drop.
As soon as it was discovered, a mob descended on the fake preacher and beat him to a pulp.
The arrival of a detachment of policemen from the Kajorepo Police Division, saved the fake preacher’s life. He was taken to the police station.
The police public relations officer (PPRO), SP Olabisi Ilobanafor, confirmed the incident.
