A human skeleton, believed to be that of a woman, was found in a pastor’s house in Peace Land Estate, Akute, Ogun State, yesterday.
According to eyewitnesses, the shocking discovery was made when the owner of the pastor’s house tried to evict him from his flat over late payment of rent.
“The pastor did not pay his rent for a year. The landlady, who was angry with the situation of things, stormed his home with some people in-order to evict him, but were shocked when they discovered a human skeleton inside,” one of the sources revealed.
People in the neighbourhood were attracted to the scene while the matter was quickly reported to the police.
However the suspect, who owns a church, was said to have made some revelations about the skeleton. He alleged that it belonged to his sister. According to him, his parents had just three children – himself and two sisters. He said he lived with them in the flat.
However, for sometime now, one of the sisters named Funmi has not been seen again.
When people asked about her, “he would say she went to the mountain,” said the source.
She, however, allegedly died since 2010 and her body was abandoned in the house.
From the position of the skeleton, it appeared the deceased was kneeling on the ground
The Police have since arrested the suspect.
In recent times many suspects have been arrested with skulls and other human parts in different parts of Ogun State including Abeokuta and Sango Ota.
