A 42-yrs-old suspected ritualist, Emmanuel Olusola has been arrested by officers of the Ogun State Police Command with a dead child. Olusola was arrested at Sapade Garage while attempting to board a bus.
The suspect had a polythene bag with him and the stench from the bag raised the suspicion of people around.
The police at Isara were alerted and the Divisional Officer (DPO) Yusuf Taiwo, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), led some men to the motor park, where they conducted search.
When the baby's body was discovered, the suspect was said to have told the police he was transporting it to Lagos for burial.
