Exhuming corpse to make money is increasingly becoming a trade in Ogun State and other parts of the country.

However, the Police had insisted that the illicit trade won’t subsist with the arrest of one Olorunwa Jimoh who is currently cooling his feet in police net for the same offence. Jimoh confessed that his business albeit illegitimate is to search for graveyards from which he exhumes corpses in Ago-Iwoye.

It was gathered that one Otunba Adekoya, a resident of Adekoya Street in the town, caught him in the act in his neighborhood, after which he raised alarm, leading to his arrest and detention at the Ago-Iwoye Divisional Police Headquarters.

The unusual confidence which Jimoh exuded in the presence of policemen painted a picture of an unrepentant man. He even justified his act as a means to survive what he called the hard time.

“What everybody is looking for is what to do to eat. This is my own means of making money to feed myself. Abore is the one who buys any part I take to him,” he said defiantly.

The Police have since commenced a search for Abore who is said to have fled Ago-Iwoye soon after the news of Jimoh’s arrest broke.

The Police, however, have decided to keep a sealed lips on the update regarding the search. “We cannot tell you how far we have gone so that it won’t affect our job. But I can assure you that he would be fished out to confirm or deny the allegation,” Muyiwa Adejobi, Ogun State PPRO said.
