A middle aged man has been arrested in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital for possessing human parts.
It was also gathered that the neighbours of the suspect swooped on his residence at about noon on Sunday and the suspect was allegedly caught with human parts.
He was being beaten and could have been lynched but for the timely arrival of the police.
He was later dragged to Adewole Police station in the Ilorin metropolis amidst shouting and rain of curses by the crowd of people.
It was also gathered that house of the suspect was demolished and his properties were carted away by hoodlums who took advantage of the situation to perpetuate their dastardly acts.
The police public relations officer, Ajayi Okasanmi, who reportedly confirmed the incident, said that the command had commenced investigation on the alleged crime.
