Witnesses said that the suspect was caught on Balogun Street, Oshodi, on his way to dispose of the wife’s body.
Apparently suspecting fowl-play, some youths stopped the suspect and insisted on ascertaining the content of the smelling drum on his head.
“The youths were shocked to find that it contained human parts, which forced them to beat up the suspect and stripped him naked until a police patrol team came to the scene and rescued him,’’ an eyewitness said.
SP Chike Oti, police spokesman in Lagos State, who confirmed the incident to NAN on Wednesday, said the suspect had been moved from Akinpelu Police Station to State CID for further investigation.
Oti said that the Divisional Police Officer in Akinpelu area told him that “the couple was married in 2016 and that the marriage is childless”.
