Ifasoji Ayangbesan, 35, a suspected ritualist, admitted to purchasing a set of fresh human legs for N20,000.
Ayangbesan said he was not involved in the killing of Adeyemi, despite being accused of trying to bribe police officers with N1m to avoid being apprehended.
The victim was reportedly killed on January 28, 2023.
The suspect was paraded alongside 12 other suspects on Wednesday at the Ogun State Police Command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, the state capital.
Ayangbesan, who is a resident of the Iloti axis of the Ijebu-Ode Local Government Area of the state, said he collected the legs from his friend, Lukman, whom he said exhumed the corpse from a cemetery and severed the legs.
He said, “I bought the two fresh human legs, but I was not involved in the murder of the victim. I was approached by my friend, Lukman, who told me he had a pair of legs to sell.
“Though I told him I did not need them, he convinced me to use them for a ritual to better my life and I agreed.”
When challenged with the charge of trying to bribe police officers, Ayangbesan claimed that a lawyer had told him to give N10m to get his release, but he had only been able to gather N1m.
He claimed that when he went to provide the money to the attorney, he was detained.
Five accused cultists, eight armed robbery suspects, and one suspected serial murderer were among the other suspects presented.
Olanrewaju Oladimeji, the state’s commissioner of police, paraded the suspects who, according to him, will soon face charges in court.
