•Police recover victim’s head
•Their mum died mysteriously, late father, retired Immigration boss
The head of 39-year-old Akinbuyi Ajayi, who was allegedly murdered by his brothers, Omotola and Toye, inside their duplex in FESTAC Town, Lagos, has been recovered. Police detectives from FESTAC Police Station led by Divisional Police Officer, Mr. Mohammed Mu'azu, a Chief Superintendent, found it inside a polythene bag.
The hitherto missing head was found just as Sunday Sun was let into the world of the Ajayis said to be natives of Yewa Awori North Local Government Area in Ogun State. Sources revealed that the mother of the Ajayi brothers, two of who have since been arrested for allegedly killing one of their siblings, Akinbuyi, and selling his body parts, died in mysterious circumstances.
A neighbour, who did not want his name in print, stated that the woman "vanished many years ago and has not been seen till date." The visibly shocked neighbour told Sunday Sun that the latest incident has opened the eyes of residents to what could have happened to the woman he described as "very nice." Also, one of the arrested brothers, Omotola, told the police that their father, who died years ago in an auto accident, retired as a Controller of Immigration.
Another resident, who identified himself as Disu, said the second suspect, Toye, who had told the police that he was a primary school teacher, was studying for his Masters degree in Engineering at the University of Lagos at the time their alleged crime was uncovered. It was also gathered that the last born of the Ajayis, Seun, returned from the United Kingdom recently and had been at loggerheads with his elder brothers - Omotola and Toye - before the incident and has since abandoned home.
According to sources, the two suspects had vainly tried to discourage Seun from living with them before their alleged sins found them out. Expectedly, other residents of the one-storey twin duplex where the crime took place have since fled their homes. It was gathered that a woman who resides at a section of the ground floor took to her heels when she saw policemen searching the flats at the back of the building.
The two suspects, Omotola and his immediate younger brother, Toye, were arrested on Thursday evening following the discovery of the decomposing body of their younger sibling, Akinbuyi, inside a room in their home at B Close, House 6 of 3rd Avenue in FESTAC town. When the body was found, the head, hands, breasts, private part and parts of the legs were missing and this led to suspicion that the suspects might have sold them.
A police officer (name withheld) told Sunday Sun that a good Nigerian, who suspected the offensive odour from the building, had alerted the police. Consequently, the DPO, Mr Mu'azu, mobilized his men to the place and due to failure of the duo to satisfy their police interrogators, a search was conducted and the decomposing body found in one of the rooms upstairs. Also recovered from the room were charms and amulets.
One of the policemen likened the incident to Clifford Orji, who was caught selling human parts in Lagos many years ago, but described the case of the Ajayis as worse because they allegedly killed their brother and were selling his body parts in bits to make a living.
