At the time of her arrest, Folake confessed to having posed as a sex worker to get victims for her human parts business, which she has been running for nine years.
Preliminary investigation also revealed that the suspect, identified as Folake Folade, was not mad after all, but rather the ringleader of a syndicate that sells human parts, according to the sunnewsonline.com.
The suspect, who was arrested alongside her accomplice, identified as Emmanuel Gbenga, disclosed that some of her victims were men who she lured from hotels where she posed as a commercial sex worker.
One of the residents of the area where Folake traded her business, Mojisola Kehinde, who claimed to have seen her acting mad many times, said: “She opened a can of worms when she was caught, and said she had been at her trade spot for nine years and that her business was to sell human parts to ready buyers.”
“She said her customers usually parked on the bridge at night with their vehicles bonnets opened, pretending that their vehicles had one fault or the other, unknown to people that they were waiting to get human parts.
“She said her boys would be beneath the vehicle pretending to be working on the car to douse any suspicion and, in the process, hand over a nylon bag which contained the needed human parts,” Mojisola narrated.
Another resident, Lawrence Oke, also claimed that Folake revealed that “whenever she failed to find preys to meet up with the demands of clients, she would dress up and head straight to any hotel of her choice at night.
“Any man that picks her for the night becomes a prey as he would end up in her den, where his body parts were later harvested and sold off to waiting clients,” Lawrence said.
He also alleged that Folake confessed that she had boys that worked for her. According to him, “she said once her hands touched someone, the person would lose his senses and follow her sheepishly.
She said her husband came there at times to have sex with her at night.”
When she was being interrogated by the mob, she allegedly threw her phone into the bush. While looking for the phone, the mob discovered a tunnel where some decomposing corpses were found.
The recovered bodies included those of a middle-aged man, a baby that was less than three months and a nine-year-old boy said to have been returning from holiday classes.
Also recovered inside the tunnel were school uniforms, lunch boxes, schools bags and adult clothes. Two Ghana-must-go bags of foreign currencies and wads of N1000 notes were also found.
A mechanic, Bamijoko Ayinde, who has a workshop in the area, said: “Do you know she was always found with new N1000 note each time she went to buy anything? And she would not collect the balance. We all assumed she was mad.”
Investigations are still ongoing by the Lagos State Police Command.
