‘I bathed for 1 month with human skull to boost patronage but did not see any difference’ – Suspect arrested in Ondo says

A suspected internet fraudster, otherwise known as ‘Yahoo boy’, Franklin Akinyosuri, who was recently arrested with a human skull and fetish items in Ondo State, has said he baths with the skull to ‘’boost his business patronage”.


The suspect was arrested by the police after the human skull he allegedly kept in a black polythene bag at the section of the compound where he resides was noticed by the children of the landlord who raised the alarm about the items. Upon interrogation by the police, the suspect claimed his uncle took him to a native doctor for rituals to boost sales and attract customers to his photography and boutique business.


“The herbalist asked me to pay N200,000 to make a concoction for me. I paid within three weeks. He instructed that I should be bathing with the human head every Thursday at exactly 1 am. I used it for a month but didn’t see any difference in my business. So, I had to call the herbalist and tell him to refund my money.” he said

Akinyosuyi said he called the native doctor to come and pick up the human skull but he refused, though he promised to refund the money.

“I decided to throw away the human skull. I dropped it in my backyard. Unfortunately, I went out and before I could return, my landlord’s children saw it, informed their father and they called the police,” he said

Spokesperson of the command, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, said further investigation by the police led to the arrest of another suspect in the crime, Dare Oyegoke, who claimed to be an evangelist. She said Mr Oyegoke told the police he gave the human skull and the fetish items to one Sarafa Oyelade, the native doctor who allegedly confessed to having helped Akinyosuyi in procuring the human skull from one Asekun, a local vigilante, from Ikirun in Osun.
