The police in Oyo have arrested two suspects allegedly linked with the roasting and eating of the flesh of police officers burnt in Ibadan during #EndSARS protest.

Police spokesman Olugbenga Fadeyi confirmed the arrest of the suspects on Saturday in Ibadan in an interview with NAN.

The suspects, a 34-year-old pregnant woman and a 43-year-old man have been transferred to the Force Intelligence Bureau at the Force Headquarters in Abuja for further investigation, he said.

The woman was alleged to have eaten some body parts of one of the police victims, an allegation which she denied, saying while it was true that she was at the scene, she was only given the body parts to keep by the second suspect.

The 43-year-old suspect did not also deny being at the scene of the incident with other hoodlums, but said it was the woman who voluntarily took the body parts and only asked him for a towel or handkerchief to wrap them in.

The fallen policemen were deployed to contain the #EndSARS protest of October 22, which was hijacked by hoodlums, when they met their deaths.
