Court Grants Pastor Caught With Human Skulls Bail

A magistrate court sitting in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, has granted bail to one Pastor Gabriel Josaya, (a.k.a Eli-Wakuku), the founder of St Moses Orimolade Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Osere area, Ilorin, who was allegedly caught with human heads some weeks ago.
In her ruling, Magistrate Kehinde A. Yahaya, who also ruled on bail application on other two accused persons, Gabriel Moyosore and Yinusa Sa’ad Ayinla, said the accused persons were granted bail in the sum of N2 million each with sureties, who must be civil servants on Grade Level 14 and above.

She said the sureties must have landed property within the jurisdiction of the court.
The accused persons were, however, not in court because the Prison Service authority informed the court that they couldn’t get fuel to transport them to court.
It was alleged that on February 5, Eli-Wakuku conspired with Moyosore, Ayinla and Alfa Alaba Isiaka (now at large) and others to exhume corpses at the Muslim burial ground and remove the heads of the dead.
They were accused of unlawfully gaining entry into the Muslim cemetery in Osere area of Ilorin, since 2009 till date, where some human skulls were allegedly removed by them which they sold to various customers at the rate of N8,000 per skull.
They were charged with criminal conspiracy, criminal trespass and unlawful possession of human heads, offences contrary to sections 97, 348, and 219 of the penal code.
