A popular prophet and church founder, Pastor Gabriel Josaya a.k.a Eli-Wakuku, and his accomplice, a herbalist identified as Gabriel Moyosore, have been sentenced to 4 years imprisonment for trading human parts.
Josaya who is said to be the founder of St. Moses Orimolade Cherubim and Seraphim Church, in Ilorin, was nabbed alongside the herbalist who bought human skulls from him.
The duo were convicted of conspiracy, trespass and unlawful possession of human parts.
It was learnt that Josaya unlawfully gained entry into a cemetery, where he exhumed human skulls and sold them to various customers at the rate of N8,000 per skull.
The herbalist, Moyosore was arrested and reportedly confessed to the crime after a human skull was discovered in his possession.
The Investigating Police Officer, Peter Ibiyemi told the court in his evidence that Josaya who began the business in 2009, confessed that he had exhumed over 200 human skulls from the Muslim Cemetery, Osere area of Ilorin.
