Man in court for stealing skull from cemetery

The police on Tuesday May 31, arraigned a 38-year-old man, Ebuka Enuma, before a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ court in Lagos for alleged possession of a human skull.

The suspect who lives at Bariga area of Lagos, is said to have stolen the skull after he broke into Amukoko Cemetery and excavated an old grave on May 13.
