Politicians buy human parts from me, says suspect (photo)

The Kwara state Police command yesterday July 23rd paraded two men who they said are involved in trading of human parts.

The men whose names were given as Amos Kareem and Abubakar Ladan were arrested with human head, leg and hand in Tabira village, Okuta in Baruten LGA of the state, according to a report by Vanguard.

When interviewed, one of the suspects, Abubakar Ladan said Amos Kareem promised to give him a motorcycle if he could find him human head, hand and leg. His desire to own a motorcycle made him go to a cemetery where he exhumed bodies and cut off their heads, hands and legs (pictured above).

The police also paraded a man said to be an accomplice, having accommodated the suspects in Tabira village, though the man denied knowledge of the business Kareem and Ladan were involved in.

Photos: Python swallows Antelope then spews out its dead body

The jaw dropping moment a giant Python swallowed a baby Antelope was captured on camera by animal rescuer Nitish Bambhaniya in the village of Billa in Gujarat, India.
"I got a call in the morning for an Indian rock python. When we reached the spot, we saw this massive python. The python had hunted a baby blue bull and had already eaten 80% of the bull's body. It is on the edge of an open field, so lots of locals start gathering there." Nitish said
As people gathered, with many saying the snake should be killed as it could be a danger to them, the snake known as the Indian Rock Python stopped swallowing the antelope & let go of its lifeless body
"Pythons do it so that they can shed body weight and escape faster. Meanwhile, we convinced the villagers not to kill the python and they agreed. Later we caught the python and handed it over to the forest department officials." Nitish said
The python was released by the officials in a nearby forest, before slithering away to freedom. See pics of the action after the cut...

OMG! Kanye West leaves Kim K after just 58 days of marriage! Lol

While Kanye West is singing praises of his new wife, saying no woman on earth turns him on like she does, In Touch Weekly is reporting that he's left her after only 58 days of marriage..lol. Were they not just in Mexico with their daughter over the weekend on family vacation? This is another BS story but you can't deny it's interesting to read

According to In Touch;
Kim Kardashian is desperate to save face as Kanye West abandons her just weeks after their wedding. Kim Kardashian has made a career out of flaunting her perfect life.
So after a day of lounging in the sun in lush Punta Mita Mexico, on July 18, she dutifully shared bikini selfies with her nearly 40 million social media followers . . . But In Touch has learned it's all nothing more than a carefully crafted smoke screen - and that just 58 days after exchanging vows, Kim and Kanye's marriage is over.
That guy is too obsessed with Kim to walk away from her. So not buying this story...at all!
