According to "Leadership" (Nigeria's most influential newspaper or so they say) an Ilorin magistrate’s court yesterday ordered that a cleric, Gabriel Josiah, (a.k.a) Eli-Wakuku, and two others be remanded in prison custody for allegedly being in possession of human skulls. El Wakuku is the prophet and founder of St. Moses Orimolade Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Osere, Ilorin, Kwara State.

This could be a worrying precedent for the Roman Catholic Church whose priests and bishops wave skulls and other skeletal remains around at every opportunity. Heck, they even take them on tours of foreign countries.
