Three suspected ritualists were yesterday smoked out of an abandoned drainage in the Ile Zik axis of Lagos-Abeokuta highway.
Human parts concealed in some sachets were reportedly found in the drainage.
Many tunnels were also seen in the area adjacent to a perimeter fence of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja.
It was gathered that one of the suspects was found with an iPhone.
The suspect, it was learnt, confessed that he was not the only one involved in the criminal act, leading to the arrest of two other suspects.
Eyewitness said a hawker who fell into the hands of the gang raised the alarm after she managed to escape.
People around the area were said to have invaded the place, where shoes belonging to males and females were found.
A sharp knife was found on one of the suspects said to have been posing as a mad man.
Men of the Rapid Response Squad (RSS) rescued the suspects from being lynched by a mob at the scene.
The suspects were whisked away from the scene in a police van.
The Nation learnt that the suspects are being interrogated at Isokoko Police Station in the Agege.
There are at least eight patrol vans of the police at the location, while a huge crowd converged on the place, making it difficult for free vehicular movement
