Like other streets and markets, canvassers and touts hang around the place pitching for customers and mugus (gullible people). Though low in reputation,touts are an essential segment of this time – honoured market. Over the years, the place has come to be known as a place where any thing goes. And so, the touts come handy here.

A week ago, our reporter posed as a juju priest who was in dire need of human body parts for urgent rituals. After about four hours of waiting and being passed from one “contact” to another, and played around like ping-pong, the reporter got a dealer who “booked” him. The rule here is, if you want a fresh human body part, you book and wait. If your order is for dry parts you get instant delivery.

But don’t jump to a hasty conclusion, there are genuine traders and honest businessmen and women at Jankara.They perhaps don’t even know that the place also habour a dark secret. A police post even looks over the place. A signpost calls it Oko Awo Police Post. An office on the counter there stared at our reporter angrily when he asked him if the police know about the wheeling and dealing in human body parts in the area: “What kind of question be this? I beg go, no be for here—o” the police officer retorted angrily.

This expression when translated literally means “seal your lips” in Yoruba. The term is said in whisper and hushed tone — menu…mo .When you say the first syllable, you pause, look around to be sure there’s no third party or curiosity cat eaves dropping. When a deal is struck, you will be taken to some dank shanties and courtyard for your consignment.

Sunday Sun learnt when a tongue is “ritualized and jujufied” that it “works well” for traders and people who apply for visa to go abroad “when well prepared, no one go question you for embassy and even your working place”, a dealer whose alias is Baba Ibeji revealed.

Even animals considered endangered species are not spared in Jankara. Herbalist beside the area’s butcher shop openly sell a wide range of animals. Imprisoned in wire-mesh cages are live animals like eagles, tortoise, chamellion, alligator and so on. A live eagle goes for N10,000.

Live chamelion costs N2,500. Dead and dry one goes for N2,000. The lizard-like creature, Sunday Sun learnt, is in demand by Advance Fee Fraudster —419. “When the thing is worked”, it means the more you look, the less you see, you will never caught,” one of the dealers who declined to give his name said.

The dealers know their terrain and the world they inhabit.They smell and sense danger in the air all the time. They are inclined to do business with you if you mention and have a prove of a regular Juju priest and customer. Even at this, they will still carry out a check on you. There’s no physical search. Under the pretex of “bringing your thing”, they will call your guarrantor and run a check on you. Any discovery of falsehood, they will cancel the deal and melt out of sight, leaving you to wait forever

Jankara might be the possible place where missing persons in Lagos resurface but reduced to faceless, liveless body parts. As though to corroborate this, the managing director of Lagos State waste Management Authority (LAWMAN), Mr Ola Oresanya told Sunday Sun in an interview that hardly a day passes in the city without street sweepers and refuse collectors picking dismembered corpses and body parts.

Sunday Sun learnt when a tongue is “ritualized and jujufied” that it “works well” for traders and people who apply for visa to go abroad “when well prepared, no one go question you for embassy and even your working place”, a dealer whose alias is Baba Ibeji revealed. Toe and finger, Sunday Sun further learnt are good for travelers and business people. “ The toe is for traveling without falling.

Now thisi-here is the REAL sh-bhang y’all, so move over, Rover, because I’m here to talk about the The REAL CHIT. And I ain’t talking ’bout none of that wimpy-asz ketchup and Hollywood special-effects movie chit y’all is used to neither, homie, ’cause what Nigeria got is waayy more serious than that. Tell you what, you’ll never look at a stack of barbecue spare-ribs the same way again, after you check out this market. ha ha

Kicking off with the first of my many questions, how soon can we expect the Jankara Human Parts Market to put up a web-site highlighting the kidnapping, murder and dismemberment processes that make their organization one of the most renowned and successful in all of Nigeria ? Reflecting over the availability of fresh vaginas for sale in Jankara Market, I can only imagine the sort of jokes that would get told as such sales are transacted. On a more serious note, are the breasts sold singly, or as a pair, and can they be returned to the seller after a trial period, for replacement or upgrade to newer models ?

Naturally, overseas customers looking to get AHEAD of the competition in business and love may wish to order fresh African cranial specimens for their Juju and Santeria rituals, BUT, with Nigeria’s reputation for providing no grid electricity to power the deep-freezers that are needed to keep cool heads in the Jankara Cadaver Warehouses, frequent assurances will have to be issued, to the effect that all cold-rooms are powered by multiple redundant back-up generators that are imported, as opposed to being Aba-made or even Indian-made.

The organized exploitation of this vital human resource certainly must be cause for great professional pride among the commodity traders in that ever-popular line of work, which again proves that Nigeria is HEADED in the right direction, and making great HEADWAY in its commitment to the more unconventional, innovative and daring initiatives of trade and commerce.
