A boy was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing a 4-year-old child before removing his kidney and selling it, police in Nigeria said.

Lagos State police said that they have arrested 16-year-old Tajudeen Azeez, after being accused of killing 4-year-old Ibrahim Hassan Jamiu.

According to the police investigation, Azeez lured Jamiu to the back of the Anglican Primary School building, where he stabbed him to death.

After the victim was dead, the suspect removed the kidney to sell it for N50,000 ($250).

During questioning, the suspect told investigators that a man he identified as Osho, promised to pay him $250 for human organs.

When Azeez saw Jamiu in the morning, he was overcome by the temptation of money and lured the child to the school building where he killed him.

Police found Jamiu’s kidney in a black plastic bag. Police said that Osho is still on the run.
