July 18, 2014 – Dead Baby Found In Sack In Osisioma, Abia State: Police Arrest Ritualists With Corpse of 3-Year-Old Girl

2 men are currently in police detention following the gruesome discovery of the lifeless body of a baby girl in a sack at Ariaria Junction, Osisioma near Aba in Abia state.

The two suspected ritualists who claimed innocence in the death of the baby said a man approached them and told them to help him dispose the baby’s corpse for N2000.

The man in blue shirt said he accepted to dispose the baby’s corpse because he needed money. He said the man paid him N2,000 and later drove him to the hospital where they took the corpse for burial.

The one in black shirt said he’s not a ritualist and that he only assisted the other one in carrying the dead baby.

Hear what NSDSC commandant said about their arrest;

“The people were attracted to the suspects following a sharp argument between them and another man. The man, however, escaped when he sensed that the residents had become suspicious of them.

“The mob was infuriated by the strange content of the sack and demanded explanations from the men, but their failure to provide satisfactory answer made the mob descend on them.

“They will be handed over to the police for proper investigation. The NSCDC men only rescued the suspects from the angry mob so that the truth of their mission could be unravelled.”

Ritualism is suddenly on the rise now that election is coming.
