July 9, 2016 – 3 Hunters Arrested With Woman Head In Niger State
Police today paraded 3 suspected ritualists caught with a human head in Mokwa LGA of Niger State few days ago.
The suspects aged 24, 34 & 35 hail from Ekpa village in Mokwa.
They were arrested on Thursday while negotiation the sale of a woman head with undercover police operatives. In the process they were arrested.
This is what one of the suspects told officials of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps today:
“The head belonged to a decomposing female corpse which was found during one of our hunting expeditions. We decided in the bush that we will sell the head to scientists and make money. We looked for a buyer for five months. So when we approached one Isah to buy the head he agreed and said that he has a buyer in Mokwa.
“When the buyer came we started negotiating the price with him and it was in that process that we were arrested.”
