Agadi added that the kidnappers had blindfolded the victim, tied his two legs and hands and removed his eyes, leaving him lifeless on the ground.

The shocked father said:

“Who could have done this to my son at that time of the night? They kidnapped him from my residence, while I was sleeping, and took him about two kilometres away from the village.”

On sighting the attackers, Agadi explained that his son shouted for help, but he was abducted by the suspected cultists.

Confirming the incident in an interview in Lafia, the Nasarawa State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Samaila Usman, said the victim had earlier reported to his parents that some people threatened to kidnap and remove his eyes, but the parents ignored the complaint.

Usman said the command had already deployed its men in the scene of the incident to ensure that those behind the heinous act were arrested and prosecuted.

Usman stated,

“The parents ignored the complaint by their son; they did not show any concern or report the matter to the police on time. And some weeks later, while on their farm, some unknown persons kidnapped their son and took him away to a distance of about two kilometres before they removed his two eyes and left the body.

“It was the following day that the parents reported the matter to the police station in Keana Local Government Area of the state.”

The police spokesperson added that Ajeh was being treated at the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia.

  20. The boys father was careless. What would make people treating a seven year old boy and actually carry out the act. The father has some explaining to do. This looks like an act of retribution.

  29. Ha! This so serious, what is the world tuning to, why is man heart full of wickedness, may God strengthen the little child and to those that did this God will expose you all

  30. What could this little boy have possibly done to these cultists to deserve such a terrible thing? And why did his parents casually brush off their child’s complaints knowing that they live in a dangerous region? God save the little boy and help him get over this trauma.

  31. What did the boy do to deserve this kind of treatment from them, God must surely expose those behind this wicked act

  32. What a world we live in, what could a seven year old boy do to anybody to warrant this wickedness I pray God saves the innocent boy

  40. Nothing is hidden under the sun, when they will be killed we all will start crying, I believe no act of the wicked shall go unpunished

  41. The world is polluted with evil dust, people are heartless and mean. What on earth will they do with the innocent boys eyes leaving in this lifetime of sorrow, o God where is thine eyes?, shine your light upon us.

  42. Am so sorry for the little boy who has been put to forever blindness…and the patent who also has been put to sorrow…may God continue to visit those that has said man will know no peace….

  43. This Is indeed a heinous act. What have a little child of this age could have done for them to have melted this kind of thing to. God have mercy!!! Wicked world. Save your children lord

  44. Jesus!!!
    cultist should be punnished and prohibited from nigeria,
    hope the government do something about the boy situation

  45. Due to the nonchalant attitude of the parents the child ended up like this,, parents should always listen to the complaint of their children
    Those cultists are wicked and they should not be left scout free

  46. Parents should be watchful because perilous act is seriously going on…report any matter,don’t say,its a small matter. The bit could have been saved if early report was made to the police.
