A man has been arrested in Niger state after he killed an okada rider and harvested his intestine for rituals.
The man who is a welder, identified as Tunde Tayo was arrested by Niger state police command for killing a commercial motorcyclist popularly known as Okada man, and harvesting his vital organs including his intestine for rituals.
Tunde Tayo lives at Ungwan Roka in Maitumbi, a suburb in Bosso Local Government Area where the headless body of 25-year-old Abdullahi Sale was recovered in a shallow grave. He has now confessed to the crime and was paraded before newsmen on Saturday, September 14.
“I beheaded and removed Sale’s intestine for ritual purposes. I even buried him in a shallow grave near my house” he said.
Tunde who is a father of five was arrested after neighbours reported the newly dug grave close to his house to the police.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect admitted to the crime after everyone in the house was arrested after the headless body of the okada rider was exhumed. Tayo who said he committed the said offence because his returns as welder could not sustain his family of seven, will be charged to court when investigation has been concluded.
