A Nigerian hunchback man has been found dead, two weeks after he was kidnapped in Kogi state.
Ritual killers have been suspected to be involved in his death.
The man identified as Suberu Dada, was declared missing few weeks ago only to be found dead in a suspected case of ritual killing.
Dada was kidnapped on Nov 22nd and his decaying body was found today, Dec 8th, at Iruvochinomi, Ege, Adavi LGA in Kogi state.
Kogi politician, Natasha Akpoti had taken to Facebook two days after his kidnap to share a “missing person” post, begging the public to reach out if they have information that could lead to his rescue.
According to her he was “abducted by gunmen in a black SUV while waiting to cross the road leading to Oride mosque, beside St. Paul’s Church Obeiba, Ihima.”
It is suspected that Suberu Dada was murdered for ritual purposes because of his hunchback.
Dada’s death comes years after Nigerian hunchbacks cried out that their lives are endangered because of the belief that their condition makes them potent for rituals.
