The remains of a female officer of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) who went missing 18 months ago has been found in a shallow grave in Obi Local Government Area of Benue State.
Cynthia, an Idoma native of Otukpo origin, suddenly went missing while her wedding plans were underway.
Seventeen months after she was declared missing, it has been discovered that her fiance slaughtered her for rituals.
Her husband-to-be and the witch doctor who used her blood and body parts for rituals have been arrested by the police.
An informant, a commercial Motorcycle operator (Okada) who allegedly saw how her would-be husband used her for ritual purposes, summoned enough courage to inform her family about his discovery.
Thereafter, he (cyclist) had led the family and security operatives to arrest the groom who in turn led the police to Ogun State where they arrested the native doctor alleged to have performed the ritual at Obi LGA before his relocation to a south west state.
“Cynthia, the daughter of the former Mayor of Otukpo was found, but allegedly killed and buried by her husband-to-be for ritual purpose, a source disclosed to Daily Trust.
“An Okada man who knew what happened to late Cynthia Onche went to her family members and gave them the news. He led them to arrest her proposed husband, an Igbo man who led the police to Ogun State where they arrested the native doctor, a Yoruba, who performed the ritual.
