A 22-year-old man identified as Musa Hamza has been arrested for allegedly beheading and gouging out his neighbour’s eyes.
It was alleged that Hamza lured his neighbour, Adamu Ibrahim, into the outskirt of the village forest and killed him with a stick.
Hamza is said to have beheaded the head from Ibrahim’s body, forcefully gouged out his two eyes and burnt his body.
Spokesperson of the command, DSP Ahmed Mohammed Wakil, confirmed the incident in a statement on Monday, January 4th, 2021.
In his words,
“Musa Hamza lured Adamu Ibrahim, of the same address, into the outskirt of the village forest and killed him with a stick. He beheaded the head from the body, forcefully gouged out the two eyes, burnt the body/head and buried them separately in a shallow grave located in the nearby bush.
“During investigation, all the buried human parts were exhumed and taken to General Hospital Alkaleri for medical examination where the medical doctor certified the corpse death.”
Upon interrogation, the two eyes were recovered from the principal suspect, who voluntarily confessed to have committed the crime and was asked by a ritualist to bring the eyes for ritual to enable him to be rich.
Investigation is on-going after which suspects will be charged to court for prosecution and possible conviction.
