A ritualist living in Opanda area of Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu state who specializes in forcefully having s*x with minors for ritual purposes has been caught. The man who often had anal s*x with his victims was caught by men of the Nigerian Police Force after they trailed him.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu revealed this in a statement in Enugu on Sunday. He added that his eventual arrest was through intelligence by detectives of the command.
According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, Amaraizu said the suspect was nabbed on December 11, 2106, after the police got “a lot of report” about him.
The police spokesman said the suspect had believed that wealth could be gotten through money ritual by sexually abusing male and female minors.
“He has sexually abused no fewer than 11 minors through their anus.
“The suspect revealed that he has a white cloth with which he used to clean the face of his victims, usually within the age range of three, four, seven, eight, nine and eleven.
“He further revealed to the police that as soon as the white cloth was used to clean any face, the person would lose consciousness and follow him to where he will abuse him or her through the anus.
“This is for the purpose of reaping the victim’s destiny, which in turn would help to boost the process of his financial acquisition and wealth,” he said.
When asked whether he had started getting the money, Amaraizu said the suspect replied that he was still in the process as it needed to be completed with at least 15 minors.
The police spokesman said a full-scale investigation had started into the activities of the suspect with a view to arresting his accomplices if there were any.
Amaraizu said the suspect had been cooperating with policemen that were interrogating him.
“The suspect is now regretting his alleged nefarious activities of sexually abusing minors through their anus,’’ the police spokesman added.
