Police arrest man with six decomposing heads, genitals
By Sesan Olufowobi
The police in Lagos on Friday arrested a 45-year-old man, Sunday Taiwo, with six decomposing human heads and male genitals.
The police also arrested another man, Abayomi Simeon, with 13 bags of Indian hemp and 20 pieces of electronic gadgets including television sets, mobile phone sets and CD players. Both men were arrested at different times by police patrols in the Mushin area of Lagos.
Saturday Punch learnt that Taiwo was arrested on Friday morning at 6.30am by a police anti-robbery squad from Olosan Police Division, Mushin. The strange items were allegedly discovered when the bag he had with him was checked.
Simeon was, however, arrested by policemen in Rapid Response Squad patrol vehicles 052 and 062, when they raided a suspected criminal hideout in Mushin.
Taiwo said he was a contractor and not a ritualist as the police claimed. He said that he got the human parts at Matori Cemetery for people whose identity he declined to reveal, adding that he had been in the business for the past five years.
He also said he opted for the human parts trade after he lost his job as a security guard at the same cemetery. When Saturday Punch visited the police station at Mushin, a large mob that had gathered at the place was seen demanding that the suspect be released to them for instant judgement.
On the other hand, Simeon said he was just an Indian hemp smoker and not a dealer. He said he left his Oke Odo residence to smoke and have a nice time at Mushin before his arrest.
The spokesman of the Lagos State police command, Mr. Frank Mba, who confirmed the arrests, said both suspects would soon be charged to court.

Human Parts Litter Ritualists’ Den
By Jude Orji/Enugu
An evil forest where suspected ritualists dismember their victims has been discovered in Enugu State.
Dismembered parts of victims of ritual killing in Enugu State.
The forest is located at Inyi, Enugu-Ezike in Igbo Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State. When it was searched,
fresh and decomposing human parts were found all over the place but with some vital parts missing.
The scene is reminiscent of the gory findings at the Okija Shrine in Anambra State in 2004.
P.M.News investigations revealed that majority of the victims were taken to the forest and butchered by the suspected ritualists who then remove the vital parts needed for moneymaking ritual.
Many prominent residents of Enugu and environs were said to be patrons of herbalists and native doctors who perform rituals in the forest.
Inyi Enugu-Ezike is also said to be known as a home for dreaded commercial native doctors and ritualists in Nsukka cultural zone, Enugu.
What is, however, baffling to most residents of the town is the alleged involvement of some policemen in the notorious trade in human parts.
A policeman (name withheld), an indigene of Inyi Enugu-Ezike is said to be the godfather of the ritualists and armed robbers terrorising the town and Enugu-Makurdi Road.
P.M.News gathered that the policeman is so powerful in the town that he is regarded as untouchable because he procures powerful native charms and amulets for top police officers, businessmen and politicians across the country.
And to stem the spate of kidnappers, ritual murders and killings in the town, residents have petitioned the state government to take over the large expanse of land belonging to the village shrine Ogene Mmili.
They also demanded punishment for the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
They listed those kidnapped and killed in the town as Miss Eucharia Abugu Eya, 20. She was abducted on the street and later found dead in the evil forest with some parts of her body missing.
Others are Miss Gloria Ugwueke, 35 and Caroline Odo Eje, a widow with seven children who lived near the Inyi police post.
She was on her way to see her aged mother when she was seized by the ritualists and taken to the evil forest where her body was dismembered.
Her leg was later discovered in a shallow grave without other parts.
But the murder of Miss Edith Ijeoma Onu Ossai, 26, last month led to a wide protest in the town by more than 3000 women who demanded an end to the ritual killings.
The body of the late Edith who was on her way to Edumoga Umuogbo Inyi was found mangled near Inyi health centre.
Edith’s heart, kidney and private parts were removed by the ritual killers. Various parts of the victim were buried in different places.
P.M.News learnt that burying parts of the victim separately would keep her spirit divided and prevent her from going after her killers.
It was gathered that Edith’s mother became mad after seeing the dismembered parts of her daughter.
The protesting women led by Mrs. Theresa Mary Daya, Mrs. Mary Abugu, Ugwu Stella Chinello, Alomona Agnes and Mrs. Josephine Ojobor, said they have no choice but to raise an alarm since the efforts of their men have failed.
A source at the Igbo Eze North Divisional Police Headquarters said the police were on the trail of the ritualists.
He disclosed that the matter was being investigated by the D4 section of the Homicide Department, State CID, Enugu

We are indeed one Nigeria,one people one family.
Who knew some Igbo eze men had brothers named Taiwo in Lagos.
How did that happen?

Eight Killed In Ebonyi Over Witchcraft
By Felix Uka,Correspondent, Abakaliki
Eight indigenes of Onicha Community in Onicha Igboeze Local Government Area of Ebonyi State have been killed by their kinsmen for alleged witchcraft.
Assistant Inspector General (AIG) of Police, Zone 9 and the Commissioner of Police (CP), Ebonyi Command, Adanaya Gaya, weekend revealed this to newsmen at the commissioner’s office in Abakaliki, the state capital.
The AIG explained that though no formal report had been made to the police, intelligence reports revealed that one of the victims was taken to a shrine in Delta State to confirm if he was a witch, before he was killed.
Gaya posited that it could be out of fear that nobody in the community had reported the matter to the police.
People of the community had on February protested what they called negligence of the area by the state government in terms of infrastructure development and selfishness of their kinsmen in government, and in the process vandalised 12 houses including that of the deputy governor, Prof. Chigozie Ogbu.
Two policemen allegedly kidnapped at the wake of the protest are still missing.
The AIG explained that about a fortnight ago, the Igboeze people undertook the second phase of the demonstration, razing the house of the deputy governor that was earlier vandalised.
He said the 22 persons arrested in connection with the acts had been arraigned.
Ajakaiye explained that the arrest of some of those who testified at the judicial panel of inquiry set up by the state government was not out of place, hence the panel had not sat again.
Investigations by Sunday Independent revealed that the second phase of the attack of the deputy governor’s house was fuelled by the arrest of those who testified at the panel, contrary to assurances by the panel that no volunteers at the panel would be arrested.
The AIG, however, said the arrest was not at the venue of the panel sitting, nonetheless pointing out that there was no immunity to arrest for anybody.
He said full unit of mobile policemen and the regular police had been stationed in the community and that the police would get to the root of what happened to their men.
The police boss explained that a missing person is not declared dead until after seven years, saying that officially the policemen are still alive, "but inside me, I feel they are gone".

Nigeria governor denies cult link
The governor of a south east Nigerian state has denied being involved in a secret ritual that was filmed and
uploaded onto the internet. Theodore Orji of Abia state told the BBC the film was a fake.
The film features a man who strongly resembles the governor, crouching in front of a shrine in shackles dressed only in his Y-fronts.
The shrine is believed to be one in Anambra state that has been linked to scores of murders.
The 31-second clip was uploaded onto the internet by saharareporters.com, a group of Nigerian "citizen journalists".
You can do anything with a computer these days
Governor Abia state
Another man standing behind the one in Y-fronts brandishes a chicken and an egg.
It is not clear what exactly is going on in the clip, which has no sound, but it seems the man resembling the governor is forced to symbolically lay an egg.
Many Nigerians hold on to their traditional beliefs in addition to being Muslim or Christian.
But Mr Orji told the BBC's Network Africa programme he was not a member of a secret cult.
"I am a Christian by birth, my father owns a church. I cannot go to my father's church and be a member of a cult," he said.
Okija Shrine Found in 2004 after a tip off
Located in Okija Anambra state
The shrine was lined with coffins
33 bodies were discovered
Bodies were missing parts
30 arrests were made, nobody was charged
"You can do anything with a computer these days," he added.
He said the accusations were part of a plot to run him out of politics.
Mr Orji won his election in Abia state with 82% of the vote, but he was in jail at the time.
He was accused of complicity with his boss, former governor Orji Kalu, who is now facing corruption charges.
Last month an election tribunal overturned Mr Orji's election, saying he had not resigned his post as required before the poll.
But he remains governor pending an appeal.
"They are trying to heap all the crimes of the world upon my head," Mr Orji said.
In 2004, 33 bodies were discovered at a shrine in Okija, Anambra state. [size=8pt]
Many were missing body parts, hands heads and genitals, believed to have been used in rituals.
30 men were arrested, but nobody was tried.
The police said they suspected the victims had been murdered, but the arrested men said the bodies had been brought to the shrine by their families.
They claimed the men had died in accidents, killed by spirits after breaking agreements made at the shrine.
Mr Orji told the BBC shrines were common all over Nigeria
"It is where people go to settle scores and land disputes," he said.
It is not the first time a politician has been filmed in this way.
In 2003 Anambra governor Chris Ngige was filmed participating in a shrine ritual.
He did not deny the charges and said he had gone along with the ritual because he was being blackmailed,
but had no intention of sticking to the deal.

Why must everything here have an ethnic undertone? What is wrong with you ignorant people? Because his name is Taiwo does not mean that it's only the yorubas that do it, ibos, hausas, ijaws etc has similar stories and you cannot curb your own by hiding them no matter how hard you try.
Some of you are so tribalistic that you can hide a paedophile who'll continue raping your children just to play tribal politics. What is the meaning of this tribe ish that is eating Nigeria raw? There is hardly any day you go through threads here without seeing one or two of these goddamn tribalists posting one nonsense or the other. Are you people infants? Non of you tribalists will see a good thing in life if you continue hiding evil because you want to preserve the name of your ethnic stupid and senseless group politics that has never put food on your table or provided better life for your family.
Nonsense, that's why lots of things were backwards in Ilesha when i went there because they are not only playing tribal politics but they are playing smaller ones among themselves, killing each other with machete and same stories go on in other places. Some of you are so tribalistic that you will prefer Nigeria to remain in a deteriorated state as long as the stupid politics goes on.
Shame on you all, other nations are moving ahead, fighting their problems unanimously, creating jobs, medical etc but we are more interested in promoting ibo, hausa and yoruba politics in Nigeria. Arewa this, ohaneze that etc. Being yoruba or hausa or ibo will not provide food, medical insurance and education for you. If any of you wants a better life for your children, you better do away with this tribal nonsense and face your inherent woes.
@Adminstrator: I don't know why you still allow these tribalists to hand around here. They honestly irritate me.
