|Where Is Clifford Orji? by carmelily: 2:37pm On Jul 12, 2006|
some years ago (about 10 years?) we read in the papers and saw on TV the story of a cannibal, Clifford Orji in Lagos. he'd confessed to killing AND eating (eeew!) over 100 humans.
last we heard he was in police custody.
what became of him, any1 knows?

Remembering Clifford Orji, the cannibal of Costain.
I remember Clifford Orji, that supposed 'mad man' under the bridge in Costain Lagos killing people and eating them and selling off their parts to highly-placed Nigerians either for money rituals or other diabolical adventures; I remember this cannibal not as a hero but a murderous villain!
When Clifford the killer was caught human parts were discovered in his 'den' with personal effects of those who fell victim to his cannibalism and ritualism especially women. I think the courts declared him 'insane' to stand trial, whether he was feigning insanity to escape justice is another matter for conjecture. But many of his customers must have felt sad at his capture and exposure because the supply line was finally cut off saving more lives from being plucked away at their prime.
I remember the late Eddy Nawgu in Anambra State who was killed by the Bakasi boys. Eddy Nawgu who had high-profile clients from north and south and east was a specialist 'god' who did all sorts of evil to give protection to big men or make blood money for them through ritual killings. Stories were told about how little children disappeared in his neighbourhood only to be traced to his evil shrine. In one particular gruesome episode he was reported to have pounded a few weeks old baby in a mortar! A reverend father in the village was forced to confront him but he stood his ground; the ordained priest left after he discovered that dreadlock-wearing Eddy was satan incarnate but not without cursing him. When his cup of evil got filled to the brim the youths under the aegis of Bakasi Boys eliminated him by using cutlass to butcher him in his fortress! Good riddance!
A true story was told about a young man frustrated in life in the city who thought that money ritual was the solution. He was asked to bring forth his mother for him to be richer than the Dangotes and Igbinedions. The boy went home to the village and hoodwinked his innocent mother into believing that she would be escorting him to his future wife's house in another town to get acquainted with the girl. As they arrived the ritual doctor's abode the evil man's wife had had a little baby few months past. As mother and child waited for the marabout to ask them in late in the night the newly-born child was crying without ceasing! And the woman visitor showed motherly compassion by carrying the baby and as soon as the baby was caressed by her in her arms she stopped crying but as soon as she gave the little baby girl to her mother weeping set in again and again. This continued for hours on end.
As this unusual scenario was playing itself out in a bizarre fashion the father of the crying baby, the local ritual priest was consulting his gods to know if the woman was good enough for sacrifice. When he came out of his house of horror he announced to the boy whose appetite for richness had been wet that his oracle was against using her mother for rituals citing the spirit of the little crying girl as reason. He warned the boy to go home with her mother and never to try using her blood for anything of such nature.
As mother and son were going home after a failed mission with the poor mother (saved by the spirit of innocence behind the baby girl) asking after the young bridegroom whom they had come to see the boy suddenly became mad on the way confessing his sins and running away after tearing into pieces his clothes; he was never to be seen again!
That reminds one of the Otokoto ritual killing episode in Owerri Imo State few years ago. The big men who were implicated in the horrendous story of human killings were not touched but the few field executioners were lined up and summarily executed, Obidiozor and co. Only God knows how many Nigerians must have met their gory deaths in the hands of politicians on ritual prowl as elections draw closer.
Like Orji Emeka Ezeugo (Reverend King) now in jail for arson and murder was busy in his so-called church committing fornication and adultery. In his trial that was widely publicised a lady witness told the court how Rev. King was playing God in his church making rules and laws that were out of tune with modern christian doctrines. One of the witnesses who testified against him narrated how day after day she administered MouthAction on King and serve him food Unclad!
Now that he is cooling his heels in Kirikiri maximum prison in Lagos I believe he must have had ample time and opportunity to reflect on his actions while in 'power'. The prison experience may reform him and he may undergo the Saul-Paul Damascus transformation. His follies while living in his 'paradise' must have been a heavy moral burden as he serves his long term in jail. A decent society does not need the services of people like him and Orji who inflict the basest of bestiality on their subjects or victims.
Today I believe out there in the jungle that is Lagos and elsewhere in our country where all things in their oddity happen daily a whole lot of Rev. Kings and Clifford Orjis still stalk the land. But the solace we can take is that there's a Higher Master up there monitoring our every move and at the fullest of time what was done in hiding and in secret places will be proclaimed from roof tops. That is beside final judgement that awaits everything that has breath.

I never really believed that story of clifford orji selling human parts to rich and influential nigerians, I think he was just a cannibal and an original mad man!
Back in the days when I lived in surulere, there was a an uncompleted building on my street where some igbo boys rented some space for a shop, pple wondered what they were selling coz it didn't seem like any kind of trade was going on there, but they did notice that at least once a week, these guys would come to their shop with one victim and close up their shop without the victim coming out, as the gist was going round, residents began watching these guys, on one fateful day they arrived to open their shop with a little boy still in his school uniform, word had gone round and street residents had gathered. On bursting into the shop, they found the boy there in the midst of these traders, he was Unclad, they asked him what he was doing there, the boy didn't say anything, somebody noticed a noose on the floor and mentioned that the room smelt funny and the rug looked damp, on lifting a corner of the rug they found a huge hole with dried bllod in it and sum sulphur like substance around.
My mum later explained that it was to kill the smell of the blood, anyway the residents descended on these boys and beat them silly, then eventually handed them over to the police, funny enough we eventually heard that these boys were released after the police carried out their investigation and found out that it was goats blood and no crime had been committed, these boys were allowed to walk away (prolly after bribing the police) well this is nigeria these things happen.
I dnt knw abt orji but I knw that pple do all sorts and go to all lengths to make this thing called money, we all need to be very careful.
