The Yoruba Cannibal by Johndoe100(m): 5:37pm On Jul 31, 2012
Jimoh Obabu Salau probably was born and grew up like most other Nigerian men of his age and generation. Unlike his contemporaries, however by the time Jimoh had joined the army and become a fully-fledged “mad dog” as we fondly call our uniformed men and women he had evolved into something very few people could have imagined. The problem was that Jimoh liked to eat. He liked to eat human beings, their internal organs to be precise. When the army sent him to fight alongside others in the Ecomog forces in the Liberia this was a perfect opportunity for Jimoh to get a steady supply of his favourite food. Alas as with all good things he over did it and was apprehended for killing and eating innocent civilians. In the best traditions of the military, they simply shipped him back home to Nigeria and gave him the boot from the Army leaving him free to eat some more of us.

Either due to circumstances or simply because women are a pain in the azz, he killed and ate the intestines of his wife and two children in 2003; he then sold the other parts of their bodies to people. Sadly, his wife was a police officer and was missed, he was promptly traced arrested and charged for the triple homicide. He was sentenced to death and was awaiting execution at the Kaduna prison. What happened next is not too clear but it seems it was decided by some “powerful people” that he was useful so he was PARDONED. And set free to eat some more of us.

Having learnt his lesson, that eating people that can be missed is not the brightest idea Jimoh relocated to Ogun state, in the southwest and eventually became an okada rider who chose a route that enabled him to take passengers to a motor park whilst passing through a bushy area. This was perfect for him, as he made sure that he had plenty of “meat” to eat and sell. Once again, luck ran out on him as some farmers saw him as he was killing a young 22-year-old student (Miss Idowu Aliyu) who he was taking to the motor park to catch a vehicle back to school. The farmers quickly rounded him up and called the cops. Sadly, the girl was dead. Jimoh is still being held by the police and has not yet been charged to court for this latest death.

The police believe that he has not been working alone and I agree. How many of you would like to bet that Jimoh would again be pardoned and freed to eat even more of us?

Had the name been Igbo,it will make frontpage
There is no tribe in Nigeria that eats humans
Sick people exhibit cannibalism but some of these Igbo haters won't see threads like this
They would wish his name were Clifford Orji the mad man so they can continue their song and dance

He is not a cannibal because of his tribe
He is a cannibal because he is a sick lunatic

Not condemning him because of his tribe. Infact, I have no comment on it. Just addressing what the guy asked. No offense but since I've been a member, any thread about any crime committed by a yoruba never really makes in on the front page. Everyother ethnicity is the opposite.
