Two suspects arrested in Bauchi state over ritual killing of a little girl, have told the police why they embarked on the dastardly act.
It is reported that the suspects, Abdulkadir Wada, 19, and Adamu Abdulrauf, 20, confessed that a marabou (native doctor) contracted them to bring the vagina of a little girl for ritual purposes for the sum of N500, 000.
Speaking in Hausa, Wada, the chief culprit, said both he and his accomplice, Abdulrauf, had gone to Kwata, the area where the latter’s elder brother, who is married, is staying. Upon reaching the area, they waylaid a little girl into an uncompleted building and strangled her to death.
“Abdulrauf then removed a knife from his pocket and cut off the girl’s private part. It was a marabout, who is now at large, that asked us to get him a female sexual part in return for N500,000,” he said.
On his part, Abdulrauf, denied killing their victim. Meanwhile, the Bauchi Police Spokesperson, DSP Ahmed Mohammed Wakil told PRNigeria that the suspects would soon be arraigned in court after the completion of investigation.
